Those jovial artists are back in action, and Ubisoft is keen to give you a taste of painter-pie by releasing a demo for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on PC, which you can find elsewhere on the magical Internet.

You'll be able to whet your taste for rooftop aqua-batics by playing as Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo, who will battle diverse enemies using unique brotherly tag-team ninja-moves, presumably whilst talking about pizza and shouting "cowabunga".

The full game is due out on 23rd March on just about every console imaginable, except PS3. Slightly bizarre, then, that the release date is the same as Sony's next-gen console launch in Europe.

Ubisoft's game will arrive shortly before the release of the new Turtles CGI film, and tells the tale of a New York riddled with crime that only our high-kicking amphibians can rectify.

Unfortunately Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo soon begin to lose faith and focus in retaining, and it soon boils down to the efforts of Leonardo and rat-face Splinter to re-unite the gang and save the day.

We also think you should check out the 'making of' video that's on Eurogamer TV.
