10 Characters I want in TMNT Smash-Up

Posted 11 years ago by Games

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles turn 25 years old this year, and Mirage is trying to take advantage of that by invading our lives with everything from classic toy reproductions to a Twitter account, TMNT movies on blu-ray, and even a brand spanking new video game.

The game is called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Smash-Up (official site here), and it’s being made by the team behind the Smash Brothers series, exclusively for the Wii. Love that logo! For a game thats supposedly not tied to any particular incarnation of the Turtles, it oozes nostalgia. The graphics, on the other hand, look like they were influenced heavily by the most recent CG movie.

The Roster

There aren’t many details around yet about any characters other than the Turltes and Splinter, but the Smash Bros games are known for their huge rosters, and in a couple interviews, crew from Ubisoft have stated that the yet-to-be-announced characters will hold some surprises.

Here are some of my hopes/predictions for the other characters in this game.

1. The Shredder

  • Probability: Without a doubt
  • Weapons: The blades all over his body

Pretty obvious choice. I’d say he’ll definitely be in the game, but what will he look like? A modernized version of the 80s cartoon, or will he be more in the style of the original comics?

2. Casey Jones

  • Probability: You may rely on it
  • Weapons: Golf club, cricket stick, baseball bat

It’d be hard to imagine a TMNT brawling game without Casey Jones, a natural-born-brawler. Expect some form of a cut-off shirt and his trademark hockey mask.
