Konami on possibility of 2000s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game collection
Konami has spoken to Nintendo Everything about whether we could one day see a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game collection featuring titles from the 2000s, leaving the door open to the possibility.
Just a few days ago, Konami released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection. It includes about a dozen classic games between the arcade, NES, SNES, and Game Boy. Konami’s support of the franchise didn’t stop there though, as we also saw a number of additional releases for other platforms later on.
So could we see a 2000s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game collection? Here’s what Konami producer Charles Murakami had to say on that front:
“Never say never! I’ve waited decades for a TMNT Collection, and seeing other fans share my desire to see this project come together is one of the greatest moments in my career. Although sometimes the stars have to align for a project to come together, I’m encouraged when you see fans nudging those stars into place.”
Murakami did also tell us that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection came about because “fans were very vocal about wanting the TMNT games” following the Arcade, Castlevania, and Contra Anniversary Collections from Konami. If they make enough noise, perhaps we could see something similar for the 2000s games. Presumably that would include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare, and potentially Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Melee.
