Viacom: TMNT Video Games Coming Soon
On February 7, 2013, there was a little press release announcing that Activision will be taking on some new projects. Now don’t get too excited, but I’m crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. Activision has a contract to start making Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle games based on the CG Nickelodeon series, which if you’re not watching, you should be.
Here is the press release from Viacom (PDF), found via Turtle fansite NinjaPizza.net.
“Nickelodeon and Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc., today announced a worldwide, multi-year deal to develop and publish video games inspired by the new CG-animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Under the new agreement, Activision has the global rights to produce interactive games based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles property.”
This is great news for many Turtle fans out there. I am really hoping for a return of the Ninja Turtles as the best beat-em-up games of all time, but that may be just me getting excited.
