4Kids will develop Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

4Kids Entertainment, Inc. and The Mirage Group announced an exclusive worldwide license agreement with Ubisoft to develop and publish Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video games based on the new CG feature-length film being produced by Imagi Animation Studios and to be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. Pictures and internationally by The Weinstein Company.

Under the Ubisoft agreement, it is expected that the video games will be available for gaming consoles in conjunction with the movie's planned release in early 2007. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie will be the first all CG animated movie in the history of the franchise. The PG-rated movie will derive its tone from the original comic-book series and will be grittier than the previous live action pictures.
