You might remember hearing that Ubisoft is working on a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game that will be a 4-player fighting game similar to Smash Bros.
Well, as it turns out, it has more in common with Smash Bros. than originally thought. According to Edge Online, it's being developed by Game Arts, who, as you probably know, worked on Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
In other news, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings has been announced for the Wii, DS, and I assume the PS2. 1up has the teaser trailer. I wonder if the graphics in the actual game will look anywhere as good as they do in this trailer?

Gametrailers also added twotrailers of the game some time ago.
If the giant mushroom death is any indication, the game will be stuffed with goofy hazards causing you to die in different ways. The website shows your dude gets sliced in half when killed by the spikey ball.
Good thing I'm not the only one who thought of that.
I do hope the jokes get better than what we've seen. The shit stains from crawling out of the pipe looks like something I saw in an amateur Flash cartoon with sprites.
What would make this game really awesome is if the challenge actually did manage to rival that of a garden variety Mario game, but I think I might be asking for too much with that one.
PS: Does anybody but me find it ironic how SEGA's refused to tap into their own mascot's past for a new game and instead decided to choose their former rival's instead? I'd have gladly taken a Sonic the Hedgehog 4 over this if it turned out good.
Has anyonw here heard of the NDS shump called Big Bang Mini, it's only $19.99 in the US (it just got released) and it's supposed to be a really good game and an original concept for shoot em up games.
The main reason is that your firing and ship control is is done by dragging (the ship) and swiping upwards (to shoot) fireworks, the catch with the fireworks is that if you miss, they explode and fall back down on to the touch screen where they can hurt you, so your own bad accuracy can actually kill you.
The game even has Wi-Fi Connection for uploading highscores.

I have to admit this game actually sounds good.
