Regardless of the fact that there hasn't been a well-received "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" game since the popular arcade game, "Turtles in Time", developers are still willing to try. Today, Sept 4, Activision announced it would be the publisher of a new mutant-filled title being developed by WayForward. "Danger of the Ooze" will be a side-scrolling action-adventure slated to release on the PS3, Xbox 360, and 3DS that will span the gap between seasons 2 and 3 of the hit Nickelodeon animated series.
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze" will have the four underground mutants protecting New York City from the perils of Shredder, who has teamed up with Tiger Claw and other mutants. From the sewers to the streets, the turtles will fight across a "vast, interconnected, non-linear game world, which rewards exploration and creative thinking." Players will be able to swap between all four of the iconic, fast-talking turtles, each bringing their own perks to the fight.
While there is no mention of it, it would be quite surprising if "Danger of the Ooze" turned out to be a single-player adventure. Currently, there was no projected release date revealed by Activision and details are pretty slim, but an article on SegmentNext from Aug 26 referred to a listing on NewEgg for "Danger of the Ooze", suggesting an Oct 28 release date.
