Platinum's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game Released


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan [official site], the latest from Bayonetta makers Platinum Games, is now out. I mention this not because I suffer from a crippling nostalgia which means I can only enjoy things from my youth, before I discovered anchovies are actually an acceptable pizza topping, but because Platinum can do great things even with licensed games. Metal Gear Rising, yeah? And Alec liked their Transformers game. So I'm certainly cooing cautiously at this. It's got co-op too.

Mutants in Manhattan is a... party-based brawler? All four of the turtles roll around together, duffing up bad guys with their own attacks and setting up for big combos with each other's abilities. You can switch between them as you please, or have pals join in with online co-op. Michaelangelo can make enemies dance, duuude.

It's not based on the new movies or cartoons or anything in particular, but cobbles together bits and pieces with a story by current Turtles comics writer Tom Waltz.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is £23.99/29,99€/$39.99 on Steam. Here's the launch trailer:

As for actual gameplay, that IGN mob looked at the first stage a while ago:
