Shredder’s Revenge will include the voice cast of the 1987 cartoon

Like many cocky kids of the 90s, I grew up in 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. What followed was a love affair I had with slimy sewer mutants for many years, spanning video games and toys. Dotemu has shown a particular knack for tapping into the nostalgia of that era. And with the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revengeit goes even further. The Shredder’s Revengedeveloped by Tribute Games, not only recalls the best TMNT game, but it will include the voice of this famous cartoon.

The news is accompanied by a new 11-minute gameplay video released by IGN earlier today. The outlet reported that the entire cartoon voice cast of The Boys in Green was coming to The Shredder’s Revenge. Cam Clarke returns as the stoic frontman Leonardo, Rob Paulsen will once again voice the brash Raph, Barry Gordon returns as the scientifically-minded Donatello, and of course, we can’t forget Mikey, voiced by Townsend. Coleman.

It’s unclear if the rest of the voice cast will return for The Shredder’s Revenge. The game also features Master Splinter and April O’Neil, so it would be totally radical to hear Peter Renaday and Renae Jacobs return to their respective roles. A lot of Tortoise voice actors have continued to be a part of the franchise, whether through cartoons or video games. Paulsen (who later voiced Yakko Warner in The Animaniacs) returned in Nickelodeon’s 2012 TMNT show not like Raphael, but like Donatello.

This is all super cheesy stuff, so thanks for sticking around for so long.

Reassemble the group

Bringing the original cartoon voice into the fold was not planned with The Shredder’s Revenge, but it’s welcome. The game is rich in throwbacks to the old cartoon. Its reveal trailer even begins with a remix of the show’s theme song. Good luck getting that out of your head.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge should come out of the sewers this summer.
