The bombshell announcement also revealed the first look at Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge’s 6-player multiplayer. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge’s enemy groups scale in size based on the number of players kicking shell, making 6-player multiplayer a totally intense showdown against Shredder’s minions. Piling friends on the same couch isn’t the only way to play together; online multiplayer for 2-6 players has been confirmed, with heroes able to drop in and out of play at any time.
