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.

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.
