Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT): The Cowabunga Collection is available for pre-order!

A couple of weeks ago it was announced that Nickelodeon, Konami and Digital Eclipse partnered up to adapt 13 classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) games to the modern age. This announcement single-handedly made it Sony’s best State of Play, in my personal opinion. The defining arcade beat’em experiences along with 11 other incredible games are coming back to fuel our nostalgic needs. We do not have an exact date yet, but you can now guarantee your copy of the greatest collection of TMNT Games by pre-ordering yours today!

TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection Pre-Order

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection is now available for pre-order for PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC Steam. Consoles have their choice of a physical or digital edition. Personally, I know I need the physical edition. The game’s RRP $39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99. Which for this incredible collection actually feels like a very reasonable price, but also I’m sure many people would not pay more. It seems like a good price because I know I spent more than that in quarters… Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Arcade) was really hard.

The 13 games in the collection are:

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Arcade)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time (Arcade)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game (NES)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project (NES)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters (NES)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (Super Nintendo)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters (Super Nintendo)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist (Sega Genesis)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters (Sega Genesis)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of The Foot Clan (Game Boy)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Back From The Sewers (Game Boy)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Radical Rescue (Game Boy)

The TMNT arcade games and console versions really set the standard for beat’em games. Turtles in Time is a top 3 for both arcade/console beat’em ups. It is amazing the collection will include both versions. My hope is that the beat’em up games have the 4-player option. Hyperstone Heist and Manhattan Project with 4-players would be a dream come true. I am also incredibly interested to see how different the Japanese versions of the games are. The Cowabunga Collection is truly a dream come true for many, if not all, Ninja Turtles fans.
