After leaks upon leaks, we finally have the official trailer of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, a new game from Platinum Games. The first leak of the game was caused by the Australian Classifications Board, which was quickly followed by an achievement list. The game’s existence was finally revealed by Platinum Games today with their tease of the “official leak” coming tomorrow. In what seems to be like a trend, Xbox.com has released the trailer early.
The trailer for Mutants in Manhattan has revealed a bit of the story as well as some of the enemies and boss fights that you can expect from this game. We hear Shredder’s narration as he talks about going public with the Foot Clan, meaning it must be quite early in the Turtles timeline. We see the new look for Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael going back to their roots and only having different weapons and colored bandannas. We also get a good look at Bebop, Rocksteady, and Armageddon, and even a short peek at what seems to be an Armageddon boss fight.
Platinum Games sticks to what has been working for them as of late, maintaining not only the cell shaded art style but also the brawler style combat seen in Transformers: Devastation and The Legend of Korra. Some extra details about the game released on Xbox.com is that there will be a four player online co-op mode and that the original story has been written by IDW Comic’s TMNT author, Tom Waltx.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan will be releasing for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC in Summer 2016.
Removed the low quality leaked video and replaced it with the trailer from Activision’s official YouTube.
What do you think of the look of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game? Are you looking forward to teaming up with up to three friends in this brawler? Are you also a bit sorry for the marketing department of Platinum Games?
