Watch Gameplay From the New 'TMNT' Video Game

Posted by k4tzm4n (38831 posts) - - Show Bio

I've always babbled about how I really want Rocksteady to develop a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. Their ability to create a fluid combat system and a stunning open world would be the perfect match. Instead, I was skeptical when I heard we'd get a downloadable game from Activision. But after watching this footage, I can say I'm honestly pumped for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.

IGN had the chance to check out some pre-alpha gameplay and it looks insanely fun. The combo system appears smooth and energetic and, according to the commentary, you'll constantly earn XP to unlock new combos and special moves. Check out the footage below.

I'm not a big Raphael fan, but the ability to powerbomb Foot ninjas looks ridiculously enjoyable. What do you think, Viners? Are you impressed or are are you going to pass on this one?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows will have four player co-op and come out this summer on Xbox Live, PSN and Steam.

looks like fun. Looks like it'll get old after a while. They are ninja's. I hope they do run around and climb on some shit. Still. promising so far.

Looks amazing and to be honest I still play a couple of minutes here and there on TMNT Turtles in Time on XBLA which is the best game ever!. Im very much looking forward to this game.

I grew up with the Turtles and I love the Nickelodeon style and all but Im not pleased what they did with Donny being all scrawny and goofy (missing a tooth? :/ LOL) I remembered him being the more bulky, husky type. I guess they had to make some changes.

Cowabunga! I love the use of the movie design for the Foot Clan. Black with the red headband and the bug-eye goggles. Best design on them yet. I also love how their bodies look like TURTLES. It may sound dumb, but that was a big problem with the 2000s cartoon and CGI movie. they were either too trapezoidal like bulky superheroes, or too skinny and long legged like frogs. But the heads. Oh god, what is wrong with their heads? they look so tiny and pointy, like pinheads.

look cool. donny and leo for me! but is it on the computer or is it for consoles?

#15 Posted by leokearon (1780 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks nice, but it looks very repetitive, it seems to be just the turles fighting crowds of enemies over and over again

Out in the summer on XBLA, PSN, and Steam. Looks cool. I may actually have to purchase this.

I hope this game does well, I don't want the owners of TMNT to think the turtles are a lost cause :(

You do realize they didn't invent cowabunga either, right?

Well, as of right now they've only showed off the basics of the combat system. I imagine rooftop jumping and such has to be a part of any TMNT game -- we just hopefully haven't seen it yet. Hopefully there's a lot to unlock with the XP. A game like this needs replay value.

I am sooo excited for this to come out, it looks awesome and I'm a huge TMNT fan. And it's also a downloadable release which means (well, hopefully) that it won't be 60 freakin dollars

Cowabunga was a common saying that was made well before the show even came out. It was even used in the 20s. It has no strong ties to any writing or media.

Ali G literally came up with Booyakasha. That is stealing.

There ya go -- the late 40's. It has been around for a long time and evolved past the show to a common phrase... that unfortunately died out.

Aren't these how Bay's turtles are going to look when they showed the character designs a few years back?

And am I the only one who's kind of looking forward to that movie?

I hope this game isn't wack like that TMNT one. :\

I can't wait for this to come out this summer but yesterday i was farting around on Google Chrome and I found the TMNT game Dark Horizons. It's a 2D platformer but it's pretty awesome. If you can find it I suggest downloading it.
