It has been a while since we’ve had a TMNT game that was worth talking about. Oh, there have been many, many games that have come out under the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles banner. Critically, the best that has been said about them is that they were mediocre. So here comes Platinum Games, developer of crazy action titles like Bayonetta.
I don’t think I’ve played a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game since arcades were a thing. I kept up with the TMNT cartoons, though. The cartoons have had their ups and downs as well. The latest show, which currently airs on Nick, has been the best series has been in a long time. The game is not based on the cartoon (I really wish it was) but I am as looking forward to playing this game as I am looking forward to watching the next episode of the TMNT cartoon. Mutants in Manhattan has its own look. Its familiar, yet the art design goes in a unique direction. I’ll be keeping an eye out for this TMNT game, and I am hoping so hard that it delivers on the promise given in this footage.
