We’re pleased to announce that Activision today launched a new video game based on one of Nickelodeon’s most iconic, beloved animated television properties – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Available now for Xbox 360. Younger and veteran players everywhere can join their favourite half-shelled heroes – Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael – as they return to the streets of New York.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a side-scrolling, action-fighting game that combines the striking art style and charming storytelling of Nickelodeon’s popular, animated series with the beat ‘em up feel of classic Turtles’ brawlers, featuring fast and fun gameplay and pick-up-and-play combat. Hidden collectibles encourage exploration along the way, while a light progression system unlocks powerful abilities for each Turtle as the adventure advances. With four-player, local, drop-in/drop-out co-op support (Xbox 360 and Wii only), players can truly play as Team TMNT as they team up to take down Shredder, Fishface and other Turtles Universe enemies across a dozen levels with a multitude of gameplay modes for a thrilling experience.
Visitors to MCM London Comic Con on 24-26 May will get an exclusive worldwide first to play of Deadpool, Activision’s exciting new actioner starring Marvel Comics‘ iconic anti-hero. The publisher says that show attendees will have the chance to get hands-on with two levels from the upcoming game, which will be released on Xbox 360 (and other none important platforms) on 28 June.
As if getting a worldwide exclusive first play isn’t enough, visitors will also be able to take part in a range of special Deadpool activities across the weekend:
- Everyone who plays the game will get a free and exclusive Deadpool poster with artwork that has been especially created for MCM London Comic Con by a Marvel artist.
- Everyone who pre-orders Deadpool from GAME at the Activision stand will walk away with an exclusive Deadpool T-shirt (while stocks last).
- At 2pm on the Saturday of the show, Activision will be giving away 1,000 awesome Deadpool masks – don your epic new headgear and do some Deadpooling!
- Get your picture taken against the Deadpool photo wall emblazoned with an image of the iconic marvel character, tweet it with the hashtag #DeadpoolGame and on each day of the show Activision will pick one lucky tweeter who will win a copy of the game (to be sent to them when it releases).
I will be heading to our beautiful capital city this Saturday (25th May) to attend and report back exclusively for ThisisXbox.
