If you could only pick one, and it absolutely would come to fruition and hit the stores in, say, a year from now, which would it be?

A fighting game by NRS, or an Arkham-style game by Rocksteady?

The game would include characters from all incarnations, but have a unique art style. Throw in the obligatory MK guest character and you're good to go.

Which one? Please say Scorpion, please say Scorpion... The most perfect mental image of his intro dialogue with Shredder just popped into my mind:

Scorpion: Get over here!
Shredder: The Shredder goes where he pleases!

Heh, this is almost something that could probably carry a topic of its own!

A VERY tough choice but...I think while there's definitely a part of me yearning for TMNT Tournament Fighters to have a worthy successor after all these years, I know in my heart that the TMNT brand needs an "Arkham" game more.

As much hype as the guys appearing in Injustice has produced, it's great for guys, like me, who already love fighting games. It's a bit more diminished for those aren't, and have no interest in playing competitive games. A TMNT-focused fighter would only generate more in that vein. Therefore, a "TMNT Arkham" probably would generate even more interest. And hell, I think if there was any place (besides IDW's comics) where a more "mature" TMNT could shine independently from whatever cartoon or movie Nickelodeon wants to sell to kids, it'd be an Arkham game.

...Then after that's a resounding success, bring on the designated fighting game spin off!

Seriously, no Slash, Rat King, Leatherhead, Rahzar, etc?
I think you are missing the point of a dream roster.

But, you know, to be frank, the chances of at least one Triceraton making it in are far greater in the fighting game. I'm sure the "Arkham" game would focus on Shredder and the Foot, or at least the first one in the franchise would. They're by far the most recognizable antagonists in the franchise.

I know. And that's what makes it even harder for me. Either of which would make me insanely happy, but if I was somehow made the decision maker between these two choices?

I probably would have to consider what I think to be for the greater good of the brand itself.

...And then just make sure a full-fledged Triceraton Invasion would be the focus of the sequel 2.5 years later!

Such a game could definitely work. It's sad that video game and live action adaptations always stick to Shredder and Krang as the big bads. The Triceratons could work just as well, especially if you sprinkle in Bishop as a third party.

The amazing and exotic universe of TMNT is hardly tapped out after the Foot have been dealt with. I'm still waiting on a live action Leatherhead myself...

Mozar or Zog are the two most recognizable Triceratons.

Thank you! Though either him or Sub-Zero are really the most obvious picks... I mean, it's a (hypothetical) game about ninjas. It stands to reason that the guest MK character should be a ninja him/herself.
