So then this is what those IDW inspired TMNT models from THPS5 are from. Siiiick.

M rating? Finally, something on some real ninja sh*t.

Activision recently had Platinum make a Legend of Korra and Transformers games, so this is probably legit.

I've wanted a Platinum developed TMNT game for a while. Anyone who has played Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising, Viewtiful Joe, Okami, Wonderful 101, etc. knows they're a fantastic developer. They're also working on Starfox Zero with Nintendo.

That's awesome news! Let's hope the gameplay is good and it's something that has more meat to it instead of being able to play through it in just a few hours.

As Powder said the designs are likely IDW inspired because of those skins in Tony Hawk 5. I was worried this game would be based on the movie in 2016 and I'm glad it won't be.

I will never buy a TMNT videogame with Turtle nostrils. I wouldn't mind a Nick universe inspired game though.

Platinum Games? Ninja Turtles? M Rating?! HELL YES.

Oh and it's out for every damn system EXCEPT Wii U. What a surprise.
Come on, Platinum. You've developed some of the best games ON the Wii U! It's no new territory for you, nor is it more cost-effective to not develop for the damn thing. That's just depressing.

I read that the M rating in Australia is the equivalent of T on the ESRB scale. Color me excited, wasn't that platinum transformers game like extremely accurate to the original show? I'd love a modern cel shaded TMNT game, I don't care if it's based on the OT or not just give me a cool TMNT game. I would get it for PC/

Hah! Can I call 'em or what? :lol: http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showpost.php?p=1511629&postcount=18

But anyway, if it's IDW-inspired or uses IDW's style in an original story, that's fine by me. I was just really hoping it wouldn't be using the 2014 or Nick Turtles. Those already have the stink of shovelware associated with them, and that's the last thing a game like this would need.

Revengeance was a cute little balls-to-the-walls game. Personally I'd be more invested had they taken directly over for a sequel to OotS, with the same designs and continuation of the story.

But, this is fine too, if we're getting those IDW models from Tony Hawk 5.

The Mutant Melee and Smash Up games are definitely cool ideas to have for a TMNT game. I'm guessing this will be a beat em up of some kind which would be awesome but they tend to get bad reviews no matter how much fun they are. I think Platinum games making this game is probably the best thing that has happened to the franchise in terms of videogames since umm Konami in the 90s.

even though many are hoping the game is based on the IDW series, What if the new game is based on the Fred Wolf series? Transformers Devastation was based on the Transformers G1 cartoons from the 80s and captured it perfectly.

So why not do a game based on the 80s TMNT series?

sdp
11-30-2015, 09:12 PM
Counting the game is apparently rated T I don't see it being based on the OT, not that I wouldn't mind an awesome cel shaded OT game, I don't care for transformers but that game looked like a dream come true to any G1 fan and it also had good gameplay from what I read not to mention a cheap price.

The best option would be to have a game not related to any one continuity, not even IDW, have them play around in the universe and do what they want. I actually wasn't hyped when I first read it just found it cool but now that I think about it this may be the game we've been waiting for since the SNES days.

Mugic

I have a feeling the game will be a mix of FW and IDW similar to how Transformers: Devastation was a mix of the 80's cartoon and the IDW comics.

There's no way they aren't using the IDW models from THPS5. They're the same style as the Transformers game & everything, dude.

Besides, using IDW turtles makes it marketable to both kids & adults 'cause it looks like Nick but has OT characters all up in it's biz.

That aside, it's pretty clear there are some rights issues with the Fred Wolf likeness given all the retro merch isn't true to form.

I hope the game is not based strictly on the IDW universe, I wouldn't want the game to be restricted by what the IDW universe allows. Very similar models is fine but that's what made the OT games so great, while inspired by the OT they were able to do as they wish unlike say the 2k3 games which were pretty much boring since all you could do is what had happened the previous season.

here is how Transformers Devastation looks, IIRC it was also announced randomly and just dropped, it was a cheap game, god good reviews and looks amazing, makes me wish I were a transformers fan to appreciate it.

IDW's got tonnns of content, though. Lots of OT characters & inspired arcs. I'm sure it'd be great fun to those who aren't familiar with or even aren't particularly fond of the IDWverse.

In this case, it's not up to Platinum. Activision is the publisher, here, and if they don't think it's worth putting this game on the Wii U, there's not much else P* can do about it, either way.

If it's like Devastation at all, it likely won't be strictly in continuity, either. Yes, the official word is that the game takes place before the '86 Transformers movie, but with the likes of Nova Prime from the IDW comic being a part of the story, it's definitely not a strict G1 story.

But I do think utilizing the "IDW style" would be best here, as well. Even if the game doesn't go to the beat of the comic much at all besides using character designs, it would free them up to pretty much use any Fred Wolf/Archie-inspired character and give them an IDW-style redesign. And if said character(s) eventually rolls over into the comic itself and/or get toys because they were well-received, then that only makes things even better for Nick/Playmates' bottomline.

Speaking of which...if this is what it takes for the IDW-style characters to finally get some figure representation, so much the better! :D

Let's all just remember to keep our expectations in check. We don't yet know what kind of budget this thing is shooting for and that will dictate a lot of what they're allowed to do with the game.

If anything, I see this being a Legend of Korra sized download only title, which probably isn't what any of us want, but is most likely closer to what the market will sustain. I'm just hoping for co-op.

According to the classification site, it's rating is based on violence and online interactivity. So I assume that means online co op?

Nah, I disagree.

Even Transformers got a retail release for a budgeted price, and as much as I love G1 TF, it's a brand that doesn't have nearly the kind of widespread affection among a larger, general audience that TMNT does. And having a space on retail shelves is what you ideally want for a product that's even aiming more for "middle tier" market than the high-end AAA/AAAA.

The main reason Korra was made a download-only title was likely due to the fact that it was, as was stated in some press releases, meant to be the thing that "tested the waters" for Activision and P*'s continued relationship. Both parties were pleased, so obviously, that's where TF: Devastation and now TMNT came from.

Hey, you're right! After our initial guesses about those hints pointing to that new tabletop game largely fell flat, a lot of us were left scratching our heads. But between the THPS5 models and this announcement, now it just seems like things are sliding into place. :D

True. But I think as long as people keep in mind that this is still likely going to be a mid-tier project of some sort, and a first game that hopefully builds a foundation for sequels, things may just work out. And people will stay sane.

...Nah, who we kiddin?! :lol:

CyberCubed
12-01-2015, 02:35 PM
I think its for the best they're going with the IDW Turtle designs. If they went with the Nick cartoon designs the game would be viewed as another licensed kids game, and if they went with the 80's cartoon designs it would be seen as nostalgia pandering.

Going with a more "neutral" design for the Turtles is the best movie. The IDW Turtles basically look like a mix of the Mirage/4kids Turtles anyway.

I'd guess it's coming out on PC as well, OOTS came out there as well and most major releases now get PC ports. I hope so as well since I'm a Nintendo/PC guy only as well, I don't game enough to warrant a game console.

Yeah I think this will be a smaller game and maybe downloadable only title but that's fine as long as it's fun/good. I don't need a giant epic, I just want a good TMNT game even if it's a fun short ride.

But still almost all developers that were releasing their games for consoles until a few years ago like Namco Platinium Temco Koei now brings evrything on pc and because of that we have games like Mortal Kombat x Tranformers Devastastion Dead Or Alive 5Metal gear 5 e.t.c at the same time on pc. I am talking about japanese devs as these are the ones that were ignoring pc for so long, the european and Americans devs has always been releasing their games on pc forever. Not only that but we see that the few genres that were on consoles only like fighters for example now are coming to pc. Until 2009 only capcom was releasing fighters on pc now evryone is brining them to pc and so far only Tekken has not come yet. The pc versions of the games are the best versions as they have much better graphics and fremaeratte than consoles you can play up to 4k resolution and you can use whatever contoler you like. Also you dont need to pay for online.
And since we are talking about gaming take a look here http://store.steampowered.com/hardware/#Machines
Steam machine is a new version of the pc. They are gaming pc at the size of a console equiped with controller. In other words they are pc made for gaming in the living room on the couch just like consoles. But they have the power and the advantages of the pc

I believe it will be revealed tonight and that Activision strategically placed the turtles in the Tony Hawk update to gather some attention, especially their designs. Even thought the game was rated last month in Brazil, with the leak of Platinum Games developing and the Australia rating happening in the same week as the awards, that has gathered even more attention and possibly restored faith in the turtles' gaming franchise so I think it's a no brainer that it will be shown tonight!

Yeah, I think he may be thinking about the PSX (Playstion Experience), which is also starting this weekend. Now, THAT actually is a Sony-related event. :D

Anyway...the last time a P* game was revealed at the VGAs/TGAs was when Revengeance was unveiled. That did well to generate some buzz for P* and Konami, so hopefully, Activision will see that history is repeated!

EDIT: Aghh, beaten.

Yeah, a bit of a downer. But to be fair, none of the "world premiers" were anything to write home about.

As far as the next opportunity to appear at a "big event" goes, we won't actually have to wait long: PSX is this weekend. Even if it's not an exclusive, it's still possible that it may still show up. Activision and Sony certainly have a healthy relationship with all the Destiny tie-ins, after all.

I could see it releasing earlier due to two reasons:

1) a Fall release would mean getting overshadowed by bigger releases at that time, not unlike how TF: Dev was swallowed up by bigger things released in the same time frame (like Activision's own Destiny Taken King)

2) If they released it earlier, like say, closer to when the second Bay-Turtles movie is set to arrive, the cross-promotion could help both products more effectively (even if they otherwise have nothing to do with each other)


And if nothing else it could be a highlight of what usually is a long summer drought.

But eh...this Activision, after all. They don't always do what makes sense.

True, though I'm sure Activision will have some movie tie in games, they had two for the first one, on Mobile and the 3DS.

And they likely do.

But if this particular game is meant to be the jumpstart for the IDW Turtles being introduced to a larger audience that may not even be aware that they exist, the opportunity to market them along with the regularly scheduled Bay-verse and Nick-verse stuff should be there.

It's kinda like how Capcom feels free to market a variety of RE video games in close proximity with the Anderson movie series, knowing full well they have nothing to do with the games besides having a few characters in common. But it often works because fans of one sometime roll over and take interest in the other.

Ah, well, in any case. I guess if Activision didn't announce it at either event, they're likely going to wait for the Christmas season to pass before doing so.

I'd imagine if they were going to announce it in full no later than January, that'd give them about 6 months to advertise it, assuming they really did want to have the game out close to when the next Bay-Turtles movie debuts next year.

The game has a 1 year development cycle and they likely started it after finishing Transformers. It'll probably still come out in the Fall because then they'd only have 6-8 months to complete the game which is nonsensical.

Just thank god this isn't a movie tie-in game, just imagine those hideous muscle bound Turtles with nostrils in a Platinum game is ridiculous. How would those hulking Turtles do martial arts anyway, they're not slim enough to be ninja's.

If the skins in the Tony Hawk game are what they're using, be glad they went with a "generic" TMNT design that could basically be based on anything.

The game has a 1 year development cycle and they likely started it after finishing Transformers. It'll probably still come out in the Fall because then they'd only have 6-8 months to complete the game which is nonsensical.

Actually, it's probably likely that P* may have either a) been working on TMNT in tandem with TF: Dev or b) started work on the TMNT game shortly as the TF: Dev project started to come to a close, and more personnel were moved over as one project ended and the other was under full swing.

What we know about PlatinumGame is that they're a large enough studio to be fielding multiple projects at once across several teams, and that those various teams definitely stay busy. For example: the team that's helping Nintendo with StarFox Zero is made up of the same bunch lead by Yusuke Hashimoto that had finished Bayonetta 2 a year ago (and perhaps not unlike what's going on with TMNT here, hints were dropped that their next target was StarFox, with all the tie-in costumes and easter eggs that ended up in said game).

Meanwhile, Kenji Saito (Director of MGR: Rev), not only has TF as another notch recently added on his belt, but also the upcoming Nier Automata. And maybe TMNT, as well, if he's directing that TOO in addition to his other workloads.

But that's likely the very reason P* is such a worthwhile commodity to big publishers like Nintendo, Activision and Square Enix. They've proven themselves quite efficient, cost-effective and being able to handle multiple projects at once that have almost always been at a certain level of quality (sans Korra, but we know the story behind that one).

This game is likely using the exact same engine add the transformers game. This isn't batman and they'll want to piggy bank on the marketing. It'll be a downloadable game and might have a bargain bin physical release. It'll be a good game because of platinum games not because Activision is giving them the resources to make our happen. I stand by my summer release date.

Plus they had a sting of mediocre batman games behind them and were probably desperate to break that trend.i think the question is if nick is smart enough to recognize that most gamers are over the whole process of rushing out games to meet the timing of a movie release and just want good well made games. And hopefully Activision learned enough from its last few tmnt games to put more resources and time behind this one. Imagine what out of the shadows might've been if red fly would have got more time and a AAA budget

I am hopping they take some features from the out of the shadows game when it comes to the turtles. I would love it if they were all on screen with you and you could switch on the fly. I would love online co-op as well. I really hope they add combo moves as well. I was not a huge fan of the combat in out of the shadows it was good, but I think Platinum is a great developer for TMNT and out of the shadows had some great ideas.

I wonder who is going to be the director, Kamiya one of the heads at platinum said he was a big TMNT fan and even based one of his characters Viewtiful Joe off the 90s TMNT movie turtles. He also owns turtles in time on the snes.

If the turtles ever got an open world game I'd rather it not be a gritty take, a more sci-fi heavy game would be more interesting.

The problem with TMNT is you have 4 characters and it's hard to have a game where it makes sense to only control one of them. The beat em up genre was perfect for the turtles but sadly that's no longer a viable game anymore and they're seen as repetitive. A fighting game is great for the turtles but not a traditional fighter, more of a Power Stone or Smash type of fighting game. Funnily enough they already made those two types of games as turtles games and they were both mediocre takes but if given another chance I think those two could work. The 2007 movie game had an interesting idea on how to make a single player game and still introduce the turtles.

I'm not good at playing MMOs since it requires that you spend a lot of time grinding your characters, and leveling them up to be able to fight high level enemies.

But I wouldn't mind a TMNT MMO, If they let you create all sorts of characters, plus having the options to pick which faction you want to play, be it with the Foot Clan, Purple Dragons, Mutants, Vigilantes or Aliens.

I definitely think it will be an action game similar to Transformers Devastation and Bayonetta. I just hope since there are not to many weapons to give the Turtles they replace weapon switching with Turtle switching. You start a combo with Leo and switch to Mikey and he leaps towards the enemy and you can continue your attack. All four turtles will always be on screen. I hope they include some sort of combo attacks where two or more turtles gang up on one enemy like in out of the shadows.

My dream would be that they also include bonus characters like Casey. But I would settle for some costumes.

If you don't count the very old DOS game, "Manhattan Missions", which took more cues from the Mirage comic than the 80s series. Or the various TMNT Tournament Fighter games that actually borrowed more from the Archie run.

Even though we will probably get an original cast, what previous tmnt voice actors would you have voice the turtles?

The 2K3/4Kids cast is still easily my favorite of the bunch. Even though they sound a bit old for characters that are supposed to be "15-16", they're still the voices that resonate with me the most.

So I hope they put a lot of care into this game, and make it the best TMNT ever, many have tried to do TMNT games, but failed at it.

With this being IDW-based I really hope it raises awareness of the IDW comics and helps more people get into that series. IDW TMNT gives casuals what they want in that all the 80's characters and villains are in it, but they also do a new spin on it and mix it with Mirage, 4kids, and Archie stories too.

IDW TMNT really is shaping up to be one of the best modern takes on the franchise. For the people who are also mixed between the original 80's cartoon, 2k3 cartoon and the Nick cartoon, IDW is like a perfect blend of all 3 combined into one.

The only thing I'd hope for though is not a beat em up like the almighty "Turtles in Time", I'd personally like the game to have elements of it but not to a large extent. Maybe a Ninja Gaiden style gameplay wise?

I wonder who is going to be the director, Kamiya one of the heads at platinum said he was a big TMNT fan and even based one of his characters Viewtiful Joe off the 90s TMNT movie turtles. He also owns turtles in time on the snes.

So yeah i think this game is in good hands.

Funny thing about that pic is that it was originally unearthed around the time that Revengeance was being hyped before release. That's going on 2-3 years ago, now. I'd be honestly surprised if they were working on this game for that long. And even more so if Saito was doing double duty on Transformers and this TMNT game, too!

But at the least, Saito has a largely solid resume of games. So I'd trust him being able to do well in both cases.

I'm surprised neither Bobby nor Tom Waltz have said anything about this. You think they would promote the game since its based on the IDW comics.

Probably because they legally can't talk about the game. It's one of the worst kept secrets in gaming by now (Bad Ninja! Ten Flips Now!), but it still has not been OFFICIALLY announced by Activision, yet. Notice how P* hasn't been talking about the game, either, and it's their own product, too!

Until we start seeing the first bit of PR and official shots/trailer, nobody can say anything. But I guess the folks at Activision are still on Holiday break or whatever...

Wayforward made a TMNT game? it sucked? Both are news to me, sadly the second one kills the first news :lol: Wayforward is one of my favorite developers as well and at least back in the day they used to make great licensed games of crap franchises.

Well isn't Platinum Games formed from ex-Capcom Clover people who was one of the fan's favorite developers at Capcom? And Platinum games are pretty well liked. What makes me think this will be a good game is I think it'll be in the vain of the Transformers game released last year which kind of went under the radar but is apparently a great game. That game was also leaked early, and came out shortly after being announced. I see this game being announced early next year Jan-Feb and coming out May or June. That doesn't mean it'll suck just don't the next big thing but I think all turtle fans will be pleased. You guys are deluding yourselves if you think this will be a fall title. I think it has a chance of being retail and downlodable, unlike Korra this franchise is much bigger but it'll be a bargain release at $40. And even if it's a game like Korra, I've heard a lot of recommendations and how it's a hidden gem. I'd still take a TMNT game that has mixed reviews over all the crap that has been released*

*granted I've not played any of the Activision TMNT games I'm just posting the general consensus.

Sadly this is the general consensus pretty much everywhere on TMNT though, people want the OT and anything that is different sucks. We saw these same reactions for 2k3, 2007 film, 2014 film. Hell the only reason the new trailer got such a positive reaction is because it had Rockstead/Beebop from the OT.

They've made two. Battle for the City (http://turtlepedia.wikia.com/wiki/Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Turtles:_Battle_for_the_City) was a plug and play that wasn't special, but it was neat. It was pretty good for what it was. I really enjoyed the spritework more than anything, but it wasn't bad overall.

Danger of the Ooze (http://turtlepedia.wikia.com/wiki/Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Turtles:_Danger_of_the_Ooze) was a "Metroidvania" that was supposed to lean heavier on the Metroid side, but I feel like it was just a disjointed mess of ideas. It was as if someone who last played a game in the genre a decade ago designed it from wispy memories.

And anyway, I'd still like to reiterate that I, and I'm pretty sure everyone else want this to be good. We've seen literally zero of the game itself though and deets are slowly leaking... so I'd really rather be pleasantly surprised if it turns out to be good, than be disappointed if it doesn't.

Having played and beaten it like two weeks ago, I think it's kind of the most boring TMNT game I've ever played. Like, it was colorful, and the graphics were pretty good, and it reminded me in some ways of the original NES game, and it functioned well, for the most part. But the lack of variety in environments and enemy types made all the exploring and backtracking more like a chore than a fun experience. You're mostly fighting the same enemies at the end that you are in the beginning, so other than opening previously-locked doors that end up looping back into places you've already been to, providing little else but a shortcut, there's no real feeling of progress. Some of the advance points were hard to make out, too; I triggered a few by accident, simply by jumping Up in a room I had no idea otherwise how to advance through, and it just so happened there was an invisible upward door in that exact spot. And since the game world is so needlessly expansive - although I appreciate how they tried to give the game a sense of grand scale despite its small characters - losing a Turtle and having to go rescue him is needlessly frustrating. I almost always just restarted from the last Checkpoint, rather than waste an entire hour backtracking across the entire goddamn game.

It had its moments but for such a short game, most of it felt like a grind. People knock the 2K3 games but they were better than that one, at least the first one was. I wouldn't say it's bad but there's not a lot to it at all and it's boring.

Exactly my thoughts. I wanted to enjoy it because it was more fun and entertaining than the first Nick TMNT game, but in the end having to practically start all over whenever you lose all your turtles no matter how far you got into the game was just too damn frustrating. I know the game had checkpoints, but it seemed whenever you continue it throws you into some random part of the game which had you basically go through the whole game just to find exactly where you were when you originally died.

I have no faith until the game is out. Every company that has stepped forward for a new TMNT game has failed, regardless of who it was or how big a fan the developer was or blah the **** blah. WayForward was the final straw. Will believe it when I see it.

I don't know about failed exactly. It's not like the recent games are unplayable messes or anything. They're just kind of forgettable or easily ignored by everybody. Which is frustrating as hell because you can see the developers had some good ideas they just dropped the ball in execution. I feel the same as you though. I want this the be the arkham asylum of tmnt games but I refuse to get my hopes up. The last time I did it turned out the game was a mobile download based on those platnum dunes monsters. I'm not putting myself though that again.

Part of the problem is the recent games were based on the Nick series and not much thought was put into the games.

a new game based on the IDW comics will most likely get a better reception, since the previous games were too kidified.

Given how there's little info about this new game, I wouldn't be surprise if it turns out to be a download only game.

As far as "the Arkham of TMNT games", I'm almost positive that "Out of the Shadows" is as good as it's ever going to get. I know some people loved it and some hated it, but it's probably the closest to that kind of TMNT game we're ever going to see, as far as scale and execution.

It's a kids' property. They're never going to put AAA time, money, or effort into a kids' game. As much as I wasn't satisfied with Danger of the Ooze, it was also pretty much exactly what I was expecting. That's about how low the bar is, now.

I expect this new one will be a vast improvement over other recent games - at least I hope - but I'll settle for something that isn't boring, frustrating, or overly-repetitive. I'm not expecting to have my mind blown, as it is I'm already happy it's not another Nick game. That's a good start.

slingtheory

I don't know leo maybe we'll get lucky this time. With the last couple of games being nick based and aimed at kids and performing the way they did maybe Activision is getting the picture that there's money to be made in aiming at the older fan base. If they can do it for the transformers why not tmnt.

Treated me fine. Been a while though but I had fun with it. I could never meet most of the critics halfway on it because it seemed most of the criticism was about bugs I never experienced. There's not a lot to it and it's kind of easy, but it's a good try at making TMNT work as a 3D action brawler. The switching on the fly between all four Turtles was clunky but worked pretty well on the whole, considering that's not something you see happen a lot in the games they ripped off. Points for trying and all that, they had a lot of good ideas.

I'm like no, it's not perfect, but it's miles ahead of any other modern TMNT games and all the problems with it are things that can only be solved by more time and more money, and frankly, no TMNT game is going to get a huge budget and a development timetable of "take your time and get it right", that simply isn't going to happen. They're always going to be budget titles made in a panic. That said, it's a miracle OotS is as good as it is.

I know I'm all about "people need higher standards" but I'm also a realist. With something like a TMNT game, people do need to adopt a certain lowering of standards or simply not bother with the games. They'll never legitimately do the "Arkham" of TMNT games. That was OotS, people can take that or not but it's as close as it's ever going to get to what a lot of them say they want.

Meanwhile, this new one looks pretty good, but I have to wonder already how people are going to receive it. Just because people always seem to have their hopes up way too high for a TMNT game and then get cranky when it doesn't meet expectations. Frankly, even Danger of the Ooze exceeded my expectations because I go into most new TMNT games expecting them to suck and it's their job to prove otherwise. :lol:
---------------------------

One thing I was pondering that's kind of silly, but I wonder if the new game will use alternate TMNT skins besides the IDW ones. Just because A, too many people online saying "It's not the 80s Turtles? PASS", and B, lots of comic book games are doing that lately and it just adds a little something extra. I don't honestly think they will, but it couldn't hurt. You get to play the game for a couple more hours to unlock skins and the crybabies who only like 80s TMNT can play as them if they want, everybody wins. They probably won't or maybe even can't do it but it would be neat if they did. I mean it makes sense, y'know?

You have a point, but I think it says a lot that TMNT USED to be a brand that were synonymous with what were considered good, if not great games, which is where the "higher standards" stem from. But a decade filled with lackluster Konami entrants, so-so Ubi efforts and borderline terrible Activision shovelware has all but alienated the goodwill the brand used to enjoy in that entertainment medium.

P* being attached to this game is why most people are even bothering to keep this game on their radar, let alone that this is the first time in quite a while that a TMNT game has generated enough buzz to make the rounds on the likes of mainstream gaming websites and/or not immediately be slammed with "And WTF is this?". And to think, this is with the game not even being officially announced yet (Activision, where you at?).

So, needless to say, I can understand that expectations are a bit high. And if they can deliver a game that meets or beats the kind of quality that went into TF: Dev, I think it'll go a long way to help establish TMNT getting their street cred back in the gaming sphere...which is likely why Activision wanted P* on a TMNT game, in the first place.

One thing I was pondering that's kind of silly, but I wonder if the new game will use alternate TMNT skins besides the IDW ones.

They probably won't or maybe even can't do it but it would be neat if they did. I mean it makes sense, y'know?

I wouldn't mind it, but I guess it would depend on just how much time and content they'd be able to generate for such a game. Multiple skins should, ideally imo, be the kind of thing they'd only bother with if they really have a) done everything they could otherwise for the main game and thus, b) be able to go wild with it.

Having only a grand total of three extra skins for TF: Dev was a downer. And of course, they were preorder DLC that you'd otherwise have to pay for.

I'm also a bit salty that Activision never honored my preorder and sent me my DLC code, but that's another thing altogether...

Hopefully, this cheevo list will put some people at ease. It sounds like it at least has a psuedo-openworld with some traversal/stealth elements in the mix, plus has online co-op and some type of real-time switching with the turtles. Not to mention it sounds like it has the kind of robust combat/movement engine you'd expect from a P* game, if you could literally find a way to stay off the ground for a mile.

It really doesn't sound like a Korra/cheap downloadable thing, at all.

WINGF**KINGNUT?! YOOOOOOOOOOO. That's sick! & no, TC, he has not yet appeared in IDW's comics, neither have Mega Krang or Krangdroids. Spoilerific! Maybe this is just inspired by IDW rather than being wholly based on its existing material. Either way, the hype is ever increasing!

Yeah I could see them using the art style from IDW, and the game being loosely based on the 80s cartoon.

I wonder which version of Shredder are they gonna use, the 80s version or the IDW version?

I'd assume most if not all of the designs will come from IDW, given the turtle models & promo art match Santolouco's style (fitting, giving he's the one who drew it :tlol:).

I wouldn't be surprise if it's the IDW Shredder, but acting like the 80s version.

To be fair, he has had a lot of FW styled dialogue in the series. Typical supervillain monologues & whatnot. :tlol: I don't think the incompetence & goofiness would carry over though, this seems to be aimed at an older audience.

It will be the IDW version based on the cover art.

I don't know. That cover art definitely looks idw styled but the krangdroids and mega krang almost sound like something out of the Nick show. I'm starting to think maybe this might be it's own thing and santolouco was just involved in the character design. Which wouldn't be a bad thing but I was really hoping that alopex and hob would be involved and get voice actors and all that. But hey sounds like it might be somewhat open world and if that's true that would be awesome. I'm cautiously getting hyped for this

granted the krangdroids might be more something along the line of IDW's version of the Utrominators mayhaps even something akin to a videogame only story.

Look at some of the arrogance going on in this thread, especially the last few pages:

So much bashing of the various TMNT universes. Ignorance.

I feel sorry for Nostalgia fans...they will never feel experience TMNT at it's most maximum potential like Soul's Winter.

Even Korra got an announcement at a big event being SDCC 2014 if I remember correctly.

If we go by that, than it confirms that the game is most likely "an open-world with RPG elements".

Me too! Looks to be a promising game. Judging from the achievements it could be kinda open world-ish with all the distance you can walk.

Can't wait!!

Krang, Bebop, Rocksteady, and....Wingnut? The Technodrome gang connected like in the 1987 cartoon and TMNTA or in alignment as seen in IDW? Where does the original Mutanimals member fit in? Slash involved as an anti-hero or dimwitted villain?am interested in seeing where this is going.

I doubt there will be much of a "story" involved in this. Just the Turtles fighting against established enemies in a generic plot.

I dunno. The fact that they apparently bothered to get Waltz on board for writing says to me that we may be in for something a bit more unique than just a typical throw-away story.

It could be like Transformers Devastation: a pretty straight forward yarn that still has plenty of throwbacks to its source canon, and even still ties into the main plot in some way. Or failing that, now that we know that "Deviations" are a thing for the IDW Turtles, maybe the game could slide into that type of role.

The main thing I'm interested in seeing about is how this game will handle in-game lore entries. Judging by how well P*'s games usually are at this, it may be a great way to get more factoids of these characters and their world that haven't been disseminated from the comic alone.

For what it's worth, he was penned to do the Bayturtles game too, & there wasn't all that much story going on there from what I read.

Anything but Nick and Bayturtles. Yuck and Double-Yuck. This is like a godsend.

To clarify, there's nothing really wrong with the Nick designs, but it's far from my favorite version, I'm sick of seeing it, and the games based on it have been lackluster. So the more distance between that and this, the better.
