Could there have been a Ninja Turtles game for Nintendo 64?

When we think about classic games for the Nintendo Entertainment System along with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System we think about many game such as the Ninja Turtles series.  The Ninja Turtles series was very popular in the  80’s and early 90’s and the games that were made by Konami were very fun in general.   One of the better TMNT games that Konami had produced was the arcade title known as Turtles in Time which allowed up to four players on a single cabinet.  Even though, many people were satisfied with the fact Turtles in Time was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.  However, the Super Nintendo console had only allowed multiplayer gameplay which could only include two people.

If Konami wanted to make a 2D arcade style video game for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the Nintendo 64 or Gamecube were the perfect consoles to do so.  The thought of the Nintendo 64  not having a Ninja Turtles game was just at puzzling as the TMNT Gamecube title from 2003 having a two player co-op mode instead of four.  While the Ninja Turtles titles were better in 2D with colorful sprites and graphics Konami could have released a game similar to Turtles in Time for the Nintendo 64 or even Gamecube.  When it comes down to 2D gameplay with the inclusion of colorful sprites and graphics Konami could have definitely pulled it off especially since they did it with Mortal Kombat Trilogy during the mid 90’s.  Looking back at things down Konami had probably missed a chance on delivering an arcade quality Ninja Turtles game for the Nintendo 64 that could of allowed four player gameplay.
