Turtles sequel due in early 2005

BattleNexus will debut on GBA in November, with other platforms due later on. Details inside.

Konami has announced that the four-player Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: BattleNexus will be released in Europe in Q1 2005 on PS2, Xbox, Cube and PC, while the Game Boy Advance enjoys a matinee showing of sorts sometime this November.

TMNT2 will be along much the same lines as its predecessor, which was basically a cel-shaded scrolling beat-'em-up in the same vein as games like Final Fight, and this time promises five game worlds packed with enemies and end-of-level boss encounters lifted from the TV series - and a storyline based around plots from the second season of the show.

There will also be a "BattleNexus" mode for multiplayer battle, and an "Antique Shop" where you can access stuff unlocked by your single-player exploits. Konami has also revealed that you'll have more than 30 moves - including character-specific efforts - to make use of, and that the original early 90s arcade game will be included somewhere as an unlockable, which is bound to appeal to some.

We'll let you know whether TMNT2 overcomes its predecessor's failings when we get our hands on it early next year. Lord knows we want a decent Turtles game!
