TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan Video Game Coming Soon




At the beginning of the month, rumors spread that Platinum Games was working on a new TMNT title. Those rumors have gained traction as Twitter user @lifelower has discovered Xbox One cover art for this new game, titles "TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan."

This cover art is immediately recognizable as being by Mateus Santolouco, who has done considerable work on IDW's ongoing TMNT title. This suggests that the title will be based on the TMNT comic book series, which is quite exciting for both comic book fans and video game fans.

While Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan has yet to be officially announced, ratings information indicates that it will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

"TMNT: Out of the Shadows" Trailer Hits the Web



It's here! The first trailer for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" is now available in full HD glory!

New Images from "TMNT: Out of the Shadows"



Yesterday, a short teaser video promised that we'd get the first TMNT 2 trailer today. But after the full two-and-a-half-minute trailer managed to leak, Paramount went to work sending out promotional images as well as the trailer (check the top post for that!).

The biggest news from this reveal is the title "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows," which is a change from the working title "Half Shell."

Promotional images show us the four Turtles (with new garb and gear), April O'Neil (Megan Fox) with Casey Jones (Stephen Amell), and Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly).




Here are a bunch of marketing words:
“TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS” is the sequel to the 2014 hit film “TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.” The film is based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman and is directed by David Green (“EARTH TO ECHO”). Michael Bay (the “TRANSFORMERS franchise) returns to produce alongside his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (“ TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES”), with Galen Walker and Scott Mednick (“TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES”) also producing. 
Also returning for the sequel is Megan Fox (“TRANSFORMERS”) as April O’Neil, Will Arnett (“Arrested Development”) as Vernon Fenwick and the Turtles: Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Pete Ploszek at Leonardo, and Jeremy Howard as Donatello. Rounding out the cast is Stephen Amell (“Arrow,”) as Casey Jones, Tyler Perry ("GONE GIRL", the "MADEA" franchise) as Baxter Stockman, Academy Award nominated actress Laura Linney (“The Big C”, “LOVE ACTUALLY”) as Chief Rebecca Vincent, Brian Tee (“JURASSIC WORLD”) as Shredder, WWE World Heavy Weight Champion Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly as Rocksteady and Gary Anthony Williams (“THE INTERNSHIP”) as Bebop.
And some Wanted posters featuring Bebop and Rocksteady.

"TMNT 2: Half Shell" Trailer Rumored to be in Front of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"




In a video posted to Facebook, Stephen Amell (Casey Jones) seems to have confirmed that we will see the first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Half Shell before the biggest movie of the year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Although he doesn't name the movie (Star Wars) by name, it does qualify as a "relatively big movie" that comes out this month.

This brief clip is embedded below. You can also see the full video on Facebook (skip to 11:08).

TMNT Video Game News



It's been awhile since the TMNT have made a mark in the video game world, but this week there are two tidbits to report.

Tidbit 1:
PC Gamer is reporting that development studio Platinum Games has a TMNT title in the works, as it has happened to cross the Australian Classification Board website. No details on it yet, but keep watch for updates as information becomes available.

Tidbit 2:
If you're playing Tony Hawk 5, Activision has released some DLC that includes the TMNT as playable characters. The tie-in seems a bit random, but Activision is Nickelodeon's video game distribution partner for TMNT titles.
