After rumors, the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle game officially revealed

Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go! If you’ve been waiting for something Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed that isn’t a lousy movie or macaroni and cheese, then Activision has some very good news for you. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is on its way, and it’s being developed by one of the best action studios in the industry.

“The Heroes in a Half Shell are taking back the streets of New York, and they’re doing it with the kind of style that only PlatinumGames can deliver,” Activision’s Josh Engen says in the official announcement. The Japanese action developer best known for Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising most recently worked with Activision on Transformers: Devastation last year.

Devastation drew visual inspiration from the classic Transformers television series, but according to Activision, this time around, PlatinumGames is drawing its inspiration from the Turtles’ comic book. This means sharper angles and dark, pencil-like detail mixed with the cheesy humor that has become such a staple of the series.

But as is made quite clear in the above trailer, this game’s combat is pure PlatinumGames. Attacks are brutal and quick, with plenty of particle effects, and it looks like there will be some moves that utilize all four turtles at once.

As someone who’s pretty indecisive, it’s also good news that Mutants in Manhattan allows you to switch between the Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael at any time, and the game will also support cooperative play. However, the language Activision is using suggests that this may be online-only co-op, so you and your buddy may have to order separate peanut butter and sardine pizzas.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan hits the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC this summer. Get your swords and headbands ready in advance.
