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.
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.
