Fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise have so far been disappointed by games carrying the TMNT name released after the SNES classic TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. Now Activision has announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows – a new, download-only “third-person brawler game” inspired by Nickelodeon’s TMNT TV show.
The game is being developed by Red Fly Studio and will be released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC via PSN, Xbox LIVE and Steam this summer (i.e. sometime between June 21st and September 21st).
Here’s more on TMNT: Out of the Shadows courtesy of Activision’s press release:
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is a third-person brawler game set in New York City, taking gamers through articulated, true-to-life environments filled with action-packed adventures as Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael. Featuring an original hyper-realistic 3D-style, gamers can experience four-player online co-op play while stomping out the Foot Clan and unleashing turtle torment on any foe that gets in their way.
“With an immersive world, deep character development, and an intuitive, skill-based combat system built around combo-driven action, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows puts ‘Turtle Power’ in players’ hands.”
Here’s the game’s teaser trailer and first batch of screens:
