Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time is the fourth video game in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game series, and a port of the second Ninja Turtles arcade game. In this game, Shredder and Krang steal the Statue of Liberty, prompting the Ninja Turtles to come after it. But in their attempt to save the statue, however, Shredder sends the Turtles back in time to the age of the dinosaurs, and now the Turtles must fight their way back to the present.
The game was released for the Super Nintendo. Like the second and third games, as well as the arcade game, the game is a beat 'em up.
A "Re-Shelled" remake of the game was released to Xbox Live Arcade in 2009. However, due to the rights expiring and Nickelodeon's exclusive purchase of the Ninja Turtles franchise, that game has since been delisted along with the XLA re-release of the original arcade game.
- Turtles in Time was awarded "Favorite Video Game" at the 1993 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.
The third Ninja Turtles film features the Turtles traveling to ancient Japan. After the success of this game, the film was unofficially subtitled "Turtles in Time".
