If the initial announcement of the video game adaptation of the beloved 2020 comic series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, got you excited, here’s more news to keep the hype going. THQ Nordic has officially revealed that The Last Ronin game will be headed up by Black Forest Games.
For those unfamiliar with the studio, they are best known for the recent remakes of both Destroy All Humans! and Destroy All Humans! 2. Whether that will bring comfort or caution remains to be seen, but at least now that the information is out there, the community can make their voices heard by the right people working on The Last Ronin.
Considering the fact that the two more recent projects took a more slapstick approach to the gameplay experience, it will be a departure for the studio to take on this new project. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin is undoubtedly one of the darker takes in the franchise’s history, which could also explain its popularity among readers.
Set in a less-than-ideal future, the story sees the heroes in a half shell reduced to one last member due to the nefarious machinations of the Foot Clan. Now, this lone survivor has to embark on a revenge mission to avenge his brothers and bring down the evil behind it all, the grandson of Shredder.
The video game will definitely help to engender even more interest in the comic series, with a sequel for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin currently being in development as well. This was revealed at last month’s San Diego Comic-Con, with the first issue slated for release on 13 December.
No release date has yet been set for The Last Ronin video game, but it will be launching on the likes of PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
