Platinum Games Working On Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game

Platinum Games seem to have their hands in everything right now and today we have learnt via Australia’s Classification Board that they are working on a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game. The game will be published by Activision who previously published Platinum Games Transformers Devastation so there’s no indication as to whether this particular project will come to the Wii U, but we can cross our fingers. The game is titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan and we could hear something about it at The Game Awards which take place on Thursday.

  1. I fear that Activision are gonna screw us for the third time that it’s gonna come to PS4 and XBOne.

    1. >>>I can’t stand the Xbots any longer, I want them erased from existance as soon as possible>>>

      1. “more popular than ever”

        Idk about that. Back in my day (that’s tough to say) they were the bee’s knees. We had pretty iconic franchises and had decent games to go with it. Now it’s mediocre games and a rehash of what was great.

    1. TMNT, Transformers, G.I. Joe…they’ve all been reincarnated many times since their initial releases (although it took G.I. Joe several decades to go from toy to toon). & those franchises also have comic books keeping them relevant.

      Even Thundercats was resurrected a few years ago. Alas, the new series, while exceptionally good, was too costly to keep alive. Just as video games, particularly AAA, rely on DLC/microtransactions to turn a profit, big-budget toons also rely on toys/merchandise to keep them alive. & I thought the advancements in technology (animating on computers, pre-fab engines, middleware, digital distribution, etc) would’ve alleviated much of those costs, but somehow they all need more money than ever before 😱. Anyway…

      Thundercats toys apparently weren’t selling enough to justify the show’s budget (they didn’t seem very collectable to me, & I doubt kids were all that crazy to play w/ them). Similar reasons why Sym-Bionic Titan had its plug pulled.

      😵 What was the topic again?

  2. PLATINUM GAMES SCREWED NINTENDO GAMERS OUTTA TRANSFORMERS:DEVASTATION; WHY SHOULD TMNT BE ANY DIFFERENT & COMPANIES JUST DON’T CARE! OBVIOUSLY, THEY DON’T HAVE THE TALENT TO PRODUCE FOR THE U. IT’S TOO CHALLENGING AND OVERWHELMING FOR THEM TO DEVELOP FOR!

  3. I wish they’d make another classic Ninja Turtles game based on the original 1987/88 series. I’d love to see modern graphics with a classic Ninja Turtles game. Seeing classic characters in amazing HD. But alas, I know it’s most likely based on the current Nickelodeon series. *Sigh*

    1. That’s the only TMNT series that matters. I hate the new stuff. Would be so down for the classics in a new game. Turtles in Time on SNES was amazing, I’d love that remade or on the VC.

      1. Pftt, if you thing Tmnt should only revolve around the 87 …and only the 87 series ( which isn’t aged well and very overrated and goofy as hell) then you are sadly mistaken, the creators don’t even like that series, that’s the problem with you 87 fans, you’re too entitled and obnoxious to this that you totally disregard the better works of tmnt in favor of this, bet you said the same thing about Batman:Tas in favor for superfriends.

        1. Yes because Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Meets Call of Duty Ninjas with Baysplosions all over the place is so much better, right? I’ll take the 87 cartoon series or the first two movies over that crap.

          1. Kids wanna act like they are as big fans as the old school fans cause they look up to us so they will sit there straight-faced telling you that shit movies and cartoons are better than the originals. Lol as if I care what someone who’s probably ten years or more younger than me thinks of TMNT. Sorry but to me the 80s series fans are the only ones who matter lol.

              I guess people just like fart jokes & sexual innuendo jokes & all of that other crap these days. I guess we can blame South Park for that since it’s so popular these days. I miss the days when asinine jokes were only liked for certain cartoons & movies but now it seems that shit has to be in fucking everything these days. And this is coming from someone who’s been a fan of South Park since the beginning!

          2. I haven’t seen the movie since I knew it would be bad, but if it’s even slightly more violent than the series, it’s a better TMNT adaptation than those cartoons.

            TMNT has always been an edgy franchise. It started out as a parody of the ultra-violent run on Daredevil by Frank Miller, from which it borrowed a lot of elements such as the name of the opposed ninja clan (Foot and Hand) to the origin story and general artstyle.

        2. That’s the problem with you young gits, you think your opinion is relevant. The new shit sucks and is far more kiddie at stupid. The turtles look goofy as fuck in the new series and they try too hard to look cool and fail. And the new movie is trash where as the originals are classics. Fuck what the creators think if they didn’t like it I don’t like the turtles cause of the creators I liked the turtles cause they were entertaining. George Lucas is the creator of Star Wars, do I care which ones he thinks are good? Not at all. Lol better works or TMNT. Sounds like someone desperate to prove they are a bigger fan than the old school fans.

            The problem with some of these “fans” these days is they get being a fan mixed up with being a fucking idiot that takes bullshit & likes it. Fan =/= idiot.

    1. To quote Tosh

      “Stop saying your childhood has been destroyed by hollywood reboots, if your favorite memory as a kid is a cartoon, then your past isn’t worth remembering “.

      1. Daniel Tosh? Didn’t he also quote, “Anal sex is like spinach, having it forced on you as a kid makes you hate it as an adult”. lol

        Just sayin, Tosh.0 is not then best source of wisdom.

  4. So is it safe to assume that Activision has Platinum making a game a year for them now…? 2014 was Korra (also a Nick property), 2015 was Transformers, and 2016 is going to be TMNT (a Nick property)?

    If they do what they did with Transformers Devastation, this game may be based around the original cartoon’s cast.

  5. Unless it’s following an original story or is following one of the cartoon series or even based on the awesome 90s movies (the first two as the 3rd one was okay but not worth continuing from & should be ignored if they ever go back to that continuity), I’m not interested in the slightest. Wait. Activision will be the publisher? Fuck! It’s going to be based on that fucking Michael Bay shitfest, isn’t it!? I don’t want my fucking Foot Clan as fucking military douchebags with guns & shit! Foot Clan NINJAS or fuck you!

    1. Oh & one more thing: I want Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, not Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Steroids! THEY ARE TOO DAMN BIG!!! The only mutant turtle I would give a pass for being that big would be Tokka.

      1. Yea, they are WAY too big. They are supposed to be the size of an average human being. In every cartoon, no matter the year, they have always been this size. Michael Bay took it upon himself to change their appearance, ignoring every bit of source material available. The turtles in his version, (the non-canon version as far as I’m concerned) has them weighing literally 500-700 pounds a piece. Maybe more even. Their Giants, thier ugly, and his rendition of TMNT is the worst thing to ever happen to the series. In fact, he has done nothing but diminish the reputation of the turtles..

        And can you believe this vile movie actually has a sequel in the making?

        1. Jaded Ridley X3 {I'm not whining, you suckers... *cough* ..poor souls! I've just been driven insane by Nintendo failing me one too many times this gen!} says:

          I think he was pissed we crucified his stupid idea to turn them into fucking Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles, so he fucking corrupted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles out of fucking spite. Sadly, it apparently did rather well as the budget for making the movie was around 120 million & they made over 400 million worldwide at the theaters. *twitch* So yes. Sadly a filthy sequel is well on it’s fucking way.

          I’m so sick of Michael Bay’s fucking obsession with turning every single popular 80s/90s cartoons & board games into an alien filled smorgasbord. First the Battleship movie based on the Battleship board game then tried to do it with TMNT. I give him a pass with Transformers since those are in fact aliens in the source material. Just wait. It won’t be long before we get a remake of the Clue movie where the killer is a fucking alien from WallaFucKlueLand!

  6. >>>If they keep that human called Michael Bay off this game then it can be great>>>

  7. Show some love for Ronin Warriors!

    But yah, a well made game with the idea and spirit of the older games would be gnarly. Add in multiplayer mayhem and I’d check into that.

  8. Too much blind nostalgia for the old series. It was good for what it was, but campy as hell. The new series is objectively better in every way: Deeper, more fleshed out characters, better plot development, better animation, etc, etc, etc. Why not embrace all of it (although admittedly, I only watched the recent film as a curiosity and haven’t returned to it).
