‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan’ launch trailer highlights combat

Overwatch is likely taking up the majority of your time Tuesday, and it is an awesome multiplayer shooter, but there’s another game coming out Tuesday that shouldn’t slip under your radar: PlatinumGames’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. A launch trailer has been released to celebrate the occasion, and it showcases the developer’s stylish, fast-paced combat.

“That meddling rat and his turtles are more trouble than we had anticipated,” a shadowy figure, who appears be Krang, says to Shredder. It’s clear that we need to handle this ourselves. Shall we begin?”

The art style and smoothness of the combat continue to impress us several months after the game was initially revealed. The trailer only offers more of that, with Michelangelo twirling through the air as he juggles an enemy before slamming him into the ground, and Raphael using a violent claw-like attack to deal damage to enemies all around him. Naturally, Donatello doesn’t get the love he deserves — he can do some serious damage too, you know!

While the beat-’em-up action looks fantastic, it wouldn’t be a PlatinumGames’ title without plenty of boss battles. “Mega Krang” looks like the star of the show in Mutants in Manhattan. The enormous robot projects an image of Krang as its head, and appears to function similarly to Andross from the Star Fox series.

“Sorry, Earthlings, but all your base are belong to us,” Michelangelo proclaims in a nod to the poorly translated arcade game Zero Wing. Hopefully, the fourth wall breaking and video game culture references are kept to a minimum; there needs to be enough room for all that peanut butter and pickle pizza that the TMNT love so much!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is out now for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. It features four-player co-op, so you can role play with your friends. Don’t act like you don’t know which turtle you’re going to pick.
