A brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game inspired by action RPGs such as God of War is in the works, it's been confirmed. The title will be based on the graphic novel The Last Ronin, which told a darker story based on the famous turtles and was released in 2020. The studio making the game hasn't been revealed just yet, but we know the project is still a "few years off" from any sort of release.
Paramount Global's Doug Rosen likened the upcoming TMNT game to Kratos' rebooted PS5, PS4 experiences, with a plot that's authentic to The Last Ronin. While you'll mainly play as a single character, the opportunity to take the reigns as other turtles could be sourced from flashback sequences. It's described as an "ambitious AAA" game, so something fans will likely want to keep their eye on.
Told across five issues, The Last Ronin focuses on just one of the Turtles, as the other three have been murdered by the Foot Clan. A follow-up named The Lost Years is also rolling out across 2023, with two instalments available so far. Are you be interested in this TMNT game? Let us know in the comments below.
Such a phenomenal comic, I’m all for this!
Do not read that Polygon article if you don’t want the story spoiled. Huge spoilers, what a trashy website.
Sounds shelltastic to me
That sounds interesting.a teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game inspired by the g.o.a.t. 🐐 👑 god of war ragnarok is welcome.word up son
Fantastic news! A stellar comic book, woulld be a unique, fresh take on the turtles. Really hoping they announce the developer soon
I am all in for this. Intrigued to see which studio is taking the reigns on it too
Sounds terrible. Hopefully it turns out half way decent
A TNMT game that doesn’t absolutely HAVE to look like a throwback to playing on a game boy colour and can actually join the world of contemporary gaming? Guessing this is just a rumour someone made up on a night out …
I hope they do this justice.
Wow Talk about a coincidence! I just bought the comic that that's game is based off of lol its an amazing story, very well told! Definitely interested in this!
@NathanKang A game based on a great comic what takes its ideas from GoW sounds terrible?
If it is half as good as Ragnarok you can count me in day one. And I never cared about the turtles but this game and the movie could very well change that
A dark and gritty Ninja Turtles game is what I've been hoping for for years now. Generations even. While this isn't exactly what I was hoping for, it's close enough. Fingers crossed this turns out phenomenal.
Either Paramount or Nickelodeon announced that a new "AAA" TMNT game was launching this year alongside the new movie...and that turned out to be some bs Roblox tie-in thing, so you'll excuse me for having literally zero trust in this.
@WallyWest God of War isn't as good as y'all like to gas up.
Wow, an inspired pitch for a comic based game adaptation... take a look at that rocksteady and crystal dynamics, not that hard.
I can see it work if well executed.
Reins not reigns
Sounds awesome, not enough good tmnt games out there sadly
Sounds brutal and intriguing 👀
@NathanKang Maybe you are wrong you ever thought about that? How can someone be wrong in he likes anyway.
@NathanKang Oh look everyone! Quirky-person TM with the contrarian take no one asked for!
Thank the lord, and thank you for existing. You're wonderful in every way, and if anyone says anything different they're just wrong, because you had a contrarian take on the internet!
@commentlife Thanks for the warning! I have yet to read the comic and wish to go into the game as blind/fresh as can be.
@NathanKang Says who? You? Clearly most think differently though.
Great comic, could be neat, been wanting a game that explores some of the TMNT comics.
reading god of war labeled as an “action rpg” stings a bit , knew they weren’t talking about the OG hack n slash ones .
i hope TMNT is a hack n slash
The problem for me is. The turtles have only ever looked good in the 90s cartoon and the original live action films in my opinion.
So I'd of rather had a triple A game made about that era than the Last Ronin.
I just dont want shell shaded graphics I want top notch turtles in god of war graphics.
But ill definitely keep my eye on this and play it regardless.
But just 1 turtle playable for there first triple a outing. Not read the last ronin though. Probably should
@WallyWest yes they obviously don't have a clue.
