Arcade1Up is Making a TMNT ‘Turtles in Time’ Cabinet!

Not a single arcade in Tampa Bay had Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time when I was a radical teen in the ’90s. We had to settle with the SNES port. Admittedly, that port was great, but the SNES pad doesn’t do justice to an arcade cabinet beat-em-up’s joystick and buttons.
Arcade1Up has yet again supercharged our nostalgia cells and is releasing the second TMNT arcade game for the home market.
Turtles in Time will come with wi-fi. This will allow you to play with all four turtles via online multiplayer. That’s a great addition, especially for someone like me who only has the rebooted game from 2009.

Turtles in Time had a brief resurgence on the XBOX 360 when Ubisoft Singapore made a new version of the game sporting 3D graphics. Sadly, Turtles in Time Re-Shelled has long been delisted from the XBOX Arcade store. The same fate befell the original TMNT Arcade Game and the Konami X-MEN game.

It is still possible to download the games via a 360, but only if you’d purchased them on release. Here’s a guide on how to do just that:
