“Activision is a leader in the gaming industry and we are honored to have them as the global video game partner for our new hit series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” said Sherice Torres, Senior Vice President of Entertainment Products, Nickelodeon Consumer Products, in a press release. “We are confident that these upcoming games will take gamers through interactive environments and action-packed adventures that truly capture the essence, tone and exciting elements of the Turtles.”
Kurt Niederloh, Vice President of Activision Publishing Minneapolis, Inc., added, “The fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are unique in that they span generations and are very passionate.
