Developer Tribute Games announced today that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge has reached the 1 million sold milestone after just one week on sale.

Published by Dotemu, the beat-em-up debuted on June 16 for Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It takes its inspiration from the classic TMNT games of the arcades and 8-bit/16-bit days.

Reaching 1 million copies sold in such a short amount of time is a great sign for the game. Maybe I can dream that this will mean that Dotemu and Tribute can bring back some other classic licensed beat-em-ups from that era, like X-Men and The Simpsons.
