Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Game Announced by Activision

/ Jul 23rd, 2013 No Comments

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a new game based on the Nickelodeon animated series, is set to release Oct. 22 for Xbox 360, Wii and 3DS, Activision and Nickelodeon announced.

The side-scrolling beat ‘em up will feature locations, enemies, storylines and an animation style similar to the new CG-animated show on Nickelodeon. The game will be set in between the currently-running first season and the yet-to-be-aired second season of the cartoon.

In classic Ninja Turtles video game fashion, the new game will feature four-player, drop-in/drop-out co-op available both locally and online. However, Activision’s new title will allow players to upgrade Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo. The heroes in a half-shell will also be able to carry secondary items in addition to their own unique signature weapons.

Magic Pockets is handling development of the game. The developer previously worked on the DS version of Mini Ninjas along with several other mobile games.

The current version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series began last September. The show follows mutant turtles and their struggle against their nemesis Shredder. More than 24 million viewers watch the series every month.

No announcement has been made on the voice acting for the video game version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. However, it is safe to assume the cast of the show will lend their voices to the game. That means players might be able to get yet another taste of Nolan North,  the video game voice extraordinaire who also voices Kraang’s race of pink aliens on the show.

The game is the result of a three-game, multi-year deal made between Activision and Nickelodeon.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of Shadows is set to launch this summer. However, that game is set in a different universe than the Nickelodeon animated show. TMNT: Out of Shadows will be part of Xbox Live’s Summer of Arcade promotion when it launches Aug. 28.
