Streets of Rage 4 convinced Nick to contact Dotemu for TMNT

Dotemu is the developer behind Streets of Rage 4, as well as the remake of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. It’s no secret that Dotemu has an affinity for retro projects as well as beat’em-ups, so you’d most likely think their team contacted Nickelodeon about creating TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge. In actuality, it was the other way around. According to a profile in EDGE magazine, it was Nickelodeon who reached out to Dotemu first. Nick had seen the studio’s work on titles like Streets of Rage 4, and they were clearly impressed.
