Activision and PlatinumGames have officially revealed the trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan.

And, while we can’t speak for the gameplay, the graphics look like they stepped off the page… here’s hoping it can be as good as the current TV Series.

“The Heroes in a Half Shell are taking back the streets of New York, and they’re doing it with the kind of style that only PlatinumGames can deliver. In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael combine their unique skillsets to take on Bebop, Rocksteady, Shredder, and a posse of other iconic bosses.”

Fans will be able to play through the game on their own, switching between the Turtles as they choose, or online with up to three friends as they fight through legions of the Foot clan and more. Each Turtle is equipped with their own unique moves and when things are looking bleak, they can come together for a team attack.

“We’ve put a lot more into this game than just combat,” game director Eiro Shirahama says. “You can climb walls, glide along wires, and there’s a lot of freedom of movement that ties into the action. With this game, players will be able to feel like they’re the Turtles themselves, running, grinding, and gliding around NYC to prevent crimes.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan will debut this summer for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. Check out the announcement trailer below!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
