Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Announced

By Mark Delaney, 5 years ago
One of the games on this year's XBLA Summer of Arcade lineup is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Don't confuse that pizza-infused beat 'em up with this one. Coming to retail stores is the simply-titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, similarly based on the popular Nickelodeon cartoon that's soon premiering its second season.

The game will feature four-player local, drop-in/drop-out co-op so Donnie, Mikey, Raph, and Leo can all join in together. The side-scrolling beat 'em up is meant to tell an original story that follows the half-shelled heroes between seasons one and two of the series.

A reveal trailer and a trio of screens were released alongside the announcement.
