Ubisoft gets Turtles license

Movie tie-ins out next year.

Ubisoft has picked up the rights to develop and publish a whole bunch of games based on the forthcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles license.

The movie is being brought to you by Warner Bros and Imagi Animation Studios, and apparently it will "derive its tone from the original comic-book series and will be grittier than the previous live action pictures." It'll still be a PG, though.

The games are due for a release alongside the movie in early 2007, and Ubi has yet to announce which consoles they're in development for. All of them, most probably.

Konami previously owned the Turtles license, but subsequent games never really managed to hit the heady heights of the original 1989 side-scrolling arcade classic. The big green fellows are still jolly popular with the kids though - the TV shown is still shown in 90 countries around the globe.

Cowabunga or whatever.
