A new launch trailer from Activision and Red Fly Studios offers up a pretty good idea of the fully realized gameplay -- Arkham Asylum-style fighting with four player co-op, lots of weapon-based moves, and one really giant, two-headed mouser. Since it's not a direct tie-in to Nickelodeon's current CG series (or IDW's ongoing comic, for that matter), it bears a distinct visual style to boot. Check it out after the jump.
It's all been leading up to this. After a season spent unlocking the mysteries of the extradimensional Kraang menace, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael must rally to thwart the brainy mutagen manufacturers' invasion of New York City. Airing August 8 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hourlong season one finale, "Showdown" will see the Turtles and their allies infiltrate The Kraang's Techno-Cosmic Research Institute HQ in a bid to shut down their portal to Dimension X. Will the band of pizza-loving brothers be able to save the day against an army of brainy bad guys and their nearly-indestructable technology?

While many fans' minds are justifiably tuned into the looming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series' season one finale, Nickelodeon let loose a highly anticipated season two reveal during Comic-Con just the same. The newest incarnation of Casey Jones is set to join the show this fall in season two - and he's going to knock the daylights out of a redesigned Mutagen Man, among other bad guys.
Nickelodeon's first trailer for The Legend of Korra - Book 2: Spirit has arrived online, giving fans their first big taste of the Avatar: The Last Airbender sequel's second season. Set to debut in September, Book 2 will begin to more fully explore new Avatar Korra's connection to the spirit world, and its reaction to the technological sprawl of the modern nations.
Following last week's announcement of Legend of Korra: Enhanced Experience, the free app that gives fans of the show an early look at the upcoming season, and the reveal of some of the upcoming characters for Book Two (or season two), Nickelodeon has now revealed some of the series new voice actors. Joining the cast are Parks and Recreation's Aubrey Plaza, Dexter's James Remar, House's Lisa Edelstein, and more.
It feels like it's been forever since the first season of The Legend of Korra ended, and to be honest, I was starting to worry that it wouldn't be coming back. Fortunately, we can now rest easy in the knowledge that everyone's favorite Avatar is on her way back. Tomorrow, Nickelodeon is launching the Legend of Korra: Enhanced Experience, a free app that'll give fans a peek at the upcoming season -- including character designs for Korra's iceberg-throwing cousins.

At Toy Fair 2013, Playmates revealed a much sharper take on the Shredster that will feature a removable helmet, a righteous cape and overall improved posability - but San Diego Comic-Con 2013 attendees can snag an extra shiny version of it this July.
Nickelodeon's CG animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series is getting a video game tie-in of sorts with the Out of the Shadows brawler by Red Fly Studios later this summer, but those seeking an earlier and more direct gaming option may be pleased to find out that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Rooftop Run will debut on iOS devices this Thursday.
