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 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.

"Ninja Turtles" Movie Tie-In Game Announced for Nintendo 3DS

Activision has announced a tie-in game for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. While the movie has a release date of August 8, the game just has a general release date of "August."

Nintendo Life reports:
[The game] will take the form of a third-person action game that will let players switch between the four turtles at any time. Each turtle possesses his own set of stats and skills, with Raphael, as a given example, centering on strength and Michelangelo focusing more on speed. Classic foes will show up as fodder to face off against, including the Foot Clan and Baxter Stockman's scientific abominations.

Interestingly, one of the released screenshots features Slash, obviously influenced by the character's appearance in the Nickelodeon cartoon. It seems likely that despite an obvious attempt to emulate the appearance of the movie, the game might not actually have much in common with it.

TMNT: Out of the Shadows Patch Released for Steam Players

A patch has been released for the Steam version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. After its debut last month, players complained of various bugs that occurred during game play. This patch is hopefully a fix for most of those bugs. The Out of the Shadows team notes, "This is a fairly large update, so make sure to give it time to fully download. You can track the progress within Steam by navigating to Library/Downloads."

The PS3 version of the game, originally scheduled for September 24, has been delayed until an undetermined date, presumably to address the same problems players faced with the Steam and Xbox versions of the game.

"TMNT: Out of the Shadows" Video Game Announced

Activision has officially announced their first TMNT video game title, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Our of the Shadows." And what a curious entry into the TMNT video game library this is. Check out the first trailer:

As of right now, the game will only be available as a download from Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, and Stream on PCs. Gameplay will feature 4-player online co-op as the Turtles fight the Foot Clan through New York City.

"Out of the Shadows" is supposedly "inspired by" the Nickelodeon cartoon series, but it obviously doesn't take its visual cues from the series. No, instead of using the awesome designs from that series, they've opted to design the Turtles to look like horrible, badly-proportioned fan art. I can appreciate them wanting to go for a more realistic look than the cartoon series has to offer - that allows them to appeal to a broader, older audience - but these Turtles look like crap.

I remember when Nickelodeon first bought the TMNT and my biggest fear was that they would totally reinvent the characters so that they didn't at all resemble the Turtles that I had adored for 20 years. Then when we got the first look at the designs for the CGI cartoon series, I was incredibly relieved. And now that we've finally seen the series it's awesome and amazing. And the IDW comic book has been similarly impressive. All seemed to be good (with the looming possible exception of the upcoming movie). With all the good coming out of Nickelodeon, the sudden appearance of these craptacular Turtles is quite curious, indeed.

We'll just have to wait and see how this plays out.
