Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows Out Now On XBLA

Richard Walker

Today marks the return of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for TMNT: Out of the Shadows on the Xbox Live Arcade, which means it's time for the obligatory launch trailer.

Taking you back to the origins of the four Turtles - Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael, you'll hit the dark New York City streets and dole out some green-skinned vigilante justice against evil mutants, the Foot Clan and Shredder.

Offering drop-in, drop-out co-op, and  team combo moves, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is available to download from XBLA now for $14.99/£9.99 . You can add it to your download queue here, and watch the launch vid below.

  • Sweet
  • Booyakasha!
  • Hopefully this one lasts seein as all the past tmnt games have been pulled from the xbla marketplace such a shame since tmnt is known all across the globe everywhere you go tmnt is there
  • This is the one game I really wanted to get in Summer of Arcade, but at this price point I will wait for DoTW, whenever it happens. I refuse to pay more than $10 for arcade games with few exceptions.
  • Just a heads up for those who haven't played this yet: The camera is simply awful. It's entirely too close to you at all times and there's no way to adjust it. Secondly, the controls are kinda...clunky. It's a great game, mind you. I'm not trying to knock it or make it seem like it's a turd. It just has a few things that can hopefully get patched.
  • one of the only summer of arcade games that seem worth the price.
  • I like TMNT as a franchise but why does Shredder look tiny in this? :/
  • I won't have money until tomorrow.
  • #5 is absolutely right about the camera and the controls, "clunky" is definiely the right word. I've been playing the trial game for about two hours and to be honest I'm a little disappointed, and I was so looking forward to this game...seriously guys try before you buy.
  • Booyakasha!
  • I have no idea how I made a second post.
  • Aiiiiiii!
  • @7 this sounds bad but hey, how many 6ft odd Orientals do you know? o.O Cant imagine Oruku saki/shredder being tall realistically but in the original turtles/splinter are smaller than human size which would have shredder towering over them with out actually towering. Finding it odd how they are using nickolodeon cartoon series enemies/styling when they have changed the turtles look although it looks more in line with the series than originally, maybe there will be skin packs...80's turtles, film turtles, b&W, nickelodeon etc
  • Cowabunga!
  • 4 player Co Op? Cowabunga!!!!! Seriously though WHEN THE F ARE THEY GOING TO MAKE LEGO TMNT. I need that game in my life!
  • i agree with #16 and starting out playing this game as april is like "uhhh"
  • Who's idea was it to make a TMNT game for 16+ gamers, when there is a relaunch of the show on Nickelodeon?
  • They have another TMNT game coming out for the Nick bunch, also kinda dissapointed with this game, feels slow compared to Akrham's fluid controls, I'd jump all over it if it was €10...
  • @#18 - Nickelodeon. You realize the comics aren't for kids either, right? Nickelodeon is well aware of what they're doing. It's mostly for older fans. I'm proud of them not going WELL KIDS WATCH THE SHOW, SO THE OLDER FANS GOTTA DEAL WITH KID GAMES.
  • Didn't say anything about this been a kids game or been bad because of it...
  • Will buy it in later date since I near complete 1000G for Splinter Cell: Blacklist, go back and play SR IV, start Declassified XCOM and The Wonderful 101 after 1000G for Blacklist as well Rayman Legends, Lost Planet 3 and Killer is Dead this week so this why I decide been this Turtles XBLA title for later time when time is good like when retail titles going be quiet week for releases like Christmas Holiday, Half-Term in February, usually fewer games come out in January etc... So it is seem good time to play this XBLA titles. You know I alway into Retail titles then downloadable titles more. But this game is defo one of my games to look forward when retail become quiet week for gaming and that is useful. :)
  • Yeah the controls aren't perfect and the camera seems like a clone of Ninja Gaiden's camera but I enjoyed the demo. Just wish I wasn't broke. Can't wait to start this new job
  • #22 Why do you always write huge chunks of writing telling us what your currently doing?
  • I forgot to mention how horrible this turtles game is. it sucks, horrible controls, graphics, and gameplay. nothing to do with the original turtles. avoid this shit
  • #24 Because I like tell my opinions. :)
  • @27 Not trying to be a dick...but you do know nobody read all of it right? Anyways can't wait to get some money for this!! Can't turn down a Turtles game!
  • #27 Dont listen to people like #25. While #28 was true & I myself didnt bother to read all of that due to my very short attention span, at least ur not spewing hateful comments on this post so feel free to share in ur thoughts and opinions. That is what this place is for isnt it?
  • @27 evertime i try to read your posts ill stop in the first sentence due to the broken english that you type/speak. guess thats why you get all the downvotes too with each post. Maybe you should stop playing all those games for a couple months and learn some proper english so people actually read your posts and understand what you are talking about. No hate just saying.
