What was one of the best parts about growing up in the late 80s/early 90s? If you said Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle video games, then you should either go help people with your freaky powers of clairvoyance or you read the title very well before clicking on this article. Either way, we’re here now together to reminisce about the immersive anthropomorphic reptilian adventures that shaped our childhoods and revel in news about a new forthcoming game. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arguably had some of the most enjoyable games during that era, the original NES game, Turtles in Time, The Hyper Stone Heist, The Manhattan Project, where the Turtles aided in the development of the first atomic bombs. Today, there is some fantastic news for fans of Turtle games.
This information comes from a recent posting from the Australian ratings board, according to GamesRadar. The title given for the game is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan and is being developed by Platinum Games for Activision. Platinum Games has previously developed Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and Transformers: Devastation, among others. Mutants in Manhattan received a rating of M for mature from the board, which is loosely comparable to a PG-13 rating for movies. It received this rating for “violence and online interactivity.” Don’t expect lots of gore and brutality, though; the violence was only designated as a “moderate impact by the ratings board. The online interactivity probably has a lot to do with the rating, because we all know there are no guarantees when dealing with the kind of unsavory characters that inhabit the internet.
Not much is known about the game beyond that, although it is rumored that it will receive a wide release on multiple platforms, including Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and PC. Will the Mutants in Manhattan give us classic bad guys like Bebop and Rocksteady? Will we get to swat Baxter, punch Krang’s stomach-brain face, or battle the Turtles’ ultimate arch-nemesis Vanilla Ice? We’ll have to wait and see, but NerdBastards will obviously keep you updated as soon as any new information surfaces.
