Earlier this year, Paramount hinted at the development of a video game inspired by the widely popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles graphic novel, The Last Ronin. While updates have been scarce, an exciting teaser trailer was unveiled during today’s THQ Nordic Digital Showcase. However, the trailer did not provide a glimpse of gameplay or any additional details.
The Last Ronin graphic novel narrative revolves around the last surviving member of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who embarks on a journey for vengeance in a post-apocalyptic New York City. The latest synopsis, along with the trailer, strongly suggests that the game will reflect this storyline. “Who is the Last Ronin? In a future, battle-ravaged New York City, a lone surviving Turtle embarks on a seemingly hopeless mission seeking justice for the family he lost. From the minds of the creators of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and based on the best-selling comic book event by Eastman, Waltz, Bishop, Delgado, and the Escorza Brothers: the official video game adaptation of TMNT: The Last Ronin.”
In a previous interview with Polygon, the senior vice president for games and emerging media at Paramount Global revealed that TMNT: The Last Ronin will be a single-player action RPG, drawing comparisons to the modern God of War series. The game is set to exhibit a mature tone, catering to enthusiasts of the comic series. However, it was emphasized that the release of the game is still years away.
While a specific launch window for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin has not been announced, it is confirmed to be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC platforms.
