retr0ial: Will Mutants in Manhattan be The Best TMNT Game in Years?

As you may know, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have had a HUGE comeback in recent years. They’ve had a new TV series, a critically panned but financially successful movie reboot with a sequel on the way, and even spin-offs for the TV series planned! However, there has been one medium that our favourite heroes in a half shell have been struggling to find propesperity in for what has been years now: video games.

Ever since the release of Tournament Fighters, it seems that every single TMNT that has come after has failed to live up to it. Various titles have ranged from being just decent, to painfully mediocre, to…well…I’ll let these do the talking.

However, just as it seemed that people had given up on the idea of the property delievering a great game again…along came Platinum.


Yes, the team behind the two critically acclaimed Bayonetta games, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and The Wonderful 101 had singed a deal with Activison to develop a game based off of the property. Prior to this, however, Platinum had actually worked with Activision in the past. In 2014 and 2015 respectively, they developed the not-so-great Legend of Korra, and the mostly positively recieved Transformers Devestation. If you ask me, I honestly think the results so far look incredible – the comic book style visuals are striking but dazzling, the action looks insanely frantic and fun, and it just gushes with TMNT charm in every way. Should Activision not rush it, we could very well possibly have what we have been clamoring for years: The best TMNT game yet.
