One of two TMNT games that Ubisoft brought to E3 -- the other being the remake of the awesome SNES game Turtles in Time -- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up is a four person brawler set to come out this fall on the Wii. The game will feature franchise regulars like Splinter, Shredder and April O’Neil (Since when are reporters trained in swordplay?) along with everyone’s four favorite anthropomorphic turtles named after Renaissance artists.
Along with the obvious versus mode, there’ll also be an original story mode written by TMNT co-creator Peter Laird. Several online game types are promised as well, including tournament and battle royal modes. No word on if they’ll require the dreaded friend code system, though. A slew of unlockables and minigames will also be thrown in for good measure.
And if the above trailer reminds you a bit of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, that’s probably because it’s being developed by Game Arts, part of the team that worked on Brawl. Their experience in the 4v4 brawler genre should hopefully result in an impressive final product.
