Just Blaze Discusses Working On New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Video Game

Although, Michael Bay might be content with bastardizing our collective childhoods with his upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle live-action film. (ALIENS, MIKE?!?!) Veteran hip-hop producer Just Blaze is helping to make sure Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s original vision for the ’80s cartoon favorite is kept pure in video game form.

On X-Box’s exclusive YouTube channel, Just Blaze discussed producing exclusive tracks for Activision’s new TNMT video game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows. Speaking on the project, Blaze said “It’s dope, every couple of years, to do a project that reminds you of what it was like to be eleven years old without a care in the world.”

Blaze also offered his endorsement for the new TNMT game “The thing I like about this was that it kind of feels like a modern take on the original Turtles game, which was definitely a classic in the ’80s. It definitely took a lot of quarters from me.” Considering Blaze’s legendary love of video games that speaks well for TNMT fans and people who enjoyed the classic ’80s arcade game.  At other points in the video, Just also spoke on relating to the brainy Donatello for his love of technology and his love of Raphael’s “cool but rude” attitude.

Peep the video above for the full interview. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows will be released on  August 28 for Xbox Live Arcade and Steam and on September 24 for PlayStation 3.
