At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con Nickelodeon will debut a brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle VR experience designed to immerse fans in an animated version of New York City. The VR experience will be based on the reimagined Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, not the classic show or the current live action films.
Fans at Comic-Con this year will reportedly be able to “have a conversation with Mikey or Donnie” inside VR as the characters will be voiced live on the scene by Brandon Mychal Smith and Josh Brener, respectively.
Here’s the opening animation for the new show:
Inside the experience users will stand on a rooftop of the animated New York City skyline and chat with still-frame versions of the iconic characters.
The experience will be titled Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Live and it’s being created by Nickelodeon’s Entertainment Lab. The internal studio has already created Slime Zone, a social VR experience for IMAX VR centers, and is invested in Dreamscape Immersive for other location-based VR content.
There will also be a panel about the new series on July 19th. There’s not much chance of this getting released for at-home headsets at all, but if you plan on going and intend to check this out, let us know down in the comments below!
