Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a third-person hack-and-slash game in which our heroes in a half-shell must fend off the mutants and robots created by Baxter Stockman – remember him from the cartoons? He was the guy who mutated into a fly! Nice.
Based around the upcoming movie, players will have the ability to switch between all four of the main characters – Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael – at any point, being able to use their different abilities tailored around their personalities.
As players progress through the game they will gain in levels, unlocking new abilities and stat points. Raw materials can also be collected which can be crafted into new weaponry when returning to the Turtle’s lair.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is being developed by Magic Pockets and published by Activision. The game is due to arrive around the same time as the new movie of the same name is released in cinemas on 8 August in the US. The movie will hit UK cinemas on 17 October.
