Konami announced yesterday that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare will be released at an undisclosed date for the Nintendo DS, GameCube, PlayStation 2, and Xbox. The game introduces a new experience point system, character evolution, and improved fighting with multiplayer capabilities. The old-school arcade game will be available as an unlockable.
TMNT3 for the PlayStation 2, Xbox and Nintendo GameCube puts more of a focus on teamwork, character development and control than any other console Turtles game to date. Gamers can play as their favorite Turtle alone or with up to three friends, earning experience points along the way as they slash and bash Foot Ninjas and powerful, well-known bosses from the TMNT universe. These experience points allow players to improve and evolve their TurtlesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ traits and abilities for more varied, powerful attacks.
The Ninja Scroll System is another new feature on TMMT3. Being able to select which ninja scrolls to use allows the Turtles to use various special abilities strategically. Cooperative play lies at the heart of TMNT3 and gamers who team up with friends for multiplayer action are rewarded with exclusive features such as Cooperative Attack for even more shell shocking damage to enemies. The effect of this attack changes depending on the number of players working together (between 2-4 players).
