I got my new Nintendo Power in the mail today and it’s got a sneak peek at an upcoming Ninja Turtle fighting game in it. The TMNT released two fighting games prior, the very fun Tournament Fighters in the 90’s which was like Street Fighter but with TMNT and a more recent game that I haven’t played.

This normally wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but the magazine really puts the game over hard because it’s being designed by the team that put together Smash Brothers Brawl. They say it won’t play exactly like Brawl, but that it should play better and smoother. Including an online mode. That sounds terrific and the graphics look great.

Of course the magazine also gets a few facts wrong, this is clearly based off the TMNT movie although it doesn’t tie into the movie. Apparently Peter Laird helped craft the story and it looks like a lot of fun. The developers said since it’s not actually part of show or movie, they have to make a good game. Which sounds cool. I heard the last TMNT game was crap, although I liked the first two most recently released.

It’ll be out just in time for the 35th Anniversary of the Ninja Turtles next year. If the news keeps being this good, I’ll probably buy it. Sounds like it might be a Wii exclusive too.

Now if we can just get NECA to release the Foot Solider, Shredder, Utrom and April figures soon!
