The Turtles May Soon Return To Games
TMNT - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for all those under the age of 25 - gets me all nostalgic. You, too, right?
And if Activision really is planning to produce another title, I might be interested...well, provided it's a good old-fashioned side-scrolling beat-'em-up like previous entries.
This possibility is based on a bunch of pictures showing Playmates Toys, as reported at GameSpot. Among those pictures is the marketing plans for this line of toys, which includes "cross promotions with key licensees, including [comic publisher] IDW and Activision." IDW revealed its plan to produce TMNT comics last year but Activision hasn't made a peep about a new video game. Maybe that announcement will come soon.
The Turtles have been involved in gaming since the NES days and although their titles have never been masterpieces, they've often been plenty entertaining. I distinctly remember one particular iteration on the Gameboy called Fall of the Foot Clan, and I played the hell out of it. So we can always use a new TMNT, I say. Leonardo FTW!
