New TMNT Game for 2023?

https://www.nintendolife.com/news/20...s-game-in-2023

We keep saying that 2022 is the Year of the Turtle — with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge and The Cowabunga Collection releasing this past summer. But it looks like Nickelodeon and Paramount want to keep the celebrations going in 2023, as the studios are reportedly planning a brand new TMNT game.

Reported on by NickALive! (via ResetEra and TheGamer), a choice quote has been spotted in the September 2022 edition of Toy World Magazine. On page 170, under the 'Paramount Consumer Products & Experiences' section, the very last line says that Paramount, who is the parent company of Nickelodeon, "will launch a brand-new original Triple-A game in 2023" based on the Heroes in Half Shells. Rad!

That's all we know so far! We don't even know what genre, what platforms, or even what look the game will have. The Turtles have traditionally starred in beat 'em ups, but this may be a chance for them to branch out. We won't know anything until an official announcement, so keep your ears close to the sewers.

Regardless of the lack of a proper, official announcement, a new Turtles game in 2023 does make a lot of sense! Next year, we're getting a brand new animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, Mutant Mayhem, produced by Seth Rogan and directed by Gravity Falls writer and The Mitchells vs. the Machines co-director Jeff Rowe.

If this turns out to be true, I'm hoping its set in its own universe like PS4 Spider-Man or the Arkham games. Kind of burnt out on all the OT stuff.

Imagine a new big game set in the Mirage universe and based on a new story by Eastman and Laird.

I mean it could be anything. The IDW-inspired TMNT game from a few years ago wasn't received well, so I wouldn't jump for celebration yet.

Called that after the reception to Shredder’s Revenge.

Expect an animated version of The Last Ronin in the next few years as well.

Maybe it’s a Rise of the TMNT game.
The movie and series hashtag have been trending on twitter almost daily by the thousands, people really want more.

Probably. Deserved. It moved the meter about as much as a comic can in today's market.

Its possible that this new TMNT game will be based on Mutant Mayhem since that's coming out the same year.

Or maybe they can do another Shredder's Revenge, Given how successful that game was, People may want more of that style of game.

Agreed. It just makes sense.
It’s got the prestige of being on the New York Times Best Seller list as well now, which is probably a lot of “firsts” for the brand, IDW, etc

It also seems like Viacom/Nick is going all in on turtles these last few years, which we are starting to see come to a head now, between all the comic events, video game releases, movie news, and the toy lines exploding even more.

I mean, Seth Rogen probably wasn’t cheap. Not like the guy is desperate for work, despite how any of us feel about it him. That’s an investment.

Now there seems to be follow-up to all the success the brand has been having as of late:
Neca line expanding further than any of us imagined, TLR becoming the “Ronin Verse” with multiple spin-offs, and now the Retro/budget games have proven there is a market for AAA TMNT games, which Viacom is immediately following up on.

It just seems like the brand is leaning into it’s strengths, and exploiting all markets, quite successfully, for the first time since the sale.
It’s no longer hard to imagine them recognizing that an animated adaption would sell very well. Literally, just keep following up on what works - it’s working.

_______________


Anyway, as for a new game, I’d love for them to lean into an RPG-type game, but I’m not holding my breath.

I think developers will always be inclined to take advantage of the fact that there are four main characters that can be utilized in multiplayer. I’d like to see it utilized in single-player, like we’ve seen in games like Final Fantasy or even Arkham Knight.

The retro-style games could continue on and satisfy that multiplayer itch.

Other then that, I’d be open to another fighting game, if it had a great developer, but the competition is pretty tight, so I wouldn’t bet on that either.

I just don’t think we’ve ever really had a great single-player experience in the world of TMNT. Something I can be excited to sink my teeth into all by myself after work. The type of AAA experience that you get addicted to and think about playing while you’re at work. Big budget, story-focused, deep combat. That’s what I want.

Man, I read the book and liked parts of it, but a lot of it also felt pretty pedestrian. I'm not a huge comics guy anyway, but I have gone back a couple of times and re-read some of the Walking Dead stuff, whereas I don't think I'll ever reread this one.

Anyway, if we get a new game, it would be great for some actual stealth to be built into it. More simple button-mashing combat doesn't hold a lot of appeal.

I would consider Shredder's Revenge a AAA game, The amount of work put into it, The attention to details, That is something you normally would see done with AAA games in general.

Yeah, the budget and scope just isn't there.

Being a AAA game is not about quality. It's a great game though and totally excels at what it sets out to do.

Just saying that The Last Ronin would make a Arkham styled game. Not a straight adaption of course but the basic premise of the last surviving turtle returning to a closed off dystopian Manhattan. The main campaign would obviously be taking down Hiroto/Shredderbut you could have side missions involving most TMNT villains like Baxter, Leatherhead and The Rat King. Also like Arkham was a more adult version of Batman TAS a Last Ronin game could be darker than the comic was allowed to get. If there really is a AAA game in the works I'm just putting this out there as a road to take.
