The latest issue of NGamer
magazine has a preview of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
brawler that was originally revealed
titled TMNT: Smash Up
(surely a blatant attempt to evoke memories of a certain other brawler
), will feature arenas that change throughout scraps (so you'll change locations as you fight, as happened in Power Stone 2
), and will see players defeating their opponents by either knocking them off the stage (à la -- oh! -- Super Smash Bros.
) or emptying their health meter entirely, which can be refilled with pizza, natch.
There will be no
motion-controlled attacks (though waggle isn't ruled out for other aspects, and there will be context-sensitive moves), and what is described as a "dark, gritty" graphical style. Turtles
co-creator Peter Laird is penning the single-player story, but what we really
want to know is the character roster; currently, only the Turtles and Splinter are confirmed. We're calling shotgun on Krang.
