For the past few years, IDW has been publishing a new TMNT comic called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past. Now a new tabletop game is on the way that sets itself within that continuity.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures is both a co-op and a 4 vs. 1 adventure, and comes with 30 new miniatures of TMNT’s most iconic characters. Some of the TMNT crew is personally involved in this product: Pete Walsh and Dan Lansdown, admins of the Shadows of the Past online community, are serving as game designers, while Kevin Wilson, the designer of Shadows of the Past, will oversee the game’s development.
“We are looking forward to continuing with more Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stories on the tabletop!” says Jerry Bennington, IDW Publishing’s VP of New Product Development. “The fans are excited for more, and Pete and Dan have expanded on the amazing game system built by Kevin Wilson to create a foundation for great gameplay and storytelling. With new art and miniatures, TMNT fans are going to have a lot of fun with these new games.”
The Kickstarter campaign for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures will begin this January, and cover the first two volumes: Change Is Constant and City Fall. You may get to demo the game as soon as tomorrow: a prototype version will be on hand at PAX Unplugged this weekend. Look for the IDW Games booth, #3148.
