Even though it wasn’t announced officially, the fans of the Ninja Turtles worldwide can celebrate because images from the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game were leaked. Rumors of a new game based on the famous cartoon of the ‘80s started to appear right after Transformers: Devastation was launched. The game had really good reviews and the fact that it was created by Platinum Games, just like the new game would be, gave high hopes to the fans.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are four teenage turtles that are anthropomorphic and they were named after four Italian Renaissance artists( Donatello, Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo). They were trained by their rat sensei who is also anthropomorphic in the ninjutsu art. The fictional characters created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman, fight criminals, mutated creatures, evil overlords and alien invaders from their home in New York City. The franchise gained the most popularity at the end of 1980s and at the beginning of the 1990s.
If you really loved those old cartoons, you might be disappointed because the new Turtles game is not based on them. The idea of the game is inspired more from the new IDW comic books, than from the movies or cartoons. The noses and the eyes of the turtles are different in the game. The style of the game is very similar to the one of the Transformers: Devastation one.The game will also be an open world, like Devastation was, but only to a certain point. The box art of the game displays Krang, Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady and an unknown bear.
The first game that involved the Ninja Turtles was released in 1989 by Konami/Ultra. The game was available for PC and Wii. The next game was launched in 1991 and was called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. In 1992, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist game was created. Also, a trilogy was created for the Game Boy system. In the middle of the 1990s, the popularity of the Ninja Turtles started to decrease. The last game based on the loved characters was released in 2013 and was called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
Previous online leaks suggest that the new game will be called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan and that it will be available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. As the images from the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game were leaked, the launching of the game is imminent, but the creators are still quiet about it.
