The comic book franchise that solidified my desire to practice ninjutsu and invest in nunchakus is back with a new downloadable game to run alongside the newly resurrected series on Nickelodeon. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is slated to drop this summer as a digital download on Xbox Live, PSN and Steam.
The trailer and gameplay videos are below and so far, I’m not impressed. Visually the game appears to be too dark, the graphics are muddy and the turtles look a bit awkward. The Foot shows up in the videos but no signs of any of the other villains so it’ll be interesting to see who pops up.
Activision Publishing, Inc. today announced that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Out of the Shadows, a new, digital download-only video game inspired by Nickelodeon’s new hit animated series, will be available this summer. 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.
