At Origins, WizKids announced a partnership with Nickelodeon to produce multiple tabletop games based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, including a TMNT HeroClix figures set and TMNT Dice Masters game releasing later this year.

The deal will include all iterations of the comics from classic to present day, as well as both the classic cartoon and current CG-animated series.

"The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are classic and beloved characters, and we can't wait to see them integrated into WizKids' tabletop games," said Nickelodeon’s Senior Vice President, Global Toys and Publishing Manuel Torres. "We are as excited as our fans are to see Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello, Shredder and more come to life in HeroClix and Dice Masters."

Wizkids’ Marvel Dice Masters was recently awarded an Origins Vanguard Award (see “Origins Vanguard Award Winners Announced”) and the popular Quarriors!-style dice-building battle game has already been expanded to include DC Comics, Yu-Gi-Oh! and Dungeons & Dragons releases.
