TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection Gets an Expensive Limited Edition

Preorder the physical limited edition for ooooonly 150 bucks.

It has certainly been a cowabunga-cool week, Turtles fans. The highly anticipated TMNT: The Shredder’s Revenge finally got a release window yesterday, and preorders have opened for a physical limited edition of the also-anticipated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection. The limited edition of the 13-game collection will come with some attractive physical items, but gamers may balk at how much the whole thing costs.

TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection comes from Digital Eclipse and Konami. It will collect a whopping 13 8-bit and 16-bit Ninja Turtles games, including the following co-op classics: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Arcade), TMNT: Turtles in Time (Arcade), TMNT II: The Arcade Game (NES), TMNT III: The Manhattan Project (NES), TMNT IV: Turtles in Time (Super NES), TMNT: The Hyperstone Heist (Genesis). The arcade and Genesis games will have online co-op, and all titles will feature widescreen borders, save states, rewinding, and more.

The Limited Edition of TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection contains the following:

  • Physical copy of the game with original box design by Kevin Eastman
  • Cloth poster featuring Kevin Eastman’s adaptation of TMNT: Turtles in Time (16” by 24”)
  • Multi-layer acrylic diorama of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michaelangelo (4.5” by 5”)
  • Enamel pin set of five classic designs – The Technodrome, Turtle Blimp, Party Wagon, Shredder and Krang
  • Set of 12 translucent comic style character trading cards based on TMNT: Tournament Fighters
  • Full color artbook with 180 pages featuring a chapter dedicated to each of the 13 games in the compilation (5.5” by 8”)

Kevin Eastman’s artwork is always welcome, and the book certainly sounds rad. However, online reactions to the limited edition include widespread criticism of the price-to-value ratio of the $149.99 limited edition. We’ll see how things shake out when the game hits stores.

TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection will launch both physically and digitally on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch sometime this year. The regular edition is set to cost $39.99. The Limited Edition (for any of the three platforms) can be preordered for $149.99 at Best Buy and Target. Amazon also has a listing but isn’t accepting preorders at the time of this writing.
