GameSpot’s Maxwell McGee caught up with Red Fly Studio’s Chris Frechette and Kris Taylor to discuss designing the Turtles for TMNT: Out of the Shadows.

Contrary to the excitement of the announcement, the first glance at the Turtles of TMNT: Out of the Shadows caught many off guard. These Turtles were grittier, scarier, and more realistic than ever before.

Fans were put to ease when IGN released a gameplay commentary video, showing off TMNT:OotS’s Arkham Asylum/City brawling mechanics and refines Turtle animations.

Now, to put our doubts further to rest, GameSpot’s Maxwell McGee caught up with Red Fly Studio’s Chris Frechette and Kris Taylor to discuss designing the Turtles for TMNT: Out of the Shadows:

“One of our main goals when we started this project was: if you see one of these turtles alone and without any color identification, you need to know who it is.”

“We worked really hard with [Haunte] to develop these shape symbols, which helped define the turtles both mentally and physically. You’ll notice Leonardo is a triangle, which is a focused and sharp shape because he’s the focused leader of the group. That shape is worked into his physique, his face, and even the angles of his eyes. I think that really helped us get these characters feeling as unique as they do. Now when I see them, I have no question of who’s who. They all have their own identities.” – Kris Taylor, TMNT: Out of the Shadows Developer, Red Fly Studio
