TMNT: Smash-Up

http://gonintendo.com/?p=65857

This time they actually have people who've worked on fighting games developing it. Sounds promising.

New TMNT game for the Wii in 2009

http://gonintendo.com/?p=65857

Not a whole lot is known right now other than it's a four player fighter with people working on it who worked on Brawl and some folks from Team Ninja. Of course, that's enough for me to want it play it immediately.

Edit: I literally checked a few moments ago when I went to post about this, somehow I missed the other thread. Since mine came second could a mod please delete this? Thanks!

Ha! I KNEW this wasn't canceled! AND it's a versus fighter (my favourite genre) made by people with high pedigree in versus fighters. F*** yeah!

Mad World just bumped to number two on my most wanted games for next year.

Oh, right. I remember now wondering why he said that because this one wasn't showing up in my new posts search. My evil, yo.

I hope this means this game will cover several of the TMNT universes. This is one medium where I welcome crossovers of this kind. It would be a great way to bring back Slash.

This has tons of potential to be awesome,

Ninjister you should have totally taken on the bet I made since you would have won and you'd own my sig for 6 months

though in this case it was a win-win for me, since even if I lost the bet it meant a new turtles game

Ha ha, 'tis all right. I probably wouldn't have thought of anything to do with your sig anyway.

I'm totally freaking stoked for this. I'm checking the rounds on every game news site from here until launch for more info.

This sounds interesting. Ubisoft doing this makes me happy - I've had my hopes of a Splinter-Cell style tmnt game... I just hope they keep out the annoying catchphrases.

I would have actually rather have seen Konami had done a Metal Gear Solid-esque TMNT game than Ubisoft have one like Splinter Cell. Splinter Cell is just a wee bit too dull for my tastes >.<

I'll admit I've never played MGS... but I'll take your word for it.

I don't understand is this a 2.5d fighter or a smashbros like game?

Even though concept started in oct of 07 and development in jan 08 if it doesn't even have a title or screenshots I really hope it doesnt end up being rushed after waiting all these years for the 25th and just get a inferior product.

Hopefully story mode is something well put together and not half assed and since its not bound by any license i really hope for some really cool stuff out of this or i'll be disappointed.

It'd be cool if it was named tournament fighters and Mikey was in the cover since he was the only one to get jewed in the boxart from the previous game

In fact even though Tournament fighters was mostly based on the old toon, it had influences of everything from mirage to archie so i'd definitely like it to be somewhat like it in mood. Again I really hope they take advantage of that it isn't based on a movie/show. Even though it'll be rated E i'm also hoping for it to be as dark as it can while having some humor of course referencing the old toon, a mashup of all the universes.

I'm not too picky, as long as it has cool characters/story/mood and a decent engine I'll love the game. It doesn't have to be the next Street Fighter or Smash bros.

Smash Bros. IS a 2.5 fighter. It's classified under the sub-genre of "action fighter" or "platform fighter" in the standard versus fighter genre.

It's 2.5 D because it's 3D on a 2D plane. Definitely sounds really cool, especially if they can throw whatever they want in there, in terms of characters. I'd love it if they had alternate costumes. Giving all the characters Mirage-style skins would be amazing.
