Bayonetta, Scalebound Dev's TMNT Game Release Date Announced
Mutants in Manhattan is coming soon.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, the upcoming action game from Bayonetta and Scalebound developer Platinum Games, will arrive on May 24, it was announced today. The release date comes by way of a IGN trailer for the game hosted on YouTube.
The game looks like it will tell the story of the Foot Clan's first assault on New York City and the origins of the ongoing clash between the Turtles and the Foot. The trailer also offers glimpses at other iconic characters such as Bebop, Rocksteady, and the cyborg shark Armaggon.
Its release on May 24 comes just a couple weeks before the next entry in the film series, Out of the Shadows, arrives in theaters, on June 3. You can watch the latest clip for the action movie here.
The last Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game was released in 2013 for Xbox 360 and PC by Activision, with a PS3 version released in 2014. The game, titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, was developed by Red Fly Studio and only released digitally. It was critically panned in GameSpot's review, scoring a three out of ten for its game-breaking glitches and poor camera system.
Platinum Games is well known for its experience working on several action games, including the critically acclaimed Bayonetta 2, as well as Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The studio is currently developing the upcoming Star Fox Zero, Nier: Automata, and Xbox One-exclusive Scalebound.
