New TMNT game on the way from Ubisoft

Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael are back in an all-new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle game slated to be released by Ubisoft in the fall of 2009. The game is being developed for the Wii by Games Arts. Ubisoft describes the potential, although not finalized title “TMNT Smash Up” as a four-player fighting action game. This will be the first TMNT game released not linked to a movie, TV show, or comic book. I hope this game lives up to the TMNT games I played throughout my childhood. I recall countless sleepovers consisting of beating Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II for NES. The TMNT franchise has been tied to solid video games for years and I hope this one is great because I will always hold a special place in my heart for those four bald green guys.
