London, UK – 30 th June, 2014 – Nickelodeon’s justice-sworn, pizza-fuelled, half-shelled heroes in green are back in Activision’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles , a third-person action game coming to Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system, just in time for the release of the Paramount Pictures’ film of the same name. Mad genius Baxter Stockman’s mutant and robotic horrors have teamed up with the shadowy armies of the Foot Clan to terrorise New York City and only Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello can protect its subways, sewers, rooftops and streets from their devastating campaign.

Developed by Magic Pockets, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is built around fast-moving hack-and-slash gameplay, letting players swap between its four main characters at will. From Mikey’s speed to Raph’s brute force, each brother brings a unique set of strengths and skills to battle, based on their personality. Players can evolve in power over time, gaining new levels, abilities and stat points, while mighty new weapons can be crafted back at the Turtle’s Lair from raw materials collected throughout the adventure.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will arrive later this summer for Nintendo 3DS™ and is rated PEGI 12. For the latest Turtles details as they emerge, head over to https://www.facebook.com/TMNT.
