Expanding on the teaser trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Activision and Red Fly Studios have given IGN a chance to take a spin of the Pre Alpha version of the upcoming 4-player brawler. Due out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Steam this summer, Out of the Shadows will let players connect online or in person (with two-player local, four players online) and battle the foot clan as Leonardo, Donetello, Raphael and Michelangelo. The game's overal aesthetic has been something of a surprise to fans of Nickelodeon's current CG animated series since it's a slightly more realistic departure from the show's more cartoony style, but apparently the game's mechanics, tone and storyline are fitting with the show and are intended to appeal to a fanbase that spans several generations.

IGN has confirmed that each turtle is balanced differently, with distinct moves and stats, and that all of the turtles can team up for an array of combos. Overall, IGN seemed impressed with the game so far, although they've still got questions about the finished product, including what its final graphics will look like.
