First gameplay video of TMNT: Turtles in Time remake


When the concept of downloading old games was first realized, there were three games I swore I would buy regardless of the cost.  Secret of Mana, which I have on the Virtual Console, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, which will come out this summer and the greatest brawler of all time, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time, which I am still waiting on….

But not for long! Hit the jump for details and video!

Revealed at the Tribeca Film Festival was news that Ubisoft will be releasing a remake of the most amazing Ninja Turtle game for XBLA and possibly WiiWare.  The story was first broken on this TMNT news blog, but has since been covered by various gaming media outlets, such as Destructoid. (Destructoid – Cowabunga! Gameplay video of TMNT: Turtles in Time.)

Taken straight from the blog entry, here is some news about the game and what was playable:

  • The game is set up and directly taken from TMNT Turtles in Time.
  • Right now it’s only going to be for Xbox Live, but they’re working on bringing it to Wii (Virtual Console Wiiware?).
  • It has the same music as the old game.
  • Only the levels “Alleycat Blues” and “Skull and Crossbones” were playable.
  • The only difference noticed was the bosses for the “Skull and Crossbones” are Tokka and Rahzar (unlike the original, which had Bebop and Rocksteady).
  • For Alleycat Blues the boss is still Metalhead.
  • The game is basically Turtles in Time with new graphics – Awesome!

Not only do we have this information, but there is also a first look at one of the levels in the game.  This game is still in early stages, but already, this looks like a winner.  Although I may have been happier with just a direct port of the game, old graphics and all, I’m super stoked to have the chance to play TMNT IV online with friends.
