    1. No. Turtles 1, 2, and 3 were also good.

      The 2003 game was pretty fun.

      Also, why is the first comment always negative?

    1. Great idea. Isn’t there PLENTY of TMNT characters (good guys and bad guys?) to make a Super Smash Bros type game? I think it’d be awesome.

  1. As long as they don’t repeat the mistakes of TMNT Smash-Up, I would love to see another Turtles game.
    Maybe if they made one that had more RPG elements…….

      1. The good old days…what? The figures in the picture above are only about a year old. They were released by Playmates to celebrate the 80’s cartoon version of the TMNT which had never had a proper toyline. Before that there wasn’t a link between the 80’s TMNT and the main toyline from Playmates. You said you had these toys, why did you get rid of them so soon?

  2. they should make the game, ubisoft hardly used it at all, maybe activision could make it like tmnt 3 on nes, ive bean wanting a new tmnt game, also a good one

  3. Activision’s gonna go two ways with this. Either they are gonna throw it to the side like Crash The Bandicoot. Or they will milk the franchise just like Call Of Duty

    1. definitely milk it TMNT is popular, and u know what activision does when they got a popular franchise rolling on MILK MILK MILK , they did to CoD , they did to skylanders, this will be the same

  4. Ooh, I have 2 of those ninja turrtles figures it shows. I’m hoping to get all 4 eventually.

    Anyways, why does publishers/developers keep switching with different franchises? I always wondered that. Just like when Nintendo allows a thrird party company to help work on a Mario game etc. Though that’s a bit different.
