Have you been feeling a distinct lack of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in your videogame diet lately?
It seems as though Activision and Nickelodeon also want to add a little turtle soup to your daily sustenance and have announced a multi-year game development and publishing deal that will see those mighty hero turtles showing up in your interactive entertainment in the future.
Senior Vice President of Entertainment Products at Nickelodeon Consumer Products, Sherice Torres said of the deal:
“Activision is a leader in the gaming industry and we are honoured to have them as the global videogame partner for our new hit series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
“We are confident that these upcoming games will take gamers through interactive environments and action-packed adventures that truly capture the essence, tone and exciting elements of the Turtles.”
Activision’s games will be inspired by the new CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, a show that premiered in the UK and Ireland on October 1st in 2012, and is said to air regularly on Saturdays at 9:30am on Nickelodeon, and is described thus:
“Funnier and with more ninjutsu than ever before, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles explores the companionship of four teenage brothers learning to rely on themselves and one another as they unravel the mystery of their existence and grow to become the heroes in a half-shell that they are destined to be.”
Is this good news for Teenage Turtle fans? Which era of the Turtles would you have preferred the upcoming games to be based on, or is the new CG version of the franchise a good start?
