TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge brings the classic arcade action of TMNT: Turtles in Time and with it the online co-op feature for six players. In addition to the four turtles, April and Master Splinter, there is also another character that players can unlock in the game. Casey Jones, the vigilante in hockey mask, complete with his signature hockey stick, can be unlocked in-game. It’s also incredibly easy to pick up in-game and a bit time consuming.
Here’s how players can unlock a pretty powerful character in TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge.
How to unlock and play as Casey Jones in TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge
It’s incredibly easy to unlock Casey Jones in TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, and all players have to do is beat the game. However, this must be done in Story Mode, not Arcade Mode. While the Arcade mode is more challenging and may be a more enjoyable experience for that reason, the key is the story mode.
Fortunately, it doesn’t matter what difficulty players go through. Players can go to the online matches, find a party that is nearing the end and participate in that as well. There are 16 stages in the story mode and they are pretty long affairs. Each features a wide variety of Foot Clan ninjas, as well as robots, Rock Soldiers, and Triceraton troops.
After defeating Super Shredder at the end of stage 16, players can access Casey Jones in both story and arcade modes. Story mode should take a few hours at most to complete, but the replayability makes the game worth playing over and over again.
Going through all 16 stages is all that matters. Players are also not required to unlock the various achievements, trophies or challenges. If players wish, they can speed through the stages, skipping the VHS tapes, Stinky Bugs, and the various hidden cameos that appear in the game.
Casey Jones is an incredibly powerful character in the game and all of his stats are really really good. In addition to the hockey stick, his melee combo also includes his baseball bat and golf club.
Casey Jones Statistics
He is average or above average in all of his stats and is definitely worth unlocking in the game. Casey Jones is a vigilante in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, appearing in both the series and the original films as an ally to the turtles.
Over the course of the game, there are numerous cameos that appear in the background, although none of them are playable yet. This includes the Punk Frogs, the Neutronians, Vernon, Burne Thompson and Irma. At the time of writing, none of these are playable in-game, but this may change with future DLC drops or updates.
TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge was released on June 16, 2022 and features Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael as playable characters in addition to April O’Neil and Master Splinter. Players can use any of these to unlock Casey Jones so they can defeat the Foot Clan with stunning, deadly hockey stick attacks.
At the time of writing, Casey Jones is the only unlockable character in TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, but he’s definitely worth playing in the game. The other characters are playable at launch, but if fans want to wave hockey sticks at the foot, they’ll just have to beat the story mode.
