In many episodes of the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, the Turtles would usually either take on bad guys as a united group of four or split into two even groups of two. Four is a nice, round number, which lends itself well to multiplayer structures like the one present in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. However, unlike past Turtle games, it doesn’t end at just four. So, how many players can play in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge?
How Many Players Can Play in Shredder’s Revenge?
Rather than the typical four-player limit you may have expected, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge can actually support up to six players at once! That’s enough to support a full team of all four Turtles, plus April and Splinter (though someone will need to swap out for Casey once you unlock him).
You can have anywhere from one to six players in a single play session. Players are free to drop in or out of the action whenever they like too, so don’t worry about starting the game before the whole party is assembled. One thing you should know, though, is that the number and strength of enemies on screen will be raised proportionately to the number of players playing. More players mean stronger and more numerous baddies. They can’t just let you steamroll the whole game with a full team, after all.
You can also mix and match local and online players to reach your maximum desired party size. For instance, you can have two buddies playing with you on the couch, then invite three other folks to join the fun online. This is true for all platforms except for PlayStation consoles, which can only handle up to four local players and can’t mix and match local and online.
Playing through the game with a full team of six may get a little too hectic for some players, so don’t worry about dialing back if you think you need to.
