HEROES IN A HALF SHELL! Ahhh, my childhood just hit me in the back of the head like a brick in a sock, and the reason is this very press release!
I imagine we all grew up watching and loving the antics of our 4 favourite mutated Testudines as they kicked Foot Clan ass all over the place. There have, of course, been multiple reboots and re-imaginings of the classic cartoon, but none (in my opinion at least) can come close to the original. The cel-shading used in this game lends it a look and feel of a cartoon, which I adore and think it’s perfect for a game based on a comic/cartoon series.
Also: with Armaggon, RockSteady, Beebop and a Rock Soldier making an appearance in the screenshots below, I’m really excited to see what other enemies you’ll get to fight. Maybe we’ll even see Yoshimitsu the Samurai Bunny come to lend our 4 heroes a hand!
Nickelodeon’s Half-shell Heroes Return for Four-Player Online Co-op Action This Summer
Activision Publishing, Inc. and PlatinumGames Inc. have joined forces to create Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Mutants in Manhattan, a third-person action game featuring New York’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 customised 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 release on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC.
