Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an action/brawler that pits the eponymous Turtles against the Foot Clan and The Kraang, who have begun working together. In addition to thwarting this deadly alliance's various nefarious deeds, they must rescue their friend April O'Neil, who has been kidnapped by The Shredder.
The existence of the game was initially revealed via the "Stealth Turtles" action figures, which claimed that it was available at the time of release of the figures (when in fact, it was never even announced prior to this). These figures listed cheat codes for the game, in which it was revealed that the game would be released on Xbox 360, Wii, and Nintendo 3DS. The game was formally announced at San Diego Comic Con 2013.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released for all three of these platforms on October 22, 2013. The Xbox 360 version was made available via physical copy, or beginning on November 1, 2013, on the Games Store via Games On Demand.
