Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows will not be the only game coming out this year. Activision will be publishing based on the Mirage Studios comic; a video game, simply titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles based on the 2012 animated series, will be heading for Xbox 360, Wii and 3DS “this holiday”.

As with many other games based on the franchise, this looks to be a four player beat-em-up, using a cel-shading to imitate the TV show’s artstyle. The game takes place between the first season, which is about to finish, and the upcoming second season, and will bridge the gap between the two.

This isn’t the first time news of this particular game had been revealed- a while back, a certain set of action figures based on the show featured a cheat code for the game, which unlocked “Tiny Turtles”. As has been revealed now, the game would be released on Wii, Xbox 360 and 3DS – and apparently “available now”.

As a fan of the TV show, I’ll admit that I have some excitement for this – especially considering how I thought that Out of the Shadows would be the game to accompany the TV show, which wouldn’t feel right, given it’s “realistic” artstyle. However, I’ll remain cautious – but only because Activision hasn’t had the best of luck with TV franchises recently *coughSurvivalInstinctcough*.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be releasing on Xbox 360, Wii and 3DS “this holiday”, while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows will be releasing on PSN, XBLA and Steam on August 28 2013.
