Konami is bringing the TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection to San Diego Comic-Con 2022, as well as the Turtle Lai!

Konami just announced that fans of the pubescent terrapins can experience TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection for themselves in the Turtle Lair at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. That is right, fans will be able to play this collection of classic Turtles video games in the home of the Turtles themselves from July 21-24. Fans will have to have SDCC badges in order to check out the game ahead of the game’s launch. This is a dream come true for many, including myself, and San Diego Comic-Con 2022 might have just become the best Comic-Con ever because of this news. Watch the trailer of the announcement below.

To be honest, the trailer featured a lot more actual turtles than the TMNT, but it was still a lot of fun to watch. The most important thing is the information, which states that fans with badges can play The Cowabunga Collection ahead of its release in the home of the TMNT. In addition to the opportunity, Konami will be hosting a panel for the game with Kevin Eastman, Charles Muirakami, and Chris Kohler, on Friday, July 22, 2022, from 3:15-4:15 pm PDT in Room 6BCF. Full details about the event from Konami can be found below.
