Cowabunga, dudes! Remember the halcyon days of arcade gaming circa 1991, when you and three friends embarked on a radical reptilian adventure through time and space in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time? Remember how good that pixelated pizza looked? Well, times have changed and graphics have improved, and now Activision and Red Fly Studio are back with a brand new 4-player co-op brawler, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, that is guaranteed to remember why you fell in love with the Heroes in a Half Shell in the first place, “Skipping Stones” notwithstanding. But before we go any further feast your eyes on the exclusive launch trailer, only on the Nerdist Channel:
Available today for XBLA and Steam (PC), Out of the Shadows offers up addictive, action-adventure gameplay in the vein of something Arkham City; That isn’t to say this is an open-world game, but rather how it controls and how the combat feels. Although the art style may evoke the TMNT Nickelodeon series, the game is definitely a love letter to older fans who have been feeling the Turtle Power since the Mirage Studios comic days. And if you don’t have three friends to keep you company, don’t worry — the story mode has all four turtles present at all times and makes switching on the fly a breeze. Keep your eyes peeled for our full review coming soon, and lest we ever forget, let’s take a gander at that one time that Raphael punched Hitler in the face. Cool, but rude indeed.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of Shadows is out now on XBLA and Steam, and comes to PSN on September 24th. What do you think of the game? Let us know in the comments below!
