I can see a TMNT game having some puzzle & mystery solving components between combat. Maybe there could be something like Legend of Zelda: Four Swords, in the way it handles multiplayer to engage levels of the game (which still work in a single player mode)

Again to do something like those Batman games would be costly. No developer wishes currently to spend that kind of money.

It's still IDW so it's still only going to appeal to fans of one iteration of TMNT.

Well if we're talking major studio game development, any game is going to cost a significant amount of money. The initial investment shouldn't prevent a game with a sound concept from being made. People don't want to play a TMNT that may or may not be good just because it features the TMNT, people want to play a good game that features the TMNT.

And as far as IDW versus Fred Wolf, the Fred Wolf cartoon's time is over. FW still appeals to certain collectors who appreciate the nostalgia and are willing to spend a lot of their available income on it, but most people who are fans of the TMNT are more casual; they may be willing to spend a portion of their money on TMNT merchandise from the various iterations of the franchise but not exclusively FW. Therefore if a game developer were to make plans on creating a TMNT game they would be better to have a wider appeal and tap into a wider share of the market by appealing to fans of TMNT in general, rather than fans of FW exclusively, which IDW's iteration of the franchise does very well. It's not as dark as Mirage but not as goofy as Fred Wolf, it takes inspiration from almost all iterations of the franchise it can. It's very middle-of-the-road, but in a good way in my opinion.

I know you have a hate boner for the IDW series despite never reading it but it contains plenty of Fred Wolf influence for you & the other casuals to cream over.

Have you seen the reaction of the TMNT's Injustice inclusion? And the buzz around it on the internet the days afterwards? You mean to tell me no eyebrowns where raised by anyone on any of the WB studios after that? People are dying for an Arkham style game for the TMNT (not an Arkham with a TMNT skin, but something of the same scope and love) and if the Injustice deal proves sucessefull and if the Insomniac Spider-Man game does as well I'm sure WB would see the oportunity to invest is something like that for the TMNT sometime soon, heck, who knows, maybe they're already working on some concepts without anyone knowing just in case.
