Heroes on a half shell! TMNT game coming in the fall
Activision is working on a brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game, set to come out in the fall. The game is set between the second and third seasons of the popular Nick show and is a side-scrolling action-adventure video game. Blending classic 2D fighting and platforming gameplay with the 3D art direction of the TV series, this new title from developer WayForward Technologies will launch for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Sony’s PlayStation3 computer entertainment system and Nintendo 3DS hand-held system later this year.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze brings together new locations, allies and threats! The game quickly heats up as Shredder, Tiger Claw and a new army of mutants threaten the streets of New York, forcing Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo to take action into their own hands. The game’s distinguishing feature is its vast, interconnected, non-linear game world, which rewards exploration and creative thinking. Powers, upgrades and equipment scattered across New York and Dimension X opens up new environments to traverse, secrets to discover and bosses to battle.
All four Turtles can be swapped between freely throughout the adventure, and each has his own unique rhythm, with specialized stats, strengths and skills. Combat is fast-paced, emphasizing the gang’s martial arts prowess through attack and item combos, counters and finishers, but also provides tools for stealth-based approaches to avoid or tackle enemies.
