The agreement comes as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles make their long-awaited return to our screens. 4Kids Entertainment, Inc. has launched a new animated show that has recently debuted in the US, and the PAL version of the game will be released to coincide with its European TV premier.

Konami of Europe has already enjoyed great success with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise with a series of arcade and home titles in the early 90s, and is committed to releasing a succession of strong titles based on the series.
"The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise has been a key contributor in the growth of Konami as a video game publisher and we welcome it back into the fold," said Kunio Neo, President, Konami of Europe. "Konami is committed to bringing the Ninja Turtles back as video game heroes in the best titles imaginable, and look forward to seeing them brought to life for today's powerful games hardware."
The first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle game will be released for PlayStation 2 in 2003; price TBC. Additional versions for leading formats will follow. For more information please contact Steve Merrett at Rocket Media Ltd on 0207 437 6100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
