A God of War-inspired Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin Game is Happening

Richard Walker

A dark, God of War-inspired Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game is in the works, Paramount Global Games VP Doug Rosen has announced. Based upon the rather bleak five-issue IDW comic book mini-series, The Last Ronin, the game is in development at an as-yet-unnamed studio.

According to Rosen (speaking to Polygon), TMNT: The Last Ronin will mainly focus upon Michelangelo, who in the comic book is the last of the turtles gang, facing off against the Foot Clan using his fallen brothers' weapons. In the grim future storyline, Master Splinter is also no more, and the Foot Clan reigns over New York's streets at the behest of Shredder's grandson.

Rosen notes that other characters could be playable via flashback sequences, in a similar fashion to the comic book story. He adds that the right partner has been found to develop the AAA project, which is a “few years off” from release. It's a far cry from the colourful beat ‘em up shenanigans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge or the games featured in Konami's TMNT Cowabunga Collection, but sounds intriguing.

Little more is known about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, other than its God of War influences, but as soon as we hear more, you'll hear more too.

  • Quality
  • Sounds interesting. Never read the comics
  • I read the comics but felt the story wasn't as good as the hype. Some of the character deaths that lead to the primary story where underwhelming imop. It wasn't bad necessarily, just disappointing for me. Turtles were my jam since they first debuted.
  • My good friend was just telling me about this game. It’s wild to think of any of the turtles dying. They’re my cowabunga heroes since the 80s. I’m interested for sure now!
  • The original Turtles comics were also very dark. So there is great potential here.
  • Meh, just give Turtle fans what they really want: A video game about the third movie :)
  • So how is it God of War inspired?
  • @unger probably more inspired by the new god of war games rather than the older ones i'm guessing when it comes to combat.
  • Color me interested.
