Boo hoo, guys! Thanks to the popularity of the animated movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, which shook Rotten Tomatoes’ audience and reviewer ratings, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are experiencing a comeback.

It looks like the heroes in a half shell aren’t going to be out of the mainstream spotlight anytime soon.

Nickelodeon and Paramount are developing a sequel and a two-season series for Paramount+ in an effort to capitalize on the recent excitement. However, the turtles are not going to stop at the big screen. They are breaking into the video game industry with a new game that will be out in 2024.

The game is a tie-in with the Mutant Mayhem universe and is published by Outright Games, which has a large library of family-friendly licensed games like Peppa Pig: World Adventures and Transformers: Battlegrounds.

It’s clear now that The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem was successful on all fronts.

Placing players in the shoes of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo as they battle a fresh mutant menace in New York City, the game takes place months after the events of the movie. According to a press release, the gameplay combines “energetic ninja teamwork” with a “funny story,” but the identity of the game’s developers is still unknown.

Co-Owner of Outright Games Stephanie Malham expressed delight about the partnership with Nickelodeon, saying the game will increase the global exposure of one of the “most enduring and beloved franchises in the world.”

All of this seems like the stuff a Turtle fan would adore, but how is the game’s graphics? In an effort to create expansive cityscapes and sewer lairs of New York that are as colorful and lively as the turtles themselves, it will appropriate the “bold, painterly art style” from the movie. Excitement for the upcoming release is increased by Doug Rosen, SVP of Games and Emerging Media at Paramount, who highlighted how the film’s distinct art style makes it an ideal choice for video game adaptation.

We’re still curious if the TMNT: The Last Ronin video game adaptation will change things up from the source material.

It’s interesting to note that the events of Mutant Mayhem, the impending sequel, and the upcoming 2D animated series Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles all fall inside the game’s timeline. A carefully thought-out expansion of the Ninja Turtles universe is indicated by this multi-platform, layered storytelling strategy, which offers plenty of room for character and world-building growth.

Although further details are still awaited, the game is anticipated to work on both PC and unnamed consoles. Considering the track record of Outright Games, it is probable that the game will be accessible across several platforms, including the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. While the price-to-playtime ratio has been a source of concern for some users, the company’s previous products have garnered favorable reviews.

The Ninja Turtles themselves are pixelated heroes who existed before this planned project. Retro games such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time and the original TMNT arcade game are still highly regarded. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, which brought the arcade beat-em-up action to current platforms, was another modern installment in the franchise that came out last year. Lastly, it’s thought that the Turtle Brothers will visit Fortnite after this.

Let’s just hope that the video game sequel to TMNT: Mutant Mayhem is priced well.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are making a comeback in popular culture with a sequel movie, a Paramount+ series, and now a video game as well as a video game adaption of TMNT: The Last Ronin in the works. Who the new mutant villain in the game will be is the sole piece of the puzzle that remains to be solved. Awaiting the next adventure of their beloved heroes in a half-shell, fans can only speculate while singing the famous theme tune till then. Turtle might!
