Did you miss the mutant turtles? If you haven’t been watching cartoons on TV or played their video games recently, you have something to look forward to this summer.
A new video game of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles subtitled Out of the Shadows will be released in a few months time. Players have a chance to be their favorite reptile character either as Donatello, Leonardo, Michaelangelo or Raphael.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows will be available for download for PS3, PC and Xbox 360. Thanks to Activision and Nickelodeon, this new video game was made possible. And there are more to come as the deal between the two companies actually involves three video games so two more are coming.
The first video game featuring the mutant turtles was released in 1989 for the original Nintendo console. Two other arcade games were released later – the Arcade Game and the Turtles in Time which all became hits. These previous games are now considered a classic.
Originally created in an American comic book published in 1984, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles gained popularity when it was produced as a TV series in 1987. It resulted in a high sales of merchandise for kids and teens worldwide ranging from clothes, skateboards and toys to school supplies and video games.
