Mirage, 4Kids and Playmates Toys have agreed upon a new direction for the 2008 post-Fast Forward television series (Season 8), one that takes some of the more realistic (and less humorous) elements of the "Overload" concept (blogged below somewhere) and marries it to the 2K3 and FF continuity. While I'm not allowed to divulge too much just yet, I can quote this from the actual pitch:
"The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back in New York, ready to race across the rooftops and take on all challengers!
"Not only are Casey and April back and ready to bust some bad guy butt, but a brand new, super advanced Turtle Lair is under construction (thanks to some hi-tech know-how Donatello garnered from the future), and, of course, there are all sorts of new heavy duty Turtle vehicles gearing up to roar down the streets of NYC and give the Foot a taste of some serious Turtle firepower!
"The stakes have never been higher, their enemies have never been stronger... and if the Turtles are going to be triumphant they’ll need to work together in ways they never have before."
The animation style will also be a bit more streamlined or stylized (depending on your point of view) in order to bring the per episode budget down a bit... but it won't be as low as these Mii avatars. I hope.
