Turrican Rebirth is in the works!
Turrican Rebirth story on Destructoid.

YAY! It seems a brand new Turrican game was announced within the pages of the German version of Retro Gamer Magazine. Almost nothing is known at this time, but its still hard not to be at least a little excited.

Important take away from the article: "the game will be proper 2D." Hand drawn, HD Turrican? Yes please.
I have been quite excited too when I read that very article in the German Retro Gamer. But put in mind that Julian Eggebrecht, the guy quoted in the article and former producer for the Amiga, SNES and Genesis versions, only said he could imagine such a game under current circumstances (like easier programming or funding for video games). The plans for "Rebirth" are therefore quite rough, and I wouldn't be surprised if the project was suddenly cancelled like then with Turrican 3D.

However, he and his team also talked with the developers from Black Forest Games, the company behind Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams. This could be quite interesting, although I can't really imagine they would actually use complete 2D sprites and graphics for a new Turrican game. Eggebrecht said that "he imagines the game to be retro-like, but with modern looks". This can mean anything, take a look at Twisted Dreams for example (but that's quite a good title by the way).
Hmm, hopefully they put it up on Kickstarter then. I'm sure legions of Turrican fans would gladly fund a new entry. Giana Sister: Twisted Dreams was funded by Kickstarter and clearly that all went very well. I haven't played it yet, but I'm looking forward to the XBLA version (my current PC is way too old for new games).
Yes Chris huelsbeck's Turrican sountrack anthology did superbly well on Kickstarter. so great idea Mojo Thumbs Up

Really though we already have a new Turrican game in proper 2D - Gunlord Smile

In all seriousness proper 2D games are a hell of a lot of work these days. Especially because people now expect higher standards of animation so thats a lot of work - all those extra frames to be handdrawn. Also generally most 2d games dont sell well enough to justify the added production costs, but i guess Turrican would...
