New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game being Developed by PlatinumGames

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

It appears PlatinumGames is currently working on a new video game starring everyone’s favorite sewer dwelling heroes. The Australian Classification Board recently posted a rating for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, citing violence, mild themes and very mild language as reasons for its ‘M’ rating. Bear in mind an Australian ‘M’ rating is the equivalent to a ‘T’ rating in North America, so no need to become worried about it being too much for the young ones.

The game will apparently run on multiple platforms (No surprise) and feature online interactivity, hopefully 4-player co-op.

This marks the third licensed video game Platinum has developed for Activision, with The Legend of Korra and Transformers: Devastation being the previous two.

Stay tuned for more info.

Go Behind the Scenes with PlatinumGames’ The Legend of Korra

Activision and PlatinumGames’ The Legend of Korra releases on consoles and PC next week. To help keep your appetites satiated, here’s a couple behind the scenes videos with Platinum’s producer Atsushi Kurooka discusses how the game came to be and more.

It is great to know that Activision actually approached the Japanese studio on making this action packed title. Another interesting tidbit for fans of the developer, Kurooka states Korra will have a difficulty level that “suits their expectations” and the final boss fight will have “PlatinumGames written all over it.” Can’t wait!

 

The Legend of Korra will be available digitally for PC, PS3, PS4 on October 21, 2014.  Xbox 360 and Xbox One will see a release on the following day. The game is priced at $14.99

Check Out 15 Minutes of PlatinumGames’ The Legend of Korra Gameplay

The-Legend-of-Korra-06-26-2

It was revealed a few weeks ago that Activision would be publishing a game based on Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra cartoon series with PlatinumGames developing. The announcement came alongside a teaser trailer that showed no gameplay at all but a scene from the show.

Platinum finally debuted gameplay footage at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con which has been edited and uploaded by AllGamesBeta. The combat looks pretty good so far and if there’s one thing the developer does very well, if not better than most, is combat. They seem to have captured the show’s element bending style of fighting. Here’s hoping the plot (Which takes place during Seasons 2 and 3) holds up and the mini-games aren’t simple distractions.

 

The Legend of Korra launches later this year for digital download on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

“Bayonetta 2 Would Not Exist Without Nintendo” According to Platinum Games

B2

Bayonetta 2 is coming to Wii U exclusively, and many fans are not happy. The first Bayonetta released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 back in 2010 and while it garnered critical acclaim and developed a fanbase, it didn’t sell well enough for then Publisher Sega to continue funding the sequel. It is now making its way to Nintendo’s newest console only, though many are still clinging to the hope that it will see a release on other platforms. JP Kellams, creative producer for developer Platinum Games spoke addressed this situation.

Kellams spoke about the difference with the Japanese gaming industry and how Bayonetta 2 would not be available on other platforms due it being saved by Nintendo, during a presentation at the University of Central Florida’s Center for Emerging Media.

When asked how Platinum Games hoped to keep Bayonetta’s fanbase, after jumping platforms and going exclusive. JP had this to say:

“Without getting into some stuff that is both business and confidential, the simple question I’d like to ask you is, ‘Do you want to play Bayonetta 2?’ Bayonetta 2 would not exist without Nintendo white knighting that project. So while I totally understand that people want to play it on the platforms that they’ve played it on previously, we really wanted to make Bayonetta 2.”

She’s back and like it or not, it’s all thanks to Nintendo.

Kellams also added:

“We really wanted to make Bayonetta 2. And Bayonetta 2 is a project that we were passionate about. And when we couldn’t… when the business situation changed and we couldn’t make it the way that we were originally planning on making it, we definitely wanted to make sure that our project survived. I’ve seen Bayonetta 2 – I look at it every single day of my life when I’m in the office. It’s really cool and the world is going to be a better place because Bayonetta 2 is in it.”

I for one, am glad that Bayonetta 2 is a reality. I will admit to wanting to grab a pitchfork after learning of its exclusivity, since I had no interest in Nintendo’s console. In some ways I still don’t, but I loved the first Bayonetta; it’s one of my favorite action games. Based on the footage and details given thus far, the sequel is shaping up to be even better than the original. I will most likely buy a Wii U at some point to play it. I’m sure there will be other games worth playing on it.

Hopefully others will develop the same mindset, or at least quit being so angry and hateful towards the developers. They put a lot of hard work into Bayonetta 2, it’s great that they get to finish it. Many franchises don’t always get a second chance, if you really are a fan, be thankful that this did.

Rumor: Star Fox for Wii U Caught On *Video* – Fact Or Fiction?

Star Fox Wii U Rumor

***UPDATE*** PlatinumGames has responded to this confirming that the rumor originally reported by SA is indeed false. They have claimed that the video is a fake but have made no comment as to the existence or non-existence of a Star Fox Wii U project.

The following video has been supposedly leaked as a Star Fox Wii U project that has not been announced and will feature development by PlatinumGames with a world called Eladard as the setting (which was supposed to be the setting in which the cancelled Star Fox 2 would have taken place in). Leave your comments below as to whether you think this is real or fake after watching. The source of this rumor is also listed below the video, they claim to have received this as a secret video taping of a demo showing of the alleged Wii U title.
