Cowabunga, dude! The newest piece of the TMNT franchise rolls out today in the form of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, a new game now available on console and PC. Play
as Leonardo, Donatello, Michaelangelo, or Raphael and dish out some justice in the mean streets of the Big Apple.
Described as an “action” game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is a third-person, team-based game that can be played solo or via online cooperative play. Most likely, the best experience will come from playing with friends online. Team up and take down the no-good mutants, aliens and soldiers who mean to do evil in various parts of the city. Of course, the game also features some of the classic supervillains for fans: Shredder, Bebop, Krang (Mega Krang!), etc., as well as some well-worn references to modern(ish) jokes.
To make things bit more interesting, each playable turtle can be customized with different Ninjutsu moves and items to make them your own, and help you climb the global leader-boards in play. This, along with the original storyline and colorful cel-shaded graphics combine to make fans feel like they are playing in the TMNT universe, but not simply rehashing the episodes they’ve memorized to death.
Brought to us by Activision Publishing, Nickelodeon, and Platinum Games, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan aims to bring new and old fans alike together for a fresh view on the classic series. It is rated T (Teen) and available for Xbox 360/One, PlayStation 3/4, and PC via Steam.
