During this week’s Indie World Showcase, Nintendo announced that action roguelite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Splintered Fate will be coming to Switch in July as a timed console exclusive. The company shared an announcement trailer for the upcoming release (below) showing everyone’s favourite half-shell heroes—Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo—battling Foot Clan hordes with iconic weapons and unique, upgradable special moves.

Developed by Super Evil Megacorp, Splintered Fate was first released on May 3rd, 2023, as an Apple Arcade exclusive. Now coming to Switch, Nintendo has shared a description of what players can expect from the game on their platform:

The heroic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles need to fend off the Foot Clan in their first roguelike adventure, travelling through reality-bending portals to rescue their kidnapped master, Splinter. Every level has the potential to change with randomised power-ups, changing room layouts and boss modifiers. Permanently upgrade and strengthen your Turtle powers by spending in-game currency on ability-enhancing artifacts and use your increased skills to take on more challenging runs. Explore iconic New York City locations solo or jump online* with up to three other players in drop-in/drop-out co-op play. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Splintered Fate jumps onto Nintendo Switch as a timed console exclusive this July.

The last few years have seen somewhat of a “shell-aissance” for the TMNT brand, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection, a modern repackaging of several arcade and console brawlers, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, a new, retro-inspired brawler for modern platforms.

TMNT has had almost constant reboots and refreshes throughout my living memory, and I have consumed much of that over time. I’m no Shellhead, but I’ve certainly found plenty of enjoyment in the numerous TMNT side-scrolling brawlers out there. Splintered Fate, however, is different; it’s probably an edge case for our coverage as a roguelite with visible damage numbers and progression via skill upgrades, so we definitely think there is enough here to interest RPGFan and RPG fans alike.

Until next time… cowabunga, dudes!

Claton fell in love with the genre whilst watching his childhood friend spam GF summons in FF VIII; thinking "wow these graphics are just like real life. Is this really a game"? He’s been chasing that feeling of awe and wonder ever since. Who knows? Maybe he’ll find it right here with RPGFan. When he’s not writing for RPGFan, you’ll find him nonchalantly leaning against the ballroom wall being the “best looking guy here.” …whatever.
