After about a week or two of leaks, Activision, Nickeldeon, and Platinum Games today officially announced that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC via Steam. The game will feature cell-shaded art as well as an original story by Tom Waltz, who also write for the comic.
Though the game is Rated T for Teen, I don’t see why younger fans of TMNT shouldn’t be able to play this. Yes it’s animated violence, but it’s based in fantasy so I don’t really have a problem with my younger kids checking this out when it comes out.
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Jan. 26, 2016 – Activision Publishing, Inc., Nickelodeon and PlatinumGames Inc. have joined forces to create Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Mutants in Manhattan, a third-person action game featuring New York City’s crime-fighting Heroes in a Half-Shell. Players will protect The Big Apple from aliens, mutants and the Foot Clan in a single-player campaign or partner with up to three friends in four-player online co-op. But be prepared – defeating Bebop, Rocksteady, Shredder and other iconic bosses won’t be easy.
PlatinumGames’ flair for stylish visuals and fluid combat are on full display in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. Fast-paced, team-based brawling will challenge gamers of all skill levels. Each Turtle has a distinctive combat play style and can be customized with a unique set of Ninjutsu moves, combat items and special bonuses.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan also features gorgeous, cel-shaded art design, with an original story from prolific author of IDW Publishing’s acclaimed ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, Tom Waltz.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is expected to arrive this summer as a retail and digital release on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC via Steam.
