Activision has shared first screenshots and details for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze, a new game for 3DS (and the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360). WayForward is handling development.

Danger of the Ooze is a new side-scrolling action-adventure release which bridges the gap between season 2 and season 3 of Nickelodeon’s animated program. It features 2D fighting and platforming gameplay with the 3D art direction of the TV series.

Other details published by Activision today:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze brings together new locations, allies and threats! The game quickly heats up as Shredder, Tiger Claw and a new army of mutants threaten the streets of New York, forcing Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo to take action into their own hands. The game’s distinguishing feature is its vast, interconnected, non-linear game world, which rewards exploration and creative thinking. Powers, upgrades and equipment scattered across New York and Dimension X opens up new environments to traverse, secrets to discover and bosses to battle.

All four Turtles can be swapped between freely throughout the adventure, and each has his own unique rhythm, with specialized stats, strengths and skills. Combat is fast-paced, emphasizing the gang’s martial arts prowess through attack and item combos, counters and finishers, but also provides tools for stealth-based approaches to avoid or tackle enemies.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze will launch later this year.

Activision is bringing a Duck Dynasty game to the 3DS, PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, according to listings on Newegg and the ESRB.

The ESRB’s description is as follows:

This is a simulation game in which players assume the role of the “new guy” at Duck HQ with the Duck Dynasty clan. Players explore the town of Duckville, perform tasks for various characters, and engage in fetching and hunting mini-games. Some “cartoony” hunting games involve shooting various animals: targeting flying ducks from a first-person perspective; shooting armadillos, rats, and roaches.

Newegg lists a mid-October release date for Duck Dynasty. At this time, Activision has yet to officially announce the game.


Nintendo can’t be counted out in the long-term, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg has said.

Hirshberg, when asked about Nintendo’s current situation and what could be done to turn things around with Wii U, he stated:

It’s probably a better question to ask Nintendo. They are obviously not off to the start they’ve probably hoped they would’ve had with the Wii U, but they also have some of the world’s best IP and some of the world’s best game makers. I’ve always said they’ve been through rough hardware cycles before, but when you have the kind of game makers and beloved IP like they do, you can’t count [Nintendo] out for the long-term.

Activision’s lineup of Wii U releases have continued this year with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, and the upcoming Skylanders Trap Team. However, it’s looking like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will not be arriving on the system.
