A remake of the arcade version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (new levels from the SNES port are not included), using 3-D graphics, new music, and new effects. Up to four players (one for each Turtle) can play through the levels in co-op, online or locally.
After being zapped into the past by their nemesis, Shredder, the Turtles must fight through waves of Foot Soldiers inhabiting historical side-scrolling stages. Each stage ends with a boss fight against a villain from the show. Only one button is used to attack, and triggers a single combo for each Turtle. A special move button can also be used to attack multiple enemies with one powerful move. Each Turtle has their own signature weapon, and a different set of stat-based strengths and weaknesses.
Turtles in Time Re-Shelled was originally set to cost 1200 Microsoft points, but the price was dropped to 800 points just four days before its release - presumably in response to criticism about the price of Microsoft's "Summer of Arcade" lineup.
