Activision and PlatinumGames are bringing us a new "TMNT" game! "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan" will be a 4 player co-op experience for Xbox One, Playstation 4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC via Steam. So far the trailer and screenshots look like we'll be seeing Bebop, Rocksteady, Armaggon and of course, Shredder.
The story for this new game is written by Tom Waltz who is writing the current IDW run of "TMNT". It is completely original and will not be following the storyline of the comics. If you aren't reading that comic, I can guarantee you're missing out.

The press release has a bit more to say about the reason for PlatinumGames developing this title:
PlatinumGames’ flair for stylish visuals and fluid combat are on full display in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. Fast-paced, team-based brawling will challenge gamers of all skill levels. Each Turtle has a distinctive combat play style and can be customized with a unique set of Ninjutsu moves, combat items and special bonuses.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan also features gorgeous, cel-shaded art design, with an original story from prolific author of IDW Publishing’s acclaimed ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, Tom Waltz.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is expected to arrive this summer as a retail and digital release on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC via Steam.
I hope you're ready for this summer! You can catch the trailer below!
