Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, the upcoming action game from Bayonetta and Scalebound developer Platinum Games, will arrive on May 24, it was announced today. The release date comes by way of a trailer for the game, embedded below.

Mutants in Manhattan is coming to PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. Heavily leaked before its official announcement, the game is published by Call of Duty and Destiny company Activision.

The game looks like it will tell the story of the Foot Clan's first assault on New York City and the origins of the ongoing clash between the Turtles and the Foot. The trailer also offers glimpses at other iconic characters such as Bebop, Rocksteady and the cyborg shark Armaggon.

Its release on May 24 comes just a couple weeks before the next entry in the film series, "Out of the Shadows," arrives in theaters on June 3. You can watch the latest trailer for the action movie here.

The last Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game was released in 2013 for Xbox 360 and PC by Activision, with a PS3 version released in 2014. The game, titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, was developed by Red Fly Studio and only released digitally. It was critically panned in GameSpot's review, scoring a three out of 10 for its game-breaking glitches and poor camera system.

Platinum Games is well known for its experience working on action games, including the critically acclaimed Bayonetta 2, as well as Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The studio is currently developing the upcoming Star Fox Zero, Nier: Automata and Xbox One-exclusive Scalebound.
