A port of the arcade game with some bosses changed around and a whole extra level added, plus time trial and versus modes.

The definitive TMNT title? You decide.

Regional Differences

Title Screen

The US version was released as "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV"; the European version changed "Ninja" to "Hero" (and retained the Roman numeral "IV", even though the third game had not been released at that point). The Japanese version removed the "IV" and replaced the stone "TURTLES IN TIME" text with more cartoony lettering, and added flickery after-images behind the text as it flies onto the screen.

Scene Select

US Japan

In the US version, the scene select can only be activated by entering the Game Genie code 26C4-640F and selecting a mode.

The Japanese version made the scene select more presentable (but removed the name of the selected scene), and tied it to a button code: enter Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, L, R on the second controller at the title screen, and then start the game. If the demo starts by this point, the code must be entered again.

Boss Text

In the Japanese version, the majority of the bosses will say short phrases after you beat them. Only Super Krang has dialogue in the English versions.

Cacti speak Japanese.

  • In the Japanese version, the maximum number of lives selectable in the options menu was reduced from 7 to 3, and the maximum number of continues was reduced from 5 to 3. Continues are also not tied to the difficulty level as they are in the international versions.
