Despite the middling quality of most licenced games, last year's Transformers: Devastation proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable mix of fighting mayhem and 80s nostalgia. Then again, it was the product of Japan's Platinum Games, a developer responsible for such manic delights as Bayonetta, Vanquish and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
Platinum's now looking to repeat the successful Transformers formula of familiar property and fighting action with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan. Once again, it looks like an interactive Saturday morning cartoon, with cel-shaded characters flitting about in 3D environments.
As you might expect, there'll be four-player online co-op as well as a four-player competitive mode. Mutants In Manhattan is out this summer, so we're sure to hear lots more soon. Until then, here's »
After what feels like hundreds of leaks, Activision has officially debuted the first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan.
Based off an original story penned by Tmnt author Tom Waltz, Mutants In Manhattan looks to be another showcase for the acclaimed developer. In the debut trailer, we see Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo squaring off against the grunts of Shredder’s Foot Clan, as well as more powerful foes like Armaggon, Bebop and Rocksteady.
Similar to two other recent PlatinumGames developed titles, The Legend of Korra and Transformers: Devastation, the game will sport a stylized cel-shaded look. The colorful visuals will work in tandem with a gritty take on the popular franchise that is more in line with the comic book series, rather than the Nickelodeon TV series and film franchise.
While the fact that PlatinumGames is working on the title should make any action fan happy, »

Needless to say, Masters of the Universe isn't exactly high art. The long-defunct Mattel franchise -- which began as a toy line first before being spun off into a popular Saturday morning cartoon series in the 1980s -- was a silly diversion for the under-10 set that was perfectly suited to being served up with heavy doses of sugary breakfast cereal. And yet so was Transformers, which didn't keep it from being turned into a multi-billion-dollar live-action film franchise that cut across demographic barriers. Still, it hasn't been quite so easy for He-Man -- Masters' blond-locked, impossibly-muscled central hero -- on the big screen. The first effort at a live-action film, 1987's Masters of the Universe, was beset by numerous production problems, a lead actor who could barely deliver dialogue, and ridiculous contractual stipulations from Mattel that inadvertently led to charges of Star Wars copycatism. While it certainly had its charms, »
