Few crime fighting teams come close to matching the prestige and recognition of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not only do the Ninjutsu-trained reptiles have a successful television show currently airing on Nickelodeon, but a brand new live-action film is on the precipice of its release in theatres. Yes, it’s truly a great time to be a TMNT fan, and now Paramount has just announced another surprise for those waiting on more from the beloved heroes in a half shell.
To coincide with the impending release of the aforementioned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film (which debuts on August 8, 2014), Paramount has released a brand new game for mobile users based on the escapades of Master Splinter’s pupils.
Starring the infamous foursome of Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello, players will be able to pick up the respective weapon of their favorite turtle and beat up on a menagerie of villains. Whilst pummelling criminal factions, mutants or boss characters, the turtles will be able to upgrade several aspects of their fighting styles. There’s even a something called a ‘Turtle Power’ attack that will likely obliterate any foe that dares to look directly at the bandana-donning face of one of the sewer-dwelling protagonists.
There are two modes of play featured within the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Story Mode and Survival Mode. Each mode offers fans a different angle to approach the combat-heavy content from. For starters, the Story Mode featured within the new TMNT mobile game takes place prior to the events of the blockbuster film — effectively showing how the turtles gained their ninja skills. Meanwhile, Survival Mode throw players into a frenzy of enemy waves that’ll continue to pound participants until they’ve been beaten down and left unable to continue.
There’s also the option to participate in in-game challenges and set high scores for friends to take on, which sounds like a bodacious offering for competitive gamers looking for a little replay value.
With Comic-Con 2014 now underway, there’s likely to be even more news on the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, so stay tuned to Screen Rant for any coverage that emerges from Paramount’s panel. As for Turtles in regards to gaming, keep it parked on Game Rant.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is available now for iOS, Android and Amazon devices.
