The folks at Activision are reportedly working on a new game based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.
Instead of basing the latest title on the comic books, movies, or the old school afternoon cartoon, Activision is taking its inspiration from the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series on Nickelodeon. According to Shack News, a release date for the game has not been announced.
Nickelodeon Consumer Products Senior Vice President Sherice Torres said of the project:
“We are confident that these upcoming games will take gamers through interactive environments and action-packed adventures that truly capture the essence, tone and exciting elements of the Turtles.”
Cinema Blend reports that very few details about the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles title are available at the moment. However, Activision did state that it was aiming for a broad age group.
Activision Publishing Minneapolis Vice President Kurt Niederloh said:
“The fans of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ are unique in that they span generations and are very passionate. We respect this passion and look forward to working with Nickelodeon to create games that embody the spirit of the property.”
If all goes accordingly, then the new game should arrive on retail shelves at some point this summer.
In addition to getting a new video game, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise is scheduled to return to the big screen in the next few years. Inquisitr previously reported that Michael Bay will produce the upcoming flick for Paramount. However, the movie will be known only as Ninja Turtles when it finally arrives in theaters.
“Paramount marketing changed the name. They made the title simple. The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie. This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance.”
