Ubisoft Unveils TMNT Smash Up

“Shell-ebrating” 25 years of bad turtle-derived puns with a new four-player brawler for the Wii.

Can you believe that it's been 25 years since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles first came out? It's probably not that hard if you're not an old-ass man like me, but I'm an old-ass man who can't reconcile the amount of time that has passed since he first heard the Ninja Rap. Ubisoft is using this silver anniversary as an excuse to bring the toitles to the Wii in an all-new four-player fighting game. Though the press release makes no explicit mention of the game's name, the included screenshots feature the name TMNT Smash Up, which makes a certain amount of sense, considering the involvement of Japanese developer Game Arts, which had a hand in the development of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The screenshots themselves also suggest a similar style of action to SSBB.

Aside from the fact that the game won't be explicitly based on a specific TMNT cartoon, movie, or comic, and is scheduled to come to the Wii this Fall, Ubisoft isn't saying much else about TMNT Smash Up at the moment, though it promises more details in this month's issue of Nintendo Power.
