Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle game confirmed
It was confirmed today that Konami has received worldwide rights from 4Kids Entertainment and Mirage Lecensing to develop games based on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series. The show will debut on Fox early next year, as we originally heard about this information a few months ago. However, it's always nice to obtain a confirmation, and when it involves the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, every piece of information is important.
"We're thrilled to partner with Konami to produce video games based on the all-new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series," said Gary Richardson, CEO of Mirage. "With Konami back as video game publisher and Playmates Toys continuing as master toy licensee, we're excited to be working with the team that helped Mirage create the original success of the franchise. We can't wait to see samples of the new Konami TMNT video game on the big screen at
E3 in May of 2003."
Those of you who never got to experience the amazing quality of both an animated series or videogames based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are in for a treat. In the words of Vanilla Ice, "Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go!!"
