I mean its ok that someone is a hardcore fan but wanting someone else to be fan is a bit strange , just let people be, instead have a laugh when kid misspell turtles names or say they know all 3 of them cause theyre biggest fans.
Its not worthy to expect anything from anyone, in the end it only makes you sadder inside and only you care about it so... why even bother, instead change your expectations to make you happy cause its all that matters.
I had a bit of a problem with casuals as well in the past but now, its totally opposite, it just cracks me up

And they probably just remember the first movie, which is what most casual fans think about.

It's weird to see casual fans get so excited about TMNT...yet they never watch/read anything in the TMNT franchise. It's almost like some people like the concept of Ninja Turtles more than anything that has the Turtles in them. Do they read the Mirage/Archie/IDW comics? Of course not. Did they watch the 2k3 or Nick cartoons? Most likely not. Do they remember anything of the original cartoon other than, "Mikey says Cowabunga?" probably not.

I've noticed most people in real life who say, "They love TMNT" actually barely know anything about it and don't follow the franchise at all.
I don't think it matters much if the people in that video are up on turtle lore or not.What matters to me is that a group of grown people seem legitimately excited to see the tmnt show up somewhere in 2017. Especially when that somewhere is a game that features some of the oldest and most influential comic book characters of all time.Even if everyone there only has nostalgic memories of the Turtles(and theres no way we could know that at least some of these guys haven't read the comics or watched any of the newer cartoons) the reaction shows that there's still excitement for the franchise from people old enough to drive and that's great to see.
Hopefully somebody with some pull saw that video and thought to themselves "hey if they react like this when we make them dlc in a fighting game i wonder what they'll do if we put them in a decent game of there own." I've got my fingers crossed for that anyway.
And by the way you've got to remember that every hardcore fan started as a casual until something caught their attention and made them want to go deeper. For all we know this could end up being somebody's tmnt gateway drug.

So are we going to get a gameplay trailer before TMNT hits? Aren't they coming out next month?

Apparently Injustice 2's DLC characters have been released on the second Tuesday of every month, so looks like we'll be seeing a February 13th release date for the TMNT. I would suspect a trailer would come the week prior, but guess we'll have to see!
