According to a ratings board listing, Platinum’s TMNT game is is called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. This was backed up when the game’s achievements list emerged earlier in January.

The game’s first screenshots, showing off Transformers: Devastation-like cel-shaded graphics, emerged just last week. We don’t know anything yet about platforms and a release date, but if the game is indeed officially announced tomorrow, we’ll have all the details for you soon.

The last Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game was released in 2013 for Xbox 360 and PC by Activision, with a PS3 version released in 2014. The game, titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, was developed by Red Fly Studio and only released digitally. It was critically panned in GameSpot’s review, scoring a three out of ten for its game-breaking glitches and poor camera system.

Platinum Games is well known for its experience working on several action games, including the critically acclaimed Bayonetta 2, as well as Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The studio is currently developing the upcoming Star Fox Zero, Nier: Automata, and Xbox One-exclusive Scalebound.
