Earlier this week IDW Games announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past – a scenario-driven, big box Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles adventure game. Debuting in early 2016, TMNT: Shadows of the Past will allow 2-5 players the chance to battle through a series of missions – developing their character’s strength, fighting styles, and equipment along the way.
I’m so excited to participate in this game! Working with IDW on their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics has been amazing, and now to get the chance to go even deeper into the story and have fans play out key moments from the series for themselves is something that’s really going to blow people away.

Working closely with the comics creative team, TMNT: Shadows of the Past should provide strong story cohesion between the books and the board game – thus appealing to fans of the series and newbies alike. Furthermore IDW Games have promised additional life beyond the base experience with ongoing expansion packs drawing from the different micro-series and extensive cast of characters.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has 30 years of history, and we plan on tapping into all of it with this game. Whether you’ve been a fan since the beginning or you’re just starting to realize how special these characters are, this game is a great way to dive into the sewers and start exploring!
