Raw Thrills, the company keeping arcade gaming alive in North America, has announced a new multiplayer beat em up game based on Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.


With the IAAPA 2017 trade show only a few weeks away, I was surprised to find out that the game would be showing up and that it brings back a genre many of us have longed to see grace the arcade scene again: the brawler / beat ’em up. Long time readers of the site might recall my lamentations over the lack of brawlers in the modern age…looks like that article might need a refresh soon.

Many of you are familiar with Raw Thrills’ other game that has been on test this year, Injustice Arcade. I’ve heard from some in the “fighting Game Community” (FGC) that they are disappointed in that. However, if you are into 1v1 fighting games, you have to realize that IJ was not made for the FGC audience. It was made for card collectors, casual gamers and comic book fans. By the reports I’ve been hearing so far, it’s doing extremely well earnings wise with that crowd.


This is a “new game, built from the ground up” by Raw Thrills. All of the game assets are based upon the most recent TV series that is found on Nickelodeon. RT added that the company has been working to create novel forms of entertainment, particularly something multiplayer that brings four people close to each other, working together to play through the game and defeat bosses

It was also noted that Raw Thrills intends this to be a total re-imagining of the brawler genre, and this includes more moves and more environmental interaction,. Also planned are Turtle Power special attacks, and voiceover work from the entire cast of the show.  Raw Thrills then went on to say that they have received excellent feedback so far for improvements and the response has been very positive tp the game thus far. Perhaps this will receive a console version sometime soon.
