Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello, along with April O'Neil and master Splinter are watching the news on TV when it is interrupted by Bebop, who announces the Foot has returned and is taking over the Statue of Liberty. The Turtles go to the Channel 6 building and find Bebop with the head of Krang's android body, but it is taken away while they were fighting Bebop. The team then fights Foot operatives and other adversaries while pursuing Krang, finding other parts of his body being reconstructed. Their chase leads them to Dimension X, where they fight their way through the destroyed Technodrome, until they eventually reach their enemy's lair in Dimension X and face Shredder and Krang in his new body. This is a decoy to get them away from New York while they are turning the Statue of Liberty into the Statue of Tyranny, a robot controlled by Krang. The Turtles return to New York and defeat Krang and Super Shredder.

After the battle, the heroes return to their lair and watch the news as the city is being restored but are disappointed to see that the credit goes to the Punk Frogs. That night the Turtles along with April, Splinter and Casey Jones celebrate their victory with pizza.

Released on August 31, 2023, was a DLC pack called Dimension Shellshock.[1] This pack includes new levels, Miyamoto Usagi and Karai as playable characters and color swap palates.[2]

On July 13, 2023 an additional trailer was released showcasing more features such as survival mode and being able to transform the selected character into a villain to be able to play as that villain such as Shredder, Bebop, and Rocksteady.[3]

On August 15, 2023, it was announced that Karai would also be added as a DLC character, and a new level was shown based around the original black and white of the Mirage comics and the release date for the DLC pack had been announced for August 31.[1]

The main feature of Dimension Shellshock is its Survival Mode, which features a story of its own and new opening and ending cutscenes. Survival Mode features the player traveling to different dimensions, each with their own unique appearance and setting. The player has to defeat enemies and bosses, and collect shards in order to form crystals in order to progress to the next dimension, ultimately culminating in a fight with a powered-up Super Shredder after five crystals are completed. The dimensions featured are as follows:

  • Edo - A dimension themed after feudal Japan. Hamato Koji, Ninjara, Chien Khan, Hothead, and Al'falqa make cameos in the stage backgrounds.
  • Mirage - A dimension resembling the pages of a black and white comic book, patterned after the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics by Mirage Studios. Mondo Gecko, Halfcourt, Jagwar, Ray Fillet, and Dreadmon make cameos in the stage backgrounds.
  • 8-Bit Battleground - A dimension resembling a retro video game, patterned after the numerous Konami-developed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Screwloose, Pizzaface, Ace Duck, Scumbug, Tattoo, Hallocat, Nocturno, and Nevermore make cameos in the stage backgrounds.
  • Omnichannel 6 - A futuristic dimension seemingly dominated by an extremely technologically advanced version of Channel 6. Cudley the Cowlick, Kerma, Fugitoid, and Armaggon make cameos in the stage backgrounds.
  • Dark Tomorrow - A post-apocalyptic dimension set in the ruins of what was once New York City. Stone busts of Super Shredder with burning eyes and Foot Clan emblems feature prominently throughout the dimension. Irma Langenstein, Zach, Mona Lisa, and Carter cameo in one of the stage backgrounds, teaming up to face off with Mutagen Man and Antrax.
  • The Void - A dimension set in an empty void where remnants of destroyed and castles act as the only terrain, serving as Super Shredder's base of operations. The dimension is only utilized for the Super Shredder boss fight; it does not feature any other rounds or enemies.


  • The opening FMV features a cover by Mike Patton for the classic theme song from the 1987 TV series, originally composed by Chuck Lorre.
  • In early footage of the game, Tiffany is seen reclining on a desk while Bebop flirts with her, before they both flee.[4] This was changed in the final release to the be the first instance of Bebop forcing Vernon to film him with a camera. Tiffany can still be seen in the game running in the crowd at the very beginning.
  • At Nickelodeon's instruction, April's Sandwich Attack was changed from being the same as the Turtles' (flying backward to strike with her backside),[5] as they said it was "off character".[6]
  • Rob Paulsen is the only original TMNT actor to not voice a second character, despite two of his previous roles being in the game (Wingnut and Tokka). In-game, he is credited as Slash, but this was in error, as he was voiced by Sean Gurnsey.
  • In addition to having in game cameos, the Punk Frogs' likeness appears throughout the game:
    • They appear on a vending machine for Pond Soda.
    • They have a graffiti tag with their group name in the sewers.
    • They have two cardboard cutouts of themselves at the mall which Napoleon will come out from behind when their knocked down.
    • They have multiple appearance throughout Coney Island stage.
      • They appeared on a concession tent
      • They have balloons that you can pop for mini game
      • They appear in the boss fight with Leatherhead throwing the player explosive cans and a pizza to replenish health.
    • Their last appearances are in the game ending, with Vernon giving them credit for defeating the Shredder, as well an after-credit scene if the player collects all cameos and collectibles.
