Introducing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Dangers of the Ooze
Activision has announced a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game will be out later this year. Called Dangers of the Ooze, the game is to put the heros in a half-shell into a side-scrolling action adventure set between season 2 and season 3 of Nickelodeon’s popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated show.
New locations allies and threats are to be brought to the game, which according to announcement blurb, “quickly heats up as Shredder, Tiger Claw and a new army of mutants threaten the streets of New York, forcing Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo to take action into their own hands.”
The announcement goes on to reveal some of the gameplay details:
“The game’s distinguishing feature is its vast, interconnected, non-linear game world, which rewards exploration and creative thinking. Powers, upgrades and equipment scattered across New York and Dimension X opens up new environments to traverse, secrets to discover and bosses to battle.
“All four Turtles can be swapped between freely throughout the adventure and each has its own unique rhythm, with specialised stats, strengths and skills. Combat is fast-paced, emphasising the gang’s martial arts prowess through attack and item combos, counters and finishers but also provides tools for stealth-based approaches to avoid or tackle enemies.”
