Mean, green fighting machines

In case you were worried, there is going to be a licensed game coming out from the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. The inevitability of this was as plain as the mildly bulbous, nostril-ized areas on the heroes' faces.

Announced by Activision, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the 3DS will take the form of a third-person action game that will let players switch between the four turtles at any time. Each turtle possesses his own set of stats and skills, with Raphael, as a given example, centering on strength and Michelangelo focusing more on speed. Classic foes will show up as fodder to face off against, including the Foot Clan and Baxter Stockman's scientific abominations.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is developed by Magic Pockets, the Paris-based house who also made the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game based on the Nickelodeon cartoon reboot (although they have the same name, their covers should not be easy to confuse). The new title is expected to emerge in early August, around the 8th August release of the movie.
