Depending on how things go, there could be a chance of seeing TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge DLC. In an IGN interview with Tribute Games Narrative Designer Yannick Belzil, it initially seemed like there would be no alternate costumes. The suggestion seemed that the developer would prefer to make another playable character. However, after the fact Dotemu CEO and Executive Producer Cyrille Imbert took to Twitter to confirm an add-on wouldn’t be impossible. [Thanks, PC Invasion!]
Here’s Imbert’s statement. It highlighted that whether or not TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge DLC would appear would depend on how well the game performs.
Some clarification here: There won’t be alternative costumes at launch and we don’t have DLC plans so far, but we never said “never” It will depend on many factors like the game’s reception and the ideas/feedback that the awesome community will send us. https://t.co/l51aqNmYKI

It wouldn’t be unheard of for a Dotemu game to receive DLC after launch. For example, Streets of Rage 4 ended up eventually getting a Mr. X Nightmare add-on. That made Ethel, Max, and Shiva playable and introduced a Survival mode.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge will come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 16, 2022. Siliconera’s review is live now.
