A collection of the world’s most famous beat ’em ups starring the Heroes in a Half Shell is coming to consoles. During Sony’s State of Play, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection was revealed, and it’s coming to PlayStation 4 and 5 this year.
The Ninja Turtles have been gaining a lot of momentum recently in the world of games, as if the industry has been teleported back to 1987.
