I’ve pontificated once or twice about my gaming prowess in the past, but these days my gaming is pretty much limited to 2048 on my phone. I have had very little desire to buy up the latest consoles over the years; I have no need for them and I care very little about my children’s enjoyment of life. But if nothing else, I am nostalgic, and the nostalgia came flooding in today.
This game was actually announced in March, but at the time no one knew what systems it would be available on. Well now I know it’ll be out on the Switch. Guess what? I grew up on Nintendo. I love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The TMNT Arcade game was legendary. The best birthday party I ever had was at Chuck E. Cheese when we just dumped quarters into the machine until we beat it. Now my dad has a tabletop arcade machine in the basement and the youth of the household get to enjoy it’s majesty like I did.
In conclusion, this reimagining looks incredible. I need it. I have decided to forgo my vacation and stay with my family and buy a Nintendo Switch instead. I still know some people.
