Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is a third-person hack and slash action game, based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, and using a cel-shaded artstyle. Players control one of the four Ninja Turtles, each with their own fighting style, while able to interchange ultimate abilities, and form attack combos. Collected Battle Points can be spent on upgrading the characters’ abilities, or purchase items. Only eight months following its release, the game was pulled from digital shelves due to licensing issues.
New York City has been invaded by mutants. Reporter April O’Neil sends messages to the Ninja Turtles of the problems arising throughout the city, so they can foil each of Shredder and Krang’s evil plots.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan received mixed to poor reviews with an average score of 48%, praised for its combat and online co-op, but criticized for lacking local co-op, repetitive gameplay, slow frame rate, and poor mission design.
This Platinum is a little above average due to one online trophy, and the grinding required, though still falls under a 2-star difficulty rating. At least two playthroughs are required, one of which on Hard mode. A chapter select means nothing is missable, but expect to do some backtracking and grinding. There are two online trophies, one for simply playing online, but the other can be tricky without boosting. Also, since the game was pulled from digital shelves in January 2017, finding online players legitimately may be a challenge.
Overall, expect around 25-30 hours for the Platinum.
NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 have a separate list from those on the PS3.
The difficulty related trophies do not stack, so you will need to do two full playthroughs, one on either Easy or Normal, and another on Hard mode.
Start by selecting either Easy or Normal, and play through the game. There is a chapter select, so none of the trophies are missable. However, if you wish to avoid a lot of backtracking later, it’s recommended to unlock as many as you can during your first playthrough. Be sure to check out the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutants in Manhattan trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details. Completing the game on either Easy or Normal will unlock The End? trophy.
Next, let’s get our Hard playthrough out of the way. Here, the enemies deal more damage while your starting health is lower. Also, there is a higher chance for a secret boss to appear, which will unlock the Party Crasher trophy. Completing the game on Hard mode will unlock the Veteran trophy.
With those two playthroughs done, it’s time to begin the grinding. Use the chapter select to go back and mop up the remaining offline trophies you still need. Again, check out the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutants in Manhattan trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you still need, and their requirements. Also, keep in mind that whenever working towards any grinding-related trophies, you will need to complete that level in order for your progress to be saved.
At any point, you can head into multiplayer to unlock the two online trophies. For the Nice To Meet You trophy, all you need to do is play online for a few minutes. However, the Sorry Not Sorry trophy can be tricky if not boosted. This requires all four online players to perform a communication action during the snapshot, just as the boss is defeated. This is tricky, because everyone needs to be on-board with this. If you’re having difficulty with this, or even finding online players, check out the boosting forums under our Links tab. Also, it should be noted that the Next Time Take A Cab trophy can be challenging to do in single-player, but much easier with an online co-op partner.
