If Shredder’s Revenge wasn’t enough, you’ll soon be able to play virtually every major Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game released for console thanks to the new Cowabunga Collection, which now has a release date.
IGN can exclusively reveal that The Cowabunga Collection will be available on August 30th on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC and Nintendo Switch. The collection will feature 13 games from the franchise’s 8- and 16-bit days, including popular staples like Turtles in Time for the Super Nintendo.
Developed by Digital Eclipse, The Cowabunga Collection caused a mini sensation when it was announced in March, not least because many of the games in the collection are difficult or impossible to obtain on modern consoles. Many of them, like Hyperstone Heist for Sega Genesis, will be available to current audiences for the first time.
To refresh your memory, here is the full list of games in the collection.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Arcade)
- TMNT: Turtles in Time (Arcade)
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)
- TMNT II: The Arcade Game (NES)
- TMNT III: The Manhattan Project (NES)
- TMNT IV: Turtles in Time (SNES)
- TMNT: The Hyperstone Raid (Genesis)
- TMNT: Fall of the Foot Clan (Game Boy)
- TMNT II: Back from the Sewers (Game Boy)
- TMNT III: Radical Rescue (Game Boy)
- TMNT: Tournament Fighters (NES)
- TMNT: Tournament Fighter (SNES)
- TMNT: Tournament Fighter (Genesis)
In addition to a number of classic releases, Digital Eclipse includes a wealth of original design documents. The collection will also support online games for TMNT Arcade, Turtles in Time Arcade and TMNT: The Hyperstone Heist, as well as Tournament Fighters for the SNES.
The announcement was part of San Diego Comic-Con 2022, where The Cowabunga Collection has a major presence. Stay tuned for much more Turtles-related content on IGN’s live show, as well as everything else being shown during SDCC 2022.
