A new TMNT game aims to spark nostalgia through cel-shading
After a few weeks of leaks, Activision and PlatinumGames have finally announced a new TMNT game. The two companies 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 new, 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 and digital release on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC via Steam.
