Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection PS5 PS4 Online Turtles in Time

One of the best retro compilations of the year, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection, just got a ton cooler – with a patch enabling online co-op in the SNES edition of the iconic TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. The update also includes improvements to the title’s netcode across the board, which is always appreciated.

In fact, the meaty patch for PS5 and PS4 also adds customisable button mapping, fresh Game Boy screen filters, arcade stick support, and even a handful of new tips inside the in-game strategy guides. And developer Digital Extremes says it’s far from done: it promises a future update will add online co-op to the NES version of TMNT III: The Manhattan Project. Radical!
