I really like a online game crossover as a lot as the following particular person, and preventing video games are an ideal platform for absurd matchups. Sadly, at $15 every, the value of latest Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello costumes in Road Fighter 6 is giving loads of gamers sticker shock.

Introduced throughout final weekend’s EVO 2023 preventing sport event, the TMNT-themed cosmetics, which apply to the participant’s customized avatar, are completely timed to money in on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem film hype. Or at the least attempt to. The 4 turtle skins arrived within the sport’s Battle Hub on August 8 costing 750 Fighter Cash apiece. That’s a massive bounce over the 50 cash wanted to unlock every of the primary forged’s alternate costumes.

Fighter Cash are Road Fighter 6‘s premium foreign money you purchase with real-world cash, however you possibly can solely purchase it in sure increments. For instance, to get 750 cash you’d have to pay $12 for 610 cash after which $5 for an extra 250 cash. That would go away you with sufficient to purchase the Leonardo costume and have 110 fighter cash left over. Nevertheless, when you purchase 2750 cash for $50, and one other 250 cash for $5, you’ll have the precise quantity it’s essential purchase all 4 costumes with not one of the non-refundable tokens left over.

There’s nothing precisely new about any of this for individuals who have been coping with live-service microtransaction economies at any level over the previous 5 years, nevertheless it nonetheless sucks. Much more so as a result of it’s the god rattling Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Every character is successfully only a coloration swap for the bandana and belt. “It’s whale bait,” wrote one commenter on a Road Fighter 6 subreddit debate in regards to the topic.

The excessive worth tags are sadly on par with these for brand spanking new skins in video games like Fortnite and Overwatch 2, although each of these video games are free-to-play. And they’re nonetheless cheaper than a single set of the freshest horse armor in Diablo IV. In case you love the Turtles and plan to play Road Fighter 6 for tons of of hours within the years to come back, you’ll nonetheless get your cash’s value, in a method. After all, you might additionally purchase a complete different preventing sport with that $60, or a dozen basic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video games with money left over for a pepperoni pizza.

Cowabunga, dude? Not at these costs.
