Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem debuted in theaters over the summer, receiving critical acclaim and launching an extremely successful toy line. Given the popularity of the film (not to mention that of TMNT: Shredder's Revenge), it comes as no surprise that a video game tie-in is in the works. And who is more likely to deliver that game than Outright Games, the English developer responsible for licensed titles like Paw Patrol World and Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party? Alright, so the Mutant Mayhem game is likely to be targeted at kids, but more TMNT games are always welcome!
Details about the Mutant Mayhem game are scarcer than the Ninja Turtles make themselves after the cops show up, but Outright Games did share this:
Taking place months after the events of the movie, the game will feature unique visuals inspired by the film's bold, painterly art style. Combining energetic ninja teamwork gameplay with a humorous narrative, players will take control of the Turtles as they interact with a host of memorable characters from the franchise and fight to save this stylized take on New York City from a new mutant threat.
Given that a Mutant Mayhem TV series and theatrical sequel are also in the works, it will be interesting to see how the game fits into the timeline of the movie(s) and show. Oh, and we're very interested to learn whether the game will support co-op, and for how many players! That important information wasn't included in the announcement, but we'll keep our eyes open and our ears peeled for the co-op deets. Based on Outright Games' recent track record and the natural strengths of the TMNT brand, co-op support is highly probable.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem will be coming to consoles and PC sometime in 2024. If you haven't seen the movie yet, it's available to rent and buy digitally on Vudu and other video on demand services. Blu-ray releases will follow sometime this year.
