Cover art variants for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the Nintendo Entertainment System and Famicom.
Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello cause a kerfuffle in this fondly remembered NES action platformer. As with many games of the era, it’s tricky and often unfairly difficult. Nonetheless, if you’re of a particular age, the game has a certain magic that is hard to deny.
The European version is labelled as Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles, as was the animated series in the region. And as is so often the case, the Japanese box art is by far the best.
