Poll: So let's talk about the Ninja Turtles...

...and how THIS

IS NOT. FUCKING. FUNNY
Not Spawn not Constantine not Batgirl or Wildcat or even Rorschach BUT THIS

Now don't get me wrong, Ladies, gentlemen and those that crawled out of the same salt mines I just came from, I like me some Ninja Turtles.

But not like this, never like this.

Next time I get my hands on a meat cleaver I'm making turtle steak

I liked it. Voices sounded solid, no rapping.
The character designs aren't as good as the last cartoon series (TMNT 2012) but they also aren't as horrible the current live-action garbage.

This is why I'm waiting for the GOTY/Complete Edition for this game.
No point in paying 60USD to 90USD for an incomplete game that requires even MORE money to unlock various new characters.

I'm just disappointed mainly.

I was really getting hyped for other characters since Fighter Pack 1 was pretty great. But then 2 had freaking Raiden and now this. I'm not a particularly big fan of the turtles as is, I mean I loved the first two movies and turtles in time but I just really am not happy with all the missed opportunities so far.

If they acted as one character that would be sick, but if they're all just moveset changes that would be disappointing.

Makes about as much sense as putting Jason Vorhees in Mortal Kombat.

More even, the Ninja Turtles are DC canon.

I'm waiting for the Scooby gang.

How does having all four of the TMNT work? If they "work as a team" then does that mean you can switch them around mid battle? Fighting Batman with Leonardo isn't working so you swap out for Raphael for some different moves and playstyle? Are they all individual characters and you could pit them against each other in a match? Are they all going to work the same and just be reskins of each other?

I'm disappointed that all the non-returning characters from Injustice 1 haven't been restored (RIP Shazam, RIP Lobo, RIP Solomon Grundy, RIP Hawkgirl, RIP Raven, etc. etc.), but I'm not even slightly upset upset about any of these new characters. I'm sure the turtles will be fun to play both as and against. If anything, it's cool to see a triple A game dev making weird, risky moves like that.

This is the only thing that's actually got me wanting to play the game in a long time.
But I'm a huge TMNT fan. The real problem Injustice has is the fucking DC movies making them put out characters people don't care about.

While I'm still miffed that they don't have Constantine I'm alright with the turtles

Only reason i'm getting the game

I don't see waht the big deal is. I am not fan of Injustice, but just be happy the game is still getting support.

I do like they based the turtles design from the live action 90s film. Mainly 1 & 2.

I admit that I didn't see that coming. I imagine that it'll work like Triborg did.

*Shrug* Before Iron Man 2, not 1 in 1000 non-comic readers knew who Black Widow was and even a fair amount of comic readers didn't know or care who she was. Now she's in every Marvel game that they put out. As such, having Enchantress or Atom (although I'm kinda concerned about his gameplay) doesn't really bug me.

Dude, it's the fricken Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And not the Bay version! This is the best kind of surprise character. I would have taken Batgirl or Lobo over The Atom, though.

You need an option for "I loved it." Because that is mine.

This is a fighting game about having comic book character hitting each other. The TMNT are far more appropriate for the setting than Scorpion, Raiden or Leatherface.

I like when they are allowed to go wild with which characters to include. It is a lot better than having yet another Batman family member, or an out of place MK character.

The Best Ninja Turtles for me was the 2003 series:

Well, people like it... 49K likes vs. 3K dislikes on that trailer...

I was surprised, but I bought the game for my son, so for my house it's his opinion that mattered.

And he almost shit himself over the reveal, and talked about it for an hour, so I'm good on it.

Glad to see another 03 fan.

So you can have each player fight with a ninja turtle of their choice? And that's somehow a bad thing? My 30 year old sister will be thrilled. We grew up on ninja turtles and fighting games. So to have a fighting game where we could each play with our favorite turtle against each other is kind of amazing. Fuckin' bastards might have just sold their game to me. I was not at all interested in Injustice 2.

You should take solace in the that only 1 slot was dedicated to crossover characters. MKX's character packs had 4 characters and 2 of them were slasher villains.

I have it on good authority that ever since MK9 the most sold DLC characters in Netherrealm's games are the crossover characters, so Freddy in MK9, Scorpion in IJ1, the menagerie of slasher villains in MKX and so forth. Is what it is.

Atleast they're doing a neat thing here, since the Turtles are originally comic book characters. Even though they are using the iconic trilogy/first cartoon renditions of them. Plus, the comic book version of the characters would be more appropriate in Mortal Kombat.

I honestly have no idea, but my assumption was that maybe they worked like Captain Commando, with you playing as Leo and summoning the others in for assists using special inputs.

I'm not much of a fighting gamer, but I enjoy watching it on Youtube. This reveal got an amused nod from me. The fact that they really stick out just makes me really curious to see how they'll interact with the other characters. I guess the stakes aren't as high when my form of enjoyment doesn't cost me anything.

That's also fair.

Still though they knew EXACTLY who they wanted to piss off when they went out of their way to use the trenchcoat and fedora outfits before the final reveal.

What are you talking about, they weren't trying to piss anyone off. The turtles in a trench coat and fedora have been in almost every iteration.

I KNOW that the outfits already exist, but they didn't need to have them use it either

They didn't have to do anything like you are getting mad over a tiny reference that lasted for like 6 seconds

Yes I am mad, I'll most likely get over it in a week but for now yes, I am mad.

So till then I'm going to stay pissed about everything involved in this reveal because I was very much hoping for anyone else but this and after that probably just go do something else then forget this ever happened.
