Turtle power in action

Get your first glimpse of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with this behind the scenes promo of the Ubisoft game, currently in development to accompany the release of the new Turtles films, due to be released next March.

The promo shows how developer Ubisoft Montreal has approached the game by identifying three aspects of being a ninja turtle - combat, agility and teamwork - then making them integral to the gameplay.

While combat and agility translate into fighting and platforming, it's the teamwork that looks like the most exciting aspect as it allows gamers to combine the various strengths of the four Turtles. This results in the Turtles hurling each other over rooftops or using their weapons to swing through the air. Click the Movies tab above to get a faceful of shellshock.
