Screenshots for the unannounced TMNT game from Platinum Games, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, leak online, showing a cel-shaded art style.
The evidence keeps mounting for the unannounced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan game that is reportedly in development by Platinum Games. The latest is the most convincing yet, as a number of screenshots from the rumored game have now leaked online.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan screenshots show off a cel-shaded art style that is reminiscent of the work Platinum Games did with Transformers: Devastation. It seems to draw inspiration from the 2003 cartoon series in terms of character design, and looks to be a 3D brawler, as previously speculated.
Concrete details on the game are still hard to come by, but the screenshots seem to confirm that players will, as expected, take control of the titular turtles: Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael. Bebop and Rocksteady are also confirmed thanks to the screenshots, as well as the Foot Ninja clan. The archenemy of the turtles, Shredder, is also likely a shoe-in for the game since the Foot Ninja are his minions across various TMNT media.

At this point, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game from Platinum Games is basically a guarantee. There’s just too much evidence that confirms its existence, such as the Australian classification for it that originally let the cat out of the bag, the leaked TMNT achievement list, and now these screenshots. There’s little reason for Activision to keep the game a secret at this point, so hopefully we see a trailer soon.
A trailer could potentially confirm other rumored features for the game, such as potential co-op play and open world elements. It would also be interesting to see the appealing art style on display in the screenshots in action. A trailer could also bring with it a release date for the game, which may not be far off considering all this leaked material.
TMNT has had a proud gaming history, and the franchise is in capable hands with Platinum Games. Fans of the series should be happy to have another game to look forward to after the general disappointment that was the last TMNT game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze. In the meantime, enjoy the leaked screenshots, and keep your fingers crossed that Activision reveals more about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan soon.
Platinum’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan game is not officially announced by Activision, but expect it to release for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, as well as possibly other platforms.
