TMNT-TiM-MainThis summer Activision, Nickelodeon, and Platinum Games will be launching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, a fast-paced, team-based brawler on XBox One, XBox 360, PS3, PS4, and Windows PC via Steam.

After watching the announcement trailer, I am ecstatic about this game. Unsurprisingly, it has the same feel as Activision and Platinum Games’ recent Transformers: Devastation and appeals to me for all the same reasons.

TMNT-TiM-TeamThe look and feel harken back to not only the old cartoon, but, somehow, also to the old Eastman and Laird comics at the same time. The soundtrack, voice acting, and story all seem spot on as well from what I can gather from the trailer and screenshots. The original story for the game is from the author of IDW’s ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, Tom Waltz. While Transformers were my absolute favorite as a kid, TMNT was a close second, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the game to relive some my childhood.

TMNT-TiM-SharkTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan will be an online co-op game but will also, thankfully, feature a single-player campaign. While I have nothing against online co-op games, I feel that every game should have a single player campaign as well for those of us who can’t make game nights due to parental responsibilities.

  1. I’m really excited about this game too, but very disappointed in the lack of a local co-op option. My kids and I have worn out our thumbs with Turtles in Time and Turtles 3 on the SNES and NES, respectively, and I was hoping this would be the awesome Turtles game I’ve been waiting over 20 years for, but sadly, we won’t be able to bash the Foot Clan together. Turtles games should always have at least 2 player local co-op.
