Ubisoft has signed an exclusive worldwide licence agreement to develop and publish Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle video games based on the upcoming feature film (expected to be released in early 2007). Konami had the original licence to produce TMNT games, but Ubisoft has now taken its place.

The upcoming film, and the related video games, are said to be in more in line with the original TMNT comic books. This is welcome news for those of us who read the comics, which were darker, grittier and more violent than the world of pizza-eating, surfer-talking turtle dudes that are the mainstream ninja turtles.
