Pizza Time! Ubisoft Grab The Turtles Licence

Cowabunga! Ubisoft have announced that they have picked up the rights to develop and publish games based on the forthcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie. The movie, which is being brought to us by Warner Bros and Imagi Animation Studios will have more in common with the comic-book series and will be grittier than the previous live action pictures from a few years ago. The games are due for a release alongside the movie in early 2007, and Ubi has yet to announce which consoles they’re in development for but we are guessing PS3 and 360 versions will be on their list when announced. Here’s hoping Ubi’s efforts might hit the heights of the old Konami TMNT games from the 90’s and have very little in common with their recent efforts in the past few years.
