TMNT Fragmented Destiny seems Ninja Turtles


The teenage mutant ninja turtles have a new mission in TMNT Splintered Fate, a new roguelike very similar to the turtles’ take on HaDeS from Supergiant Games. What obviously sets TMNT Splintered Fate apart is the inclusion of the Turtles as playable characters and the cooperative gameplay.

In the new adventure of the turtles, Master Splinter has disappeared. Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael roam the rooftops, streets and sewers of New York City to track down their sensei and solve the secret of who kidnapped him in an “evolutionary narrative,” said Paramount, which was co-written by Kevin Michael Johnson, creative director of the game and comic book writer Tom Waltz. Along the way, the Turtles meet allies such as April O’Neil, Metalhead and Casey Jones, who give clues to Splinter’s whereabouts.

Since it’s a roguelike, teenage mutant ninja turtles get random bonuses and expand the turtles’ unique fighting abilities with each run. In the trailer above, we can see a list of selectable bonuses that affect the action abilities of one of the turtles, giving it a flame strike with a range of action, faster strikes or increased damage with low health. As in HaDeS, there are evolutionary progression and other randomization elements: the layout of the pieces changes, and bosses have various modifiers to spice up familiar action.

TMNT Splintered Fate is the recent in an intensified push to bring Ninja Turtles to video games, following last year’s retro game compilation Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: the Cowabunga Collection and throwback beat-’em-up Shredder’s Revenge. Paramount has a lot more planned for the Turtles, including an AAA adaptation of the graphic novel the Last Ronin. Even the villain Shredder recently became known and gained operator status in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0.

Beyond the games, the Ninja Turtles will be starring in a new animated movie after this year, taking a detour to Hawkins for a Stranger Things crossover.

TMNT Splintered Fate is developed by Super Evil Megacorp, the studio behind mobile hits such as the MOBA Vainglory and the battlefield marksman Catalyst Black. The game is now available through Apple Arcade and can be played on Apple TV, iOS and Mac computers.
