News: Heroes in a half-shell! Turtle power!
With the new CGI movie less than three months away, Ubisoft has laid down the first details on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. It will be released on March 13 (10 days ahead of the movie) and it will be available on the DS, GBA, GameCube, PC, PS2, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360.
The game is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal and will follow the Prince of Persia template of acrobatic platforming and fighting.
?The TMNT movie is all about the emotions associated with family and teenage angst,? said Nick Harper, creative director of the TMNT game at Ubisoft's Montreal development studio. ?We've taken that philosophy and turned it into gameplay mechanics that will be fun and challenging. The direction for the all new TMNT movie and game is a darker, more realistic Turtle experience. Gamers will embody all four Turtles from the big screen to engage in over-the-top action sequences and intense ninja combat. We think this game will appeal to kids, teens and adults alike.?
All four Turtles will be playable along with these gameplay features:
Intense Ninja Fighting: Harness the power of Ninjitsu and become a master of combat. Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are playable and each have unique acrobatic moves, weapons and combat skills, such as Michelangelo's fast nunchuck face slap and Raphael's powerful Sai throw.
Unique Acrobatic Navigation: The Turtles jump from rooftop to rooftop, scale tall buildings, dive into sewers and race through every corner of the city to confront their enemies.
Powerful Tag-Team Moves: Together the Turtles can team up to reach locations unattainable alone, or defeat the enemy.
Diverse Enemies and Bosses: Characters from the movie and the original comic book series ? including the Purple Dragon Street Gang and the infamous Foot Clan ? and a whole new group of enemies creep out of the shadows to face the Turtles.
