Teenage Ninja Turtles To Get A Mature, Darker Tone Action RPG!

The games that are mostly beat’em up and/or platformer style have not shied away from possibly darker elements, so prepare for a more serious experience than these.


In 2020, the five-part Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin was released, and Doug Rosen, Senior Vice President of Games and Emerging Media at Paramount Global, confirmed that a third-person action-RPG genre game adaptation is in the works but did not specify which studio was tasked with the job. Rosen told Polygon that a darker, more adult concept is being given to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, known in its home country as Teenage Ninja Turtles, which will hereafter be abbreviated as TMNT.

Rosen has compared the concept to the 2018 God of War and its sequel last year, God of War: Ragnarok. The game’s story remains faithful to the storyline of The Last Ronin; it’s set in the future, where only one of the four warrior turtles survives. However, this warrior will also wield the iconic weapon of his three brothers. According to the comics, it’s Michelangelo (but he dies in the story… we know, we’re spoiling, but it’s relevant information for the game).

Rosen added that there would be mainly one character (Michelangelo) to play, with flashback scenes (the last issue of the comic itself ends with one) allowing you to take control of others. Don’t expect the game this year, though, as Rosen says they’re still a few years away from release, but he believes they’ve found the right partner to make a punchy AAA game.

And that’s all we know for now about the game adaptation of TMNT: The Last Ronin. It could be further complicated by the sequel, Lost Years, which began last November, and who knows how the franchise will shape up in development. Suppose we put it at three years from launch, then around 2026. In that case, it’s not out of the question that the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC might get it, possibly next to the Nintendo Switch successor, or even the next-generation Sony and Microsoft consoles could be among the target platforms.
