Rocksteady Studios, the developer behind the Batman: Arkham games, is reportedly working on a brand new game, this time with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles property, which is scheduled to feature a grittier take on the famous franchise.
Rocksteady Studios burst onto the games industry scene with Batman: Arkham Asylum, a game that not a lot people had high hopes for. The game smashed these expectations to bits, however, with stunning gameplay, a dark visual style and a great cast of characters.
The UK-based studio proved its worth once more with Batman: Arkham City
, managing to impress even more people and delight them with new adventures
featuring The Dark Knight.
Now, according to a report from the Paul Gale Network
, the developer is hard at work on a brand new game, based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, a series of cartoons, movies and TV shows that saw a few games released for it over the years.
The report says that the new game is called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Manhattan Crisis, and will feature the four main heroes, Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo as playable characters. Throughout the story, flashback sequences will allow players to also control Master Splinter.
The heroes each have access to their unique weapons, as well as shurikens, smoke bombs, grappling hooks, or foot spikes, and will go up against villains like Rocksteady and Bebop, Shredder, Krang, or Dr. Baxter Stockman.
Plenty of other gadgets and vehicles are also present, including the Turtle Van or Turtle Blimp, while the heroes will interact with sidekicks like April O’Neil or Casey Jones. While the story will have a gritty theme, expect the main characters to have plenty of hilarious dialogs, including lots of jokes, as it the tradition for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles experience.
Bear in mind, however, that these are just rumors, as of yet, so who knows what Rocksteady Studios is working on right now.
