Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze announced for Xbox 360, PS3 and 3DS
Activision today announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze, a side-scrolling action-adventure game which bridges the gap between season 2 and season 3 of Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated program.
Admittedly, I've not once watched the show. Heck, I haven't watched Nickelodeon since the good ol' days of SNICK. But I suppose the game actually sounds pretty cool -- "blending classic 2D fighting and platforming gameplay with the 3D art direction of the TV series." According to Activision, Danger of the Ooze brings together new locations, allies, and threats.
"The game quickly heats up as Shredder, Tiger Claw and a new army of mutants threaten the streets of New York, forcing Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo to take action into their own hands. The game’s distinguishing feature is its vast, interconnected, non-linear game world, which rewards exploration and creative thinking. Powers, upgrades and equipment scattered across New York and Dimension X opens up new environments to traverse, secrets to discover and bosses to battle," a brief description of the game reads.
Each of the four Turtles can be swapped between freely throughout the game, and each offers his own unique combat rhythm with specialized stats, strengths, and skills. Combat is said to be fast-paced, emphasizing the martial arts prowess through attack and item combos, counters and finishers. However, there are also tools for stealth-based approaches, should you want to avoid combat.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze is expected to release in fall 2014 for Xbox 360, PS3, and 3DS.
