Under the new agreement, Activision has the global rights to produce interactive games based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles property.

I'd love to see a TMNT action/rpg series like Ultimate Alliance.

That'd be awesome!

Do. It. Right!!! I can't take the disappointment of another shitty turtles game. There hasn't been a good one since Turtles in Time.

The Konami games were awesome and the Arcade game is classic. Anybody else spot the TMNT Arcade game in Wreck-It Ralph?

Why cant they make one game which is based on CGI series and one which is more adult oriented like the very first comics.
AlexDeLarge87 - 2/7/2013, 10:47 AM
the new cgi series doesnt really strike me with its extravagant humor.
AlexDeLarge87 - 2/7/2013, 10:48 AM
i now kids like it but they should give something for us older people too.

AlexDeLarge@ That'd be cool. I can't believe they've not given this property to Rocksteady.

New TMNT games based on the CG cartoon? I don't know... I would rather they makes new games based on the 80's cartoon.
