Streaming giant Netflix adds acclaimed beat ’em up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge to its growing list of mobile games.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge will be playable on mobile devices using the Netflix app. The game was first released on June 16, 2022, via Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, to critical acclaim, with the PlayStation 5 version following after a few months. This will be the first TMNT game to be available via Netflix.
Netflix launched its gaming service on November 2021 as an additional premium for its subscribers. With more than 40 games in its library, it’s becoming a viable alternative and option for those looking to play video games without incurring additional costs since it comes built-in with the Netflix subscription. Meanwhile, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge was one of 2022’s success stories. It helped bring the nostalgic TMNT gameplay back to the limelight.
According to Netflix’s official Twitter account, Shredder’s Revenge will be available starting January 10, 2023. This means that platforms such as PC and mobile which carry the service will be able to access the said game (along with the broad selection of other titles.) The game will be strictly single-player per mobile device. However, players will be able to access story and arcade—and that includes online gameplay and teaming up with others or friends online via an in-game code. Along with the requirement of being an existing Netflix subscriber, additional reports say that cross-play for Shredder’s Revenge will be limited. The existing game only allows joining with Xbox and PC gamers. In the mobile version of the game, linking will only be available between iOS and Android users (as confirmed by Netflix representative Chrissy Kelleher to other news sources.)
Having Shredder’s Revenge on mobile is a great idea because of its fast pick-up and play party setting. With mobile phones being a constant part of everyday life nowadays, it’s even easier for more users to download the game, and connect to other people. The last update to Shredder’s Revenge was as recent as December so expect that continued support will be provided moving forward.
With Netflix having a positive forecast of subscribers in the future, subscribers are expected to rise. This also means the possible audience of Netflix games will grow and help expose Shredder’s Revenge (and other games) to potentially interested parties who would want to play the game from the comfort of their mobile phones.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is playable now on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and Mobile via the Netflix Application.
