Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled is a 2009 remake of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time video game, released for the 25th Anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. It is based on the 1991 arcade game with the same name.

The remake was released for the Xbox 360 on 5 August 2009[1] and for the Playstation 3 on 1 October the same year.[2]

The 2009 game features new graphics and sounds. The graphics were remade completely in 3D, with players now moving in and out of a true 3D camera.[3] The opening and closing cinematics were remade with a stylized 2D look. The vocal quips of the arcade version return, re-recorded by the cast of the 2003 cartoon. The music was also re-done for every stage.[4] Other than the graphics being fleshed out in 3D, voice acting from the 2003 series cast, and completely new music, other subtle differences were added, including 8 direction attacking and modified boss patterns.

Re-Shelled was based on the original arcade machine, rather than the SNES version. The extra stages and enemy characters from the earlier home version were excluded. The gameplay remained similar, except that players could now attack in eight directions. The game could also be played online with up to four players. This version also featured a Survival mode, Quickplay mode, multiple difficulties and Achievements/Trophy support.[4]

Due to an expired license, the game was removed from Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network in North America, on June 30, 2011.[5]
