A mutant surprise – in new TMNT 2 Trailer

Back in 1990 we were treated to a gem of a movie – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It didn’t take long before the rumors started about the sequel: The Secret of the Ooze. More specifically about the possibility of a couple of mutant henchmen. What were we hoping for? Well Bebop and Rocksteady of course. And what did we get, aside from a Ninja Rap dance? Tokar and Rahzar – a mutant dog and snapping turtle.

It’s more then 20 years later and with the rebooted TMNT we are finally getting to see our favorite mutants. Oh and did I mention Casey Jones?

Nickelodeon to Air New TMNT Series

Nickelodeon to Air New TMNT Series

Fans of the half-shell heroes rejoice: your time has come.  Beginning in 2012, pre-teen and tween powerhouse Nickelodeon will air a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series.  Many rumors have circulated recently about Nickelodeon returning to its animation roots in light of its current, live-action tween show line-up.  However, the new TMNT series is a rumor that is completely confirmed.  The webpage Comics Alliance provides the scoop on the turtles and their new image:

The Wall Street Journal reports the upcoming CG animated series is set to begin in 2012 and quotes the show’s executive producer Ciro Nieli as saying the Green Machines will have “more individual attributes” than in previous incarnations. Judging from Nickelodeon’s official promo image, those attributes include the original TMNT toys’ varied green hues, plus an assortment of athletic tape. I don’t blame them, smashing ninja foes like the Foot Clan surely leads to repetitive stress injuries.”

It looks promising, especially being in the hands of a channel that has always provided stellar animated series (especially those from the early 90s that inarguably changed children’s television).  As for the franchise’s future in film, that’s for Michael Bay to decide.

TMNT: Turtles in Time 3D Remake Coming

tmnt_turtles_in_time

Classic beat ’em ups used to litter various arcades back in the 90s. You couldn’t turn your head with running into a Battletoads or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade cabinet. And with the rise of services such as Xbox Live Arcade, the PlayStation Network Store and the Wii Virtual Console/Wiiware, such games have been brought back into the limelight.

When Konami’s 1989 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles graced its way onto Xbox Live Arcade, many wondered: would we see more? Well now, that question seems to have been answered with a revamped version of Konami’s follow up to the 1989 arcade game, 1991’s TMNT: Turtles in Time, for the Xbox Live Arcade.

Unveiled as part of the TMNT 25th Anniversary bus tour, the game appears to be in playable form. As an added bonus, the game has been revamped, rendered in 3D, though still retaining the same gameplay and style from the original version. No announcement has been made on when the game will be released but it would definitely be a welcome addition to XBLA.

And who knows? Maybe soon we’ll start seeing rereleases of that Uncanny X-Men arcade game or, my personal favorite, the old 1991 Simpsons game. Ah…one can dream.
