Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2


tmnt 2 preview          tmnt 2 preview


Go, ninja! Go, ninja, go! The half-shelled mutant turtles are coming back to next-gen consoles for another round, and this time Shredder should be afraid. The pack that consists of Michelangelo, Rafael, Leonardo, and Donatello are ready to make Splinter proud once again.


The focal point of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will be an enhanced multiplayer and co-operative gameplay. Again players can go through the story by themselves or team up with up to three friends to try to take on Shredders evil doing.


The game will be aimed towards the newer generation turtles, although old school fans of the original cartoon and games should expect the same arcade goodness of the past with better graphics and gameplay.



Here is a short game description courtesy of Konami Entertainment:


The action is packed into another exciting series of adventures with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™ 2. Only the best can turn chaos into control with simultaneous play for up to four players in both cooperative and head-to-head modes. TMNT fans will once again assume the role of the famed heroes-in-a-half-shell – Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael. Featuring kick-butt, non-linear story structures, the games allow players to punch, kick and duck their way through battles against The Shredder and his evil pack of Foot Ninjas.  While younger fans of the Turtles will be thrilled by the varied selection of attacks in these all-new rock-em-sock-em adventures, nostalgic fans will be “green” with excitement when they unlock the classic TMNT arcade-games of their youth!
