Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection Has a Release Date

If Shredder’s Revenge wasn’t enough, you’ll soon be able to play virtually every major Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game released to console thanks to the new Cowabunga Collection, which now has a release date.

IGN can exclusively reveal that The Cowabunga Collection will be releasing August 30 on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC and Nintendo Switch. The collection will bring with it 13 games from the franchise’s 8 and 16-bit days, including beloved staples like Turtles in Time for the Super Nintendo.

Developed by Digital Eclipse, The Cowabunga Collection caused a mini-sensation when it was announced back in March, not the least because many of the games in the collection are difficult to impossible to obtain on modern consoles. Many of them, such as Hyperstone Heist for the Sega Genesis, are becoming available to current audiences for the very first time.

To refresh your memory, here’s the complete list of games in the collection.

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

In addition to a slew of classic releases, Digital Eclipse is including a trove of original design documents. The collection will also support local and online co-op for TMNT 2: The Arcade Game, TMNT 3: The Manhattan Project, and TMNT 4: Turtles in Time. Hyperstone Heist will feature local multiplayer.

The announcement was part of San Diego Comic-Con 2022, where The Cowabunga Collection has a large presence. Stay tuned for lots more Turtles related content on IGN’s live show as well as everything else shown during SDCC 2022.
