This agreement states that Activision has the global rights to the production of these games. The first three titles are set to release the summer of 2013.
Kurt Niederloh, Vice President, Activision Publishing Minneapolis, Inc. states in a press release:
"The fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are unique in that they span generations and are very passionate. We respect this passion and look forward to working with Nickelodeon to create games that embody the spirit of the property."
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (aka TMNT) has been around since 1984 as a comic book published by Mirage Studios with a limited print run. It wasn't until 1987 that the cartoon series premiered on television.
TMNT has gone through many different looks, from live action in 1997 to all the different animation styles. Of course, growing up with these as a Saturday morning cartoon, my favorite version of the Turtles has always been the original animation series from 1987 to 1996.
What is your favorite Turtles memory?
