Cowabunga! Seems Platinum Have A Ninja Turtles Game

Totally tubular!

PlatinumGames pleased our resident Transforman Alec with Transformers: Devastation, satisfying his twin passions of virtual murder and gushing over children's toys from the 1980s. Now it seems the studio behind Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Bayonetta may be tackling another '80s merchandising powerhouse next, going totally tubuluar with those radical Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Or so The Man says.

Ratings enthusiasts have spotted listings for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan going through the Australian and Brazilian classification boards, which between them say it's made by Platinum, published by Activision, and is coming to PC.

If The Man is to be believed (and he may be, FOR ONCE - don't think I'm not watching), this is a thing that's happening. And that's about all we know.

Maybe it's based on the old cartoon, from when you were young. Remember when you were young? Those were the days. The days when you were young. Or maybe it's based on newer animated series or connected to the new movies, as Activision released games based on both those over recent years. It is probably not based on the gory original comics, though Platinum do still have all that mutilation tech from Revengeance just sitting around, not mutilating anyone.

Transformers may have been a pretty good Platinum game, doing those Platinum fighting things, but their previous licensed game for Activision, The Legend of Korra, was a bit of a duffer. Who knows what this'll be?

Assuming The Man's not trying to pull the wool over our eyes. Yeah, I'm still watching.
