Just saw this. How is it inspired by the Nickelodeon series when these are the BUTT UGLIEST turtles I have ever seen? They're absolutely hideous.

YES! Looks Perfect IMO, it's like a mix between the Nickelodeon Series and the New Action Figures. The Foot Soldiers look exactly the same as the Nick Cartoon.

Pretty much exactly what I expected from a New TMNT Game :) Can't wait.

What is bothering you so much? Is it the nostrils? Or the fact that they look like monsters? They are SUPPOSED To be giant mutant freaks, what did you expect?

I'd agree the sudden change in style from the Show may be off putting but come on, it's the perfect blend of the IDW Comics and The Nick Show!

IMO, it's a great update :)

I for one like the look, they look fairly realistic (not too toony ala Nick).

Sucks this is a downloadable game and not the full version. I have an Xbox360 but not Xbox live.

TMNT is cooler than MOTU

I wish there was a high-res version of the trailer. From what I can make out, these seem to be a bit more realistic looking Turtles. Can someone try to make some screencaps from it?

The trailer looked decent enough. Keeping expectations in check but i'm still stoked for this.

Can anyone find a better quality trailer though? To not release an HD trailer in this day in age is an insult. That video quality is garbage.

*edit*

FOUND, 720p below

I can't help but wonder why the press release states that the game is "Inspired by the Nickelodeon animated series"....

It doesn't look like the Nickelodeon show at all. It's clearly a new, realistic design approach to TMNT.
In fact I wouldn't be surprised if this look will end up resembling the upcoming Bay Turtles more then the Nick show.

Could it be that this game will try to warm us up to what's to come Bay-wise?

DUM DUM DUUUUUUUM! :teek:

You have to admit that it’s odd if they’d have redesigned the Turtles solely for this downloadable game…

If you look at the different designs of the on-screen TMNT Turtles since their birth it’s unprecedented.

Not considering their looks in comics, these are the different Ninja Turtles we’ve had so far:

1987: first animated TV show

1990: the movie look (with it’s sequels roughly based on the same design)

1997: Next Mutation

2003: second animated tv show

2007: CG feature

(Up until now all past video games featuring the Turtles have been based on these looks)

2012: third animated tv show

2013: Out of Shadows

2014: Bay

That in mind- it seems to me that Nickelodeon is a bit overzealous in redesigning the Turtles, don’t you think. Three completely different looks in three years seems a bit much.

That’s why I thought Out of the Shadows (or OOTS :) ) might be more than just a one shot for a downloadable game and why it might not be all too different from the look Bay is pursuing.

In fact it’s a pretty good idea to check if a look is suitable for the future. If the fan reactions are bad there’s still time to change it and OOTS’ll ‘just be a video game’.

Then again, maybe I’m wrong and OOTS will be unconnected from all the rest. It’s sure be a first but stranger things have happened.
Megan Fox will be April O'Neil... Nothing surprises me anymore.

I'm not really against them not basing the design of the turtles on their nick counterparts since I prefer a more mature look; but I really didn't like what I saw in the trailer. Something about the textures and models they used just doesn't sit well with me. It's not the shape or design that bothers me, it just doesn't look well presented. I'd venture to say that this is probably due to the fact that it is a downloadable game done by a minor studio, and that it didn't spend as much time in development as it should have. I was concerned about this the when the activision partnership was announced, but now I fear my concerns have become a reality.

I'm not gonna bash it till I see it in action, but I'm really worried about the quality of the game... I guess we'll find out soon enough.

There will be Exclusive info in the future. They literally JUST Launched their Facebook Page!

And we can officially say that this Game will be 'Influenced' by the Nick Cartoon rather than based on it.

(I also noticed a Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze reference in the Trailer at the very end where it seems like the Turtles are backing up, but they're actually crushing a robot with their shells similiar to how they crushed that Guy on the Vanilla Ice Dance Club!)

Yup that is definitely an unmistakable sign. The environments look familiar too, the dojo area is in their lair you can tell, it matches the Nick version close enough.

I'm giving it room to grow on me. I don't dislike the look, it's just different. I'd prefer a more Nick-authentic look but I'm flexible.

These turtles bear some influences from the Nick cartoon, but they're obviously different creatures. Only a comic book would make such a jarring change in appearance and carry the same storyline. Kids wouldn't get it.

They were, because the models still looked like the 2k3 ones.

These barely resemble anything like the Nick counterparts hence why it'd be odd to hear the likes of Greg Cipes, Sean Astin or Rob Paulsen coming out of realistic-looking Turtles.

Pisses me off that there's never any Nintendo support for things like this & Re-shelled, considering I only mess with their consoles... but I do have Steam at least, so that's something...

Ages 16 and up
Titles rated 16+ have been assessed to be suitable for gamers above the age of 16. May contain violence showing graphic and detailed depictions of brutality, death or injury to unrealistic humans or animals, glamorization of crime, use of illegal drugs, encouragement of the use of tobacco or alcohol, sexual expletives or blasphemy, erotic or sexual nudity, sexual intercourse without visible genitals.

Huh... so an M-Rated (Pegi 16 is the European equivalent of an M-Rating) TMNT game with more realistic looking Turtles... I know that second part is getting a lot of negative reactions, but personally, though, I would expect there's a good reason why their appearance causes April to faint or scream the first time she meets them in pretty much every iteration. That being said...

AN M-RATED TMNT GAME WITH MORE REALISTIC LOOKING TURTLES?!! :o

I'm hyped.

I don't understand why they didn't just make them look like the Nick Turtles.

Maybe because they wanted to do something original? Personally, I think I'd be a lot less interested in this game if it was just a tie-in. But I guess that's just me. :ohwell:

Besides, based on the rating, it sounds like this is aiming for something a little more mature, and I'm not sure the designs from the Nick cartoon would really work with that.

I wouldn't say a new interpretation doesn't deserve to exist as a game. But, Arcade Attack.

Arcade.
Attack.

Reinterpreting a franchise with a video game is just a huge task. Base it on an iteration, and you have your designs, characterizations, and maybe even your story already laid out for you. Tested and approved by your audience.

This game doesn't look to be adapting anything specific. We're already judging the design. But we're going to judge the music, the characters' attitudes and mannerisms, the voice actors, the plot, the enemies, the fighting style, etc, etc... They could have banked a number of those factors by adapting something, but instead, it's gonna have to do everything right on its own. I just don't see why they'd want all that weight.

God awful design choices aside gameplay doesn't even look good. Looks like a generic beat'em up. PS2 era at best and we've had plenty of bad 3D TMNT beat'em ups. I really don't see how "It's different" is a valid counter argument to those of us who think it looks like ass. A lot of things are different that doesn't in any way make them good. They seriously can't tell me they couldn't come up with something better. Whoever designed this clearly had their own vision in mind for the turtles and it's not at all in line with what most of us fans have. Since the target audience should be fans of the children's show and it looks nothing like it I can only assume they're going for the TMNT/comic fan crowd and I can tell you that most non-fans who delve into TMNT comics casually will scoff at these designs as well. I seriously hope these aren't considerations for the new film, though if they are I won't be all too surprised. Nothing else about the film has been good so far why start now?

To me, I think they're basing the game off of the idw comic, if you look closely, you'll notice they have 2 toes, true the art and story match with the tmnt tv show (as in foot stealing from kraang) but this seems a little dark for the tv show, and the kids will have nightmares abot the foot killing the turtles, and so on and so forth

Man, I guess I really am in the minority for liking these designs. I mean, they actually look like real turtles to me. If that looks scary in any way, it's because real mutant turtles WOULD look scary. I dig it. :P

I don't see the reason for the comparison, really. Mario's roots have always been in a less threatening, more cartoony environment, even as far back as Donkey Kong. I'd say that's a heck of a lot different than TMNT's roots, which was a gritty, dark, and violent environment.

The TMNT look ugly here, but I don't see that as a bad thing. They're still recognizable, and they're only ugly because, guess what, they're monsters! I think everyone's too used to seeing them in a way that represents them as more cute and approachable, but the fact of the matter is that they're giant mutant turtles. These designs are just sticking closer to what they'd look like if they were real, even moreso than any of the live-action movies of the past did. In-universe, what are usually people's reactions to seeing the Turtles for the first time? Screaming in terror seems to be pretty common.

I honestly think most of you are being too harsh, and while I certainly have nothing against more cartoony looking Turtles, I actually think it's pretty awesome that someone finally made a better attempt at making them look like what they'd likely look like if they were real. If their looks are apprehensive to you, that's only because they're supposed to. It's not like we're talking about Mickey Mouse here. These aren't squash-n-stretch toons, they're mutated freaks that live in a world mostly grounded in reality (but with a lot of sci-fi elements, of course).

I'm sorry most of you feel so negatively about how they look, but ya know what? You can just skip out on this game, if you'd like. I'm sure it's only a matter of time until they make another TMNT game that has more digestible, cartoony designs. Personally, what I'm going to judge more on this game, after having seen the direction they're going in, is what the humans look like. If the humans look real, then I'm sold. Granted, I can't speak for the gameplay, as it's still too early to know what that'll be like, but I do enjoy beat 'em ups, so I have my hopes.

Looks like a pretty formulaic, receptive beat em up. I wish these game companies would realize that although the original TMNT NES and arcade games were absolutely fantastic, it's not 1989 anymore and it's be nice to get a different kind of TMNT game. Holding out hope for a LEGO game, actually.

Y'know, I think these designs are pretty good for a downloadable game. I wouldn't be upset if the Bay TMNT looked similar.

good? Those designs are awful. But this gameplay must be from the xbox or the ps3 version of the game. The PC version designs on max settings must be a lot better than this if they include full dx11 support (tasselation hd graphics). I have a GTX 560 TI TWIN FRONZ II OC 2 GB, and i am expecting the game to look a LOT better than this on my PC. This must be probably console version footage pc version will look a lot better

Unless I'm mistaken, a seperate retail game featuring the Nickelodeon show likenesses should follow after OOTS.
It's odd that they didn't release a 2k12 game first and the OOTS downloadable game later though...

How could any of you be complaining about this? Some of you are probably really into gaming and thus can't get past aesthetic issues, style, or whatever, but as a guy who only plays games minimally, judging from the trailer alone we are getting an AWESOME, mature, TMNT game.

This is what we're getting:

- Awesome redesigns that look like they could be movie quality
- Clearly a first movie based indie looking kind of game
- 4 player co-op
- Looks to be sophisticated beat 'em up, which to me is a positive

Look what we've been given most recently concerning TMNT games:

- 2007 TMNT sucked and was single player (why?)
- TMNT Smash Up was okay, but got really boring very fast
- TMNT Turtles in Time rehash was admirable but only fairly good

By the looks of this trailer alone, this game is way cooler and more appealing than anything we've been given in the recent past.

You've pretty much summarized everything rather succinctly. I've also noticed that this fandom is really good at passing judgment on everything in the blink of an eye.

And I have yet to hear anyone say just what it is about these designs that's "bad". As I've already stated, their looking ugly, creepy, or monstrous is fitting of the fact that they're giant mutant turtles. And even looking at them like that, something about them still comes off as charming the more I look at them. I mean, you're all welcome to not like them, and I can certainly understand being creeped out by realistic looking mutant turtles, but just what is it about these designs that are "bad"? I actually find these designs to be pretty believable interpretations of what Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would look like if they actually existed.

I don't understand all the rants around here, we've been asking for a gritty TMNT game and when it finally comes people complain about it. Sure, I agree that the turtles could've been made a lot better, they do look a bit alien-like to be honest, but I will definitely buy this game. To say you're not buying it because you don't like the design of the turtles is just stupid. It's a game, judge it on it's gameplay and game design, not it's looks. It's still early days after all.

how does they look "alien"? Alien as in extraterrestrials or as in strange creatures?

From the trailer, their feet, mainly the toes looks a bit undefined. And the shells looks a bit off.

I do enjoy the paint markings they have in their skin and the skin texture in general looks nice in close-ups.

Both, I think, haha. I was referring to their faces, or eyes to be more specific. Look at Don for example, it's very far between his eyes, they're quite big, clear and open, if you get what I mean. It gives me an "alien" impression, both as extraterrestrials and strange creatures. There's not necessarily anything bad about it though.

I think hopes might be a little high for some. Arkham keeps coming up. It appears to be download only, so I expect a maximum price of $20. This is probably a straight-forward beat-em-up that cost not a lot of money to make, and that'll probably take an hour to beat.

Would be pretty sweet to see Nick back a new turtle game, taking on the open world Sandbox style (keeping the shows wit and action ) each turtle have their own extensive skill set of moves and alternate weapons Ala : Ninja Gaiden / or Ninja theory's take on the DMC series...oh well..far easier typed and said than done.

with this being a downloadable title, I dont expect much in terms of in depth Gameplay .......Summer 2013 release date? graphics change? not going to happen, as aforementioned , I too fear it wont be much more than a beat em up that one can complete with nothing more than a couple hours of playtime- tacked on with some DLC a month later upon release.

The real developer makes the 360 and PS3 versions, and they pay some second-rate developer to make a Wii version, because the hardware is to weak for an actual port. That way, they get to sell a hackneyed version the game on Wii, without devoting any actual manpower or time to it.

And those second-rate devs are the ones making this game.

i dont understand why some of yall are saying you're not going to support it just because its not exactly like the nick show. wouldn't more options regarding the turtles be better for fans? i mean, there are already a bunch of games featuring the look of the nick show exactly over at the nick website. maybe they're not the most immersive or complex games, but i doubt this one will be either. its a downloadable game, $20 bucks max.

instead of crying, be happy were getting this, in addition to whatever actual console releases come out later.

Sounds like I'll be signing up for Steam this year because I sure don't have the bucks for a 360 or PS3.

Okay the designs will take time to get used to but how often will you even be looking at the turtles fronts? I'm more concerned for whether or not the game will be fun to play. It has 4 player co-op so that's a good start. It seems like they might be taking more pages from the comics than the new cartoon. Until I see The Kraang show up or a teenage April, that is what I'm expecting based on the trailer. Seems more like a farely down-to-earth approach to a TMNT street and sewer brawler.

The Pegi 16 doesn't make me assume the US version will be M but rather T because the Pegi 16 probably has something to do with the use of gang weapons in a somewhat realistic setting but I could be wrong. If we actually got an M rated TMNT, that'd be something else.

I don't want the current VAs on this one. I could see them do a fine job with it but I feel like they should use different VAs to detach it a bit more from the cartoon.

This looks to be Activision's answer to people wanting a gritty TMNT brawler and I appreciate the effort regardless but it could go so horribly wrong. I'm going to remain optimistic.

I figured the first TMNT game would be a downloadable one in this age because the very idea of paying full retail for a game that takes less than an hour to beat is pretty appalling to most gamers. They'd rather such a short game be much cheaper.

It is also a good thing that their brawler game is retail length because lets face it, very few brawlers are actually that enjoyable after about a half hour to an hour of mundane fighting. The 2007 TMNT was incredibly dull to play on consoles for that reason (as well as no co-op). The non-fighting parts of that game were occasionally fun but it all got so samey by the end.

They absolutely should make a game that looks exactly like the new cartoon and retells the story and possibly expands on it with lots of extra features that's good for families to play together. But this isn't that game and shouldn't have been that game because they haven't even had the license for that long. I hope they do have THAT game planned for this Holiday season and they'll show it at E3 but this more mature TMNT game is something we haven't had before. I just hope it is enjoyable to play.

I look forward to seeing how much this is like the Nick show or the comics.

Also, look no third toe in this.

Personally, what I'm going to judge more on this game, after having seen the direction they're going in, is what the humans look like. If the humans look real, then I'm sold. Granted, I can't speak for the gameplay, as it's still too early to know what that'll be like, but I do enjoy beat 'em ups, so I have my hopes.

How are the turtles and Mario not comparable. The Turtles have always looked cartoony, just like Mario. Even in the live-action movies (which I have no nostalgia for) they looked a bit cartoony.

So Turtles look similar to this in some fan art... and everyone pisses themselves and says that they need to "make something" like that.

Someone finally does, and there's nothing but nerd rage.

This fandom is retarded.

It's true that some people will complain about anything, but in this case it's rather reasonable. The designs aren't great and probably most importantly, the development team's track record isn't good. In fact, it's rather bad. It's not over negativity to think this game could come out the same. Still, they could surprise us.

If you're positive about the game, awesome. If you're negative about the game, awesome. Just don't sit there and think that everyone should feel the same about it.

In the end, all we have is hope... sorry, random GOW reference. ;)

I'm not sure what to say about the game at this point. It's too early to tell whether or not it'll be any good... and we've been set up for disappointment far too much in that regard. In all honesty though, after some of the sh**fest TMNT games we've been presented, they shouldn't have to work too hard to top 'em. Some folks have the attitude that any game marked with a TMNT logo is an instant masterpiece, when that just isn't so.

Right now, I'm simply hoping each turtle plays a bit differently.

Stay pessimistic... that way, if it isn't a total dump truck, you'll be all the more amazed.

Ghostbusters and Force Unleashed/2 are not "ports." They're separate games. The real developer makes the 360 and PS3 versions, and they pay some second-rate developer to make a Wii version, because the hardware is to weak for an actual port. That way, they get to sell a hackneyed version the game on Wii, without devoting any actual manpower or time to it.So the Wii version of Thor was a port?

It's a Downloadable Title. Nintendo has a very weak market for that right now. Put it out on the services that make money and don't waste time with smaller services. Especially when it would require developing for that gamepad.

Ubisoft wasn't great with the TMNT license, even if Smash-Up was decent. I'm not sure if going to Activision was a good idea, I would have rathered Konami get it again. Their 2D games on GBA and DS were almost as good as the classics.

I don't see the reason for the comparison, really. Mario's roots have always been in a less threatening, more cartoony environment, even as far back as Donkey Kong. I'd say that's a heck of a lot different than TMNT's roots, which was a gritty, dark, and violent environment.

The TMNT look ugly here, but I don't see that as a bad thing. They're still recognizable, and they're only ugly because, guess what, they're monsters! I think everyone's too used to seeing them in a way that represents them as more cute and approachable, but the fact of the matter is that they're giant mutant turtles. These designs are just sticking closer to what they'd look like if they were real, even moreso than any of the live-action movies of the past did. In-universe, what are usually people's reactions to seeing the Turtles for the first time? Screaming in terror seems to be pretty common.

I honestly think most of you are being too harsh, and while I certainly have nothing against more cartoony looking Turtles, I actually think it's pretty awesome that someone finally made a better attempt at making them look like what they'd likely look like if they were real. If their looks are apprehensive to you, that's only because they're supposed to. It's not like we're talking about Mickey Mouse here. These aren't squash-n-stretch toons, they're mutated freaks that live in a world mostly grounded in reality (but with a lot of sci-fi elements, of course).

I'm sorry most of you feel so negatively about how they look, but ya know what? You can just skip out on this game, if you'd like. I'm sure it's only a matter of time until they make another TMNT game that has more digestible, cartoony designs.

Other than that, I was hoping something like this would've been a sprite-based sides rolling arcade throwback similar to a Klei game or the Scott Pilgrim game. Aside from that minor wish, this is pretty much exactly what I wanted: an (assumedly)inexpensive downloadable beat'em'up with online multiplayer. :tgrin:

Even as a Wii U owner I wouldn't buy a nintendo version. They are releasing it on Steam, that's all I need to know or care about. Done and bought as soon as it's available. I do hope there are already plans (if not development) for a future TMNT game on next gen platforms though. PS4/Nextbox/PC should be the next game... I hope.

Out of the Shadows is download only... which i'm fine with, but that doesn't show a lot of confidence in their product. It's clearly a game made on the cheap and the video/screens indicate that to me. If this were a game they spent a lot of time and money on they'd put it on discs and into stores. I just hope their next game is more of an effort.

It just means that the game will only be available as a download through the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live or Steam. There won't be a conventional retail release; you won't be able to buy a physical copy in a store.

Generally games that are only released as downloads like this are shorter and cheaper than conventional releases (~$15-20 vs. $50-60).

Journey is one example of a downloadable game even though it was eventually released on a disc.

To me, though, they look like a cross between a turtle and a human. Which might be one of the things I really like about these designs.

It depends on the game.

For quality though? A good chunk of downloadable games from last blew almost everything on consoles out of the water.

Also, most games don't even have booklets anymore and who cares about having a disc? Less time for start up and load times.

Yes, generally downloadable games are shorter than full retail releases. It's part of why they're also usually cheaper to buy.

You should definitely try Journey. It took me about 2 hours from beginning to end, but it was the best $15 I've ever spent on a PSN title. Plus if you really want that physical copy you can buy it as part of a 3 pack with ThatGameCompany's other PSN exclusives.

Downloadable games certainly have their positive points, but there's their negative points, too. Particularly if it's a licensed game, it'd be harder to get it if you missed out on getting it before, after it's discontinued from being sold due to an expired license (it's why the NES TMNT game isn't on Virtual Console now, and why Re-Shelled isn't on PSN anymore). And if you want to bring the game over to a friend's house, you'll have to bring the entire console with you, and this can be an inconvenient hassle. Also, if for whatever reason, you decide to sell your console, you won't be getting any extra money for the downloaded games that are on it.

So, sure there's some upsides to downloadable games, but there's definitely downsides, too. Whether or not the downsides are inconsequential depends on the person, I guess, but those points are still there.

Hehe. You're not wrong there...

Adding the nostrils is a tricky business indeed. Combined with the very humanoid faces the whole tends to look a bit freaky and snake-like.

Still, I think that if bit of roundness would've been added to the face designs it would've greatly approved them. An amalgam between the movie I faces and the current OOTS ones would've been ideal.
Oh well.

Actually, the thing that bothers me the most about the OOTS faces is that the textures are clearly mirrored. Nothing unusual about that, but in the cases of Raph and Mikey, who have distinct patterns on their heads- it's needlessly accentuated.
That being said, stuff like that only shows on Hi-Res images and will probably be unnoticable while playing the game.

Anyway, thanks for the info on the lenght of downloadable games, you guys. :twink:

To illustrate what I was saying a few posts earlier, I made a (very) quick mock-up of what I personally think would improve the current Turtle faces. All I did was make the face a bit rounder (so that our pal Leo looks less reptilian) and remove the yellowness in the face that created un unnecessary beaky look.
I didn't even touch the nostrils.

I meant that not all consoles allow you to do that, but for this specific game it's a non-issue since I believe all the platforms it's being released for do allow that.

Used downloadable games? The games are already 15 bucks at the most. What do you want?

Did you forget what I said about licenses? If someone can't get the game the first time around (and there's multiple reasons why this could happen), then years down the road they'll be unable to ever own the game because it's no longer available for purchase. This is where physical games have an advantage. Granted, you might need to do a bit of tracking down, but at least the possibility is there.

I find that when stuff is download-only, it's usually a game that wouldn't exist if they had pay to publish it on disc. So I can't really complain.

That's all changing, though. While PS4 will still have discs, its supposed to have all games available digitally. We shall see what people choose when they have the option. I'm betting discs will continue to sell throughout this console generation. (CDs are still the top-selling music format.)

Point A) To say the Mutant Turtles are Ugly is just stupid! This depiction is the closest we're going to get to an Arkham Asylum type of "dark and gritty" looking TMNT. I love the design, a lot of thought behind it and they look like F'n Mutant Ninja Turtles (actually more like Mutant KARATE Turtles).....
The "ugly" is actually a complement to designers. They made a new depiction of what real MUTANT TURTLES would actually look like. Personally I'm sure these guy are much more heroic and handsome than what the REAL result would be (I'm thinking something scare out of Prometheus).
MUTANT TURTLES should be somewhat scary! and freakish! It's their personalities and emotions and spirits that we fall in love with, what better way than to have "monters" that talk and feel what our boys are like?!>!>!!>!>!>?!?!?

This is step one of the new games, honestly Activisions "Download" is going to be a demo game to make waves, it's going to be something to play, make a BUZZ in the industry. I think Out Of The Shadows is a PERFECT intro game, it's got an original art direction that isn't committed to Nick or IDW. However it's going to be a basic "Beat'em Up Game" Of course it is, this is marketing at it's best, a Downloadable game to hear and see all the feedback on what the fanatics/market want in a TMNT game.
Maybe I'm a conspiracy theorist but part of me thinks they make the TMNT's in a very "Arkham Asylum" style because that was the buzz all over the internet. These guys aren't dumb, they have Skylanders and are masters of marketing. They are "feeling out" and that's all this game is, a simple downloadable "Beat'em up game with an Arkham style theme" because that's what 2012 generated as a buzz. Trust me the console games are going to be VERY different.

Take off your reactionary fanboy hats and actually think about marketing, media, and a HUGE franchise video game series.
Honestly I would think they would make a TMNT Skylanders type of series of all the characters as action figures that you can collect and play in a game, think about it, TMNT, Playmates, Activision = one of the BIGGEST money making entertainments in 2014 with every kid 6 to 13 (and then all the geek parents)
BOOM END OF Rant!!!!!

It would be easy to "unlock" different "skins".
Activisions Wolverine had the ability to "unlock" different Wolvie costumes as you play the game,
maybe in the console game you will be able to unlock different "skins/costumes" in various versions.... I personally would love to see an all Black Raph from the Adventures line...

On another note, I heard back at the Facebook page. Got your typical vague ass response-

"The game is inspired by the Nick show, so they're already involved (check out their page in our featured "Likes")."

I'm honestly thinking they misread Nintendo as Nickelodeon, considering that made no sense and the only page I can see they've liked is that of the Nick show.

If that's the case, these guys are idiots.

Why is it such a big deal to you anyway? They decided not to put it on Nintendo consoles. The end. It happens all the time. There's probably not a long detailed explanation.

I don't like some of the responses on here because most of them are quite rude.
Someone will state their opinion and someone will blatantly say they are wrong. Someone's opinion cannot be wrong, it's an OPINION.

That said, I will give my opinion and anyone can agree or disagree, I don't care.

As a fan, I'm going to buy this game, I look forward to embarking on an adventure with my favorite characters of all time. The art design is different. It's gritty, dark, looks a bit more mature, and it's everything I could ask for in a new TMNT game.
The Turtles' designs are a bit shocking, and I will agree, the nostrils are the worst part, at least for me, but I can get past it. The only design I really dislike is Raphael's strange 'five o'clock shadow' he's got going on.
I strongly believe that though the description says it is inspired by the Nick turtles, and the Tree and Splinter in the background support that, these turtles might be what Bay's turtles will look like in the movie. If this is the case, I'm excited to see the Turtles take a darker turn like they were first created to do.

You've just nailed it! I don't understand why some people here get all aggressive when somebody's just posting his view on certain things. It's their opinion, therefore they can express it here. You can argue but you don't have to get pissed and all & react in rude childish ways, that's just bogues!

As you said, I'm not a huge fan of the nostrils either, I gotta say the designs will have to grow on me, however I'm really glad to finally get a Turtles game for PS3 and I'll buy it as a fan. I guess the game will be good in the long run.:tgrin:

The biggest problem here seems to be the nostrils that make them look like the cast of Dinosaurs.
I can't believe that with all the great art that it's out there they just can't get the design right.

I don't know if I mentioned it, but I think alternate costumes would be cool for the game

could be like a "Turtles Forever" pack, where they are different skins of (Mirage/87/03/IDW/More Nick) this way for the "animation clash" feel, and also when playing online, it doesn't have to be "Oh, if the other three turtles are taken, I guess I have to be the worst" this way it can be a mix and match team up

Quick question, people say they want Konami to do the game again... but what was the last game Konami made that was memorable (seriously, the only thing I know they do is the Yu-Gi-Oh! games)

And those games are completely different genres compared to what they did with TMNT 20 years ago.

I think she also said lately. There hasn't been a good Silent Hill since the first one and the latest Metal Gear was done by Platinum.

You can tell the lair resembles the nick layout some, you can even see the characteristic tree in the training room. also it's been pointed out that raph's shell has the crack as seen in the nick show. so there is definitely evidence that it's nick inspired. it's supposed to have a large number of characters too. after seeing the turtles i really want to see what their other designs look like. particularly the other mutants like leatherhead, dogpound and fishface

Take a closer look. The designs (like Raph's chipped areas or the bandages) and the settings (like the tree in the dojo) are the same design but with a different art style.

Exactly. What it looks like to me is that they took the Nick series and said "What would this show look like in real life?". The Turtles gear is the same, the lair is the same, and the Foot uniforms are the same. The models and textures are just lifelike, that's all.

Because it's digital, it'll probably only cost around $15. Putting it on a disc would probably make it cost at least twice as much.

Everyone keeps griping about the fact that there won't be a retail disc version... but someone else already addressed it. Depending on sales, they may opt to release it.

Back to the Future, The Walking Dead and Red Dead Nightmare are a few examples off hand that I can think of. These were all digital downloads, prior to retail release, no?

Regardless, we have to give in to the fact that this is the direction things are headed. Don't get me wrong, I'd love a physical copy too... it'd be less demanding on HD space, etc but of downloading is what I have to do, it's what I'll do.

Of course we do, you clown.

Just saying that if this particular game was crammed onto a disc it would cost way more than 15 dollars.

Stop getting your hopes up for that next game too. It's going to be made for kids and be something more in line with the Spongebob games than Assassin's creed.

but the game, even though it's not exactly like the Nick version does look cool :D

and if TMNT keeps doing well like it's been, maybe we will get another game that looks more like the Nick version :3

but let's give this game a chance and support TMNT 2012 :3

There is going to be a game based on the Nick cartoon though. What do you think Nick partnered with Activision for the license in the first place?

This is just a random downloadable game, the console and probably 3DS game will be based on the cartoon for kids.

I have to say I been out of the loop with TMNT for a little bit now, I did buy the NICK TMNT DVD and some toys for my son seeing that he really loves the TMNT, But I actually saw the trailer for this game last week on IGN and was blown away, I like how it has a dark and gritty feel and doesn't look like the games of the past where they where based of the cartoon looks. Im going to love this game and getting on XBOX unless more people are getting it on PS3, let me know would love to play with all of you
