I have been trying to find out if it's even possible but what I'm trying to do is get a Ninja Turtles game on my Sega Game Gear. I figured with how old Game Gear is that someone would have somehow ported one of the Game Boy Ninja Turtles games over to a Game Gear ROM by now but I have not been able to find anything. I asked a few other sites about the prospect of porting one of those games to the Game Gear and they stated that it would take hundreds of hours by someone who truly understood the coding on both systems. In other words... not happening.
That brought me to my second idea. I saw that someone had created a Genesis mod for Streets of Rage 2 to allow the Ninja Turtles as playable characters. Would it be possible to alter the sprites on Streets of Rage 2 for Game Gear to allow the player to be the Ninja Turtles? This seems like it would be the easier option but still difficult as there are no sprites to just transfer over. At best, the Game Boy sprites could be used but they would have to be completely redrawn and colored in.
As an added difficulty, if this was at all possible, how would one go about getting the ROM onto a Game Gear cartridge in order to play it on the system itself?
I have had my Game Gear for the last 27 years and it's my favorite retro system. The one glaring series missing from its library is the Ninja Turtles due to Konami having the rights at the time and being partnered up with Nintendo for most of that generation. I would love to see this happen, but not having any coding skills, I'm not sure if this could ever become a reality.
You guys are my last hope on the matter. What are your thoughts?
