Heroes in a half-shell!

Konami recently announced that it was updating the SNES classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time for modern consoles, with the XBLA version being displayed to all and sundry.

A WiiWare version also seemed to be on the cards, but a recent press release from Ubisoft (which is working with Konami on the game as it currently owns the rights to the Turtle video game license) makes no mention of it, instead replacing it with news regarding a PS3-based Playstation Network edition.

Here's the vital section of the aforementioned press release:

A side-scrolling, four-player action brawler based on the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles In Time Re-Shelled will kick off the Summer of Arcade, and release on July 22 worldwide exclusively on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and later this year on the PlayStation®Network.

Perhaps we'll have to cross our fingers for a Virtual Console version of the SNES original?
