TMNT Mutants in Manhattan Preview

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan was announced back in January. This announcement came as a surprise to very few people after the number of rumors that had been floating around prior to the reveal. Published by Activision and being developed by Platinum Games TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan will follow our favorite turtles Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo in their first console outing since 2014.

In Mutants in Manhattan you will get to encounter some of the turtles most well known villains including Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady, and General Krang. A lot of these characters might be familiar to fans of the turtles and those who would read the comics or watched the old TV shows. There will also the introduction of the ninja Karai, mutant-alien bat Wingnut, and a fellow mutant turtle called Slash. In traditional Platinum Games style it will be an energetic, fast-paced, team-based brawler with online co-op up with up to three of your friends. Each turtle will have their own play style and individual combat skills tailored to their weapon. 

A new trailer has been released showing off plenty of gameplay to give people a better sense of how the game will play. In this trailer we get to see the turtles with their master Splinter as well as plenty of footage of the turtles kicking some mutant/alien ass. This trailer gives us a pretty good look at all of the new characters that are being introduced in Mutants in Manhattan. If you want to check out the trailer for yourself though it is right below:
