The lights are on
Activision and Nickelodeon have announced that a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video games based om the current animated television show is coming to Xbox 360, Wii, and 3DS.
The game will be a side-scrolling action game with up to four player drop-in, drop-out co-op play. Players will be able to upgrade the turtles and use secondary items. The game will be available on October 22 on all three announced platforms.
Our TakeIt's slightly confusing to see another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game coming this year, from the same publisher no less. The first game, which is coming this summer, is a 3D brawler with a realistic art style. This one will be visually distinguishable as it is based on the animated show, but I am sure some players out there will be confused that two different Ninja Turtles games will have released within a matter of months.

It was bound to happen. I hope it's good.
Crazy question why is this not on PS3
I welcome this news as we have a BIG fan of the show in our house. I was actually very bummed when it was clear that Out of the Shadows wasn't adapting the show's style because it's one of the things that makes it great. I worry this is a quickie though and will lack polish and care but would like to stay optimistic.
I wish they would have put all their resources into making a killer extension of the show across all platforms. This is looking scattershot - especially when you toss in the iOS game (also disappointing with it's paywalls and difficulty).

I dunno, games based of shows are usually pretty terrible. However there are some good ones out there, like TMNT IV Turtles in Time, and this is a really good show, so....maybe?
"Side Scroller" - I'm down.
The other one looks cool, but this sounds like it's New Super Turtle Bros.
Really confused by the choice of platforms it will release on.
God the new ninja turtles look worse than something mike bay would spit out.
What the hell is this crap?
Well my son likes the show, and he's 5..this will probably be the game we'll get.
