That is one heck of a collection, and only $40. Looks like it's going to be on pretty much everything, too.

I'm one of those weirdos whose fave TMNT game is Manhattan Project, so I was overjoyed to see that on there.


Fearful asymmetry
Forty dollars is more than I wanted to pay, but pay it I shall. I loved TMNT: Tournament Fighters on the Super NES, and while I do have it for the original system in Michigan, who knows when I'll get my hands on that cartridge again. This will do quite nicely as a substitute.

SNES Turtles in Time alone is a buy from me. That's in my top ten SNES games and hasn't been rereleased since.


did i do all of that?
The only downside is no online play for the NES games (I, too, adore Manhattan Project, Issun lol), but oh well, this is still easily worth a buy.


Son of The Answer Man
On one hand, I own original copies of many of these games and could totally emulate any of them. On the other hand, I could buy them all again and have easy access to multiplayer on the Switch.

(...I know where this is going.)


A Bard Named SPOONY
The Arcade Game (NES) and Turtles in Time (SNES) make this a lock for me. They're my childhood.

So, who do we have to bribe at Disney to get them to lean on Konami to release The Simpsons arcade game on something? Standalone or collection, whatever.

Yeah I've been riding an adrenaline surge from this news since yesterday. That it's confirmed for Switch means I can finally relax. I've been wanting an official release of the arcade games for a long time now. I have easy access to the NES/SNES/Gen games, but being able to play some of them online with friends? Yeah, that's worth the price of admission.

I'm thrilled about every single thing in this compilation, even down to the game boy titles and the tourney fighters (I've never played the Gen or NES versions of those).

All I need now is a release date! (And a release date for Shredder's Revenge if it's not too much to ask.)
As a child of the 80s this is a must buy for me.

I think the game I most looking forward to re-playing is TMNT (NES). With save states I think I will be able to beat this game. I've never beat it before.

Quick aside. I had TMNT for DOS PC and there was an impossible jump in the level 3 sewers. I wrote Konami when I was in elementary school and explained that the jump in level 3 was impossible.

About 3-4 weeks later I got a package in the mail. It had a replacement disk which fixed the impossible jump and letter on Konami (not Ultra) letterhead apologizing for the error. It was a pretty nice surprise to get one random day after school.

I have have liked TMNT (NES and DOS) for a long time.

I'm also looking forward to Turtles in Time.

Michelangelo is my favorite turtle!

There is only one favorite turtle

Really excited for all these, including the Game Boy ones. Radical Rescue is a metroidvania that's...okay. Really hampered by the size of the Game Boy screen and sprites being so big, but still pretty interesting (and fun with rewind functionality)

There's, uh... an Arcade 1Up. If you have the space and some deep pockets.

So, I presume M2 is doing this, since they did the Contra and Castlevania Collections for Konami? Maybe Hamster is doing the arcade games? Maybe? Do we know if Japanese versions are included?

Hope Limited Run does a physical at some point.

Octopus Prime

Mysterious Contraption
Digital Eclipse is handling port duties, and I believe that most of the games include the Japanese ports
