Update: Paramount Pictures, the film company behind next month's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, has revealed that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Training Lair is real, and it's coming soon.

In a statement to GameSpot, Paramount announced that it is partnering with Microsoft to develop this game for the Kinect. The game is not connected to Activision. It also uses images and designs from the TMNT movie. "Utilizing the Kinect technology and film assets, fans can step into the Ninja Turtles’ training lair and train to become a ninja," Paramount wrote.

The game is part of the marketing campaign for the movie, and it will be available on July 22 as a free download for a "limited time."

Original Story: We already know that the 3DS is getting a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game sometime this summer. But now TMNT might be coming to another console, and this time with motion control.

According to reports and images, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Training Lair is in development for the Xbox 360 and will be a Kinect game. A list of achievements and the game's supposed box art appeared on Xboxachievements.com, which suggests that the game is being published by Activision.

A Tweet from account "lifelower" also shows an image of the game in action. A man stands moving his hands to slash objects flying across the screen. It's very similar to Fruit Ninja, except with more Pizza Hut boxes and wooden planks.

There's been no word from Activision if this game is real, but we've reached out to the publisher for comment. If it is being made, the box art looks like it's going to be tied to August's TMNT movie. Keep an eye on GameSpot for more news about this potential TMNT Kinect game when it becomes available.
