And it looks like it could be killer.

It's been a bit since we had a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game and an even longer time since we had a good one. But that could soon change when Platinum Games unleashes TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan this summer on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Yeah, that's right: the rumors that swirled around last month are true. Over on the PlayStation Blog, Platinum's Robert Cooper says that if you've played any of the studio's previous action games that you shouldn't have a lot of trouble getting comfortable in the solo and co-op campaign here.

Oh, and he also reveals that Bebop and Rocksteady (heavily featured in the trailer below and in this summer's TMNT: Out of the Shadows movie) will be among the Foot Clan you'll fight.

The only thing I'm a little wary of is the character design. And that's mostly because it makes me think of the Michael Bay-produced flicks, but Cooper says the cel-shaded amphibians actually take a lot of inspiration from comic book artist Mateus Santolouco's designs for the Heroes in Halfshells. Platinum's pedigree is incredibly solid, so there's reason to be optimistic here. Let's hope it won't be rushed out the door to tie in to the Turtles' next movie adventure this summer, though.
