Activision's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming October 22

Activision has formally announced a release date for their new game based on Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series. The game will come October 22 and it will be developed by Magic Pockets (Mini Ninjas on DS) as a side-scrolling beat-'em-up and feature four-player drop-in, drop-out co-op.

Nickelodeon's recent take on the Heroes in a Half-Shell sees the Turtles taking on the villainous Shredder, while simultaneously fending off an invasion of the alien Kraang, who are now an entire race of pink aliens (voiced by Uncharted's Nolan North) and not just a single pink alien in a cheesy suit. The game appears to be designed in the vein of the classic arcade titles.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is coming to Xbox 360, Wii (not Wii U, curiously), and 3DS.
