Activision signs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games deal

First of three planned titles set to be released this summer

Activision has today confirmed rumours that it has signed a multi-year deal with Nickelodeon to develop and publish games inspired by the new CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.


The series premiered last September in the US and the following month in Europe, and a 26-episode second series is due to begin airing this year.

Activision will release the first of three planned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games this summer. The game's developer and target platforms weren't announced.

"The fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are unique in that they span generations and are very passionate," said Activision Publishing vice president Kurt Niederloh. "We respect this passion and look forward to working with Nickelodeon to create games that embody the spirit of the property."

Sherice Torres, senior VP of entertainment products for Nickelodeon Consumer Products, added. "We are confident that these upcoming games will take gamers through interactive environments and action-packed adventures that truly capture the essence, tone and exciting elements of the Turtles."
