Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Rise Out of the Shadows this Summer


Cowabunga, dude!

Man, it has been too long since I’ve had a reason to say that. It’s been what, three or four years since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles last appeared in a video game? Well, Turtle Power is finally back as Activision and Red Fly Studio today announce Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, a 3D brawler inspired by the modern Nickelodeon animated series.


Out of the Shadows will be released this summer as a digital download via Steam, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Players will do battle against the Foot Clan across levels set in New York City as hyper-realistic, 3D-style representations of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael. The game will support online co-op up to four players (well, duh!), skill-based combat, and in-depth character development.


A lot of these details still need to be fully explained, but for now a few screenshots and a brief announcement trailer will have to do.
