"Developed by a team made up of ex-Smash and ex-Team Ninja staff, TMNT is set to bring a similar arena-based fighting design as Brawl did early last year on Wii."

if it was multiplat, it would have had a reason to exist....for every console owner to experience a smash bro's like game....but on the wii, which already has smash bro's, what exactly is the point of it?

Party fighting on a great social console makes sense enough I reckon, but what's really confusing is they're using the CG movie look from like three years ago. From what I've heard, the new one won't even look like that, so this already seems dated in that sense.

Why not go for an appealing, neutral cartoon look instead?

I'm an old time TMNT fan though so stick this full of enough familiar faces and have gameplay that somewhat backs it up and I'll be game.

They say it's not based on any of the existing incarnations, it's just a mish mash. They definitely don't look too much like the recent CG movie though, besides the darker skin colour.

But again, I loved the show as a kid so I'm looking forward to what they can do with this, it'll be interesting to see which characters they include. There's a lot of potiential here.

Because the Wii is a party system and variety is not a bad thing. That could be why it exists.

I swear the enviroments are out of proportion compared to the turtles...it just looks weird, almost looks like a toy set.

About the game


What's up?

    GriftGFX @Melmoth: They'll probably have more luck w/ Eastern pubs.. which is okay with me. (0 minute ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth but will third party dare to invest in big projects that would ship in 2-3 years? that's the critical part. i'm guessing we'll see a lot of early 3rd party support consisting of low-risk projects. (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They really did throw all of their might behind the 3DS.. which for whatever reason they decided was more important. (2 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It took WiiU far too long to get stuff like MK8, 3D World, and Smash. Had Nintendo been able to supply more first party software I think it would have sold better. (2 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The launch lineup is sparse, but Zelda will drive adoption throughout March and April.. easily. They just need to keep them coming. (3 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I've wanted Nintendo to make a hybrid console since before they announced a hybrid console. This is far more exciting to me than another "me too" box. (4 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth it's gonna be interesting to see how the sales/reception of the switch is. if we'll see the same vicious circle as with the Wii U (4 minutes ago)
