TMNT: Smash Up (Wii) - due out September 2009!

Written by a WiiTalk member on Monday, 16 February 20092 Comments

Why am I giving you a sneak preview of a game not due for release until at least the end of Q3 this year?  Because something about it excites me, that’s why…

Ubisoft have just released the first trailer and screenshots of this new brawler, and in my eyes, it has great potential.  Forget the Hero Turtles with their “Cowabunga, Dude!” cries, this game takes us back to their grittier comicbook roots, when they were Ninjas that loved to fight! Some of the Game Arts development team worked on SSBB, and some used to be members of Team Ninja, who of course developed the Xbox Dead or Alive games. Good solid team then!  The graphics of this game look very comic-bookish, but I like that. Although we don’t know how many playable characters there will be other than the four turtles themselves and Master Splinter, you can expect a lot of the main characters that we know and love throughout the history of the cult comic books, especially as Mirage Studios are directly involved in the character selection process.  The game is set up in a similar way to SSBB, allowing up to four

characters to brawl in multi-level stages at once. Online play will satisfy gamers keen to challenge their forum mates to a battle (and Game Arts has promised that this online game will run much more smoothly than Brawl did), and as with Brawl, you can use items and taunts in-game.

There will also be a single player story mode, though this will apparently be quite different from Brawl’s side-scrolling Subspace Emissary. I daresay more details will be released on this in due course.

Here are some early screenshots, plus the first official trailer - enjoy!
