Transformers cartoon. Originally released in 2014, to hit features a huge cast of characters representing several pantheons of gods and mythical figures from around the world. Seeing the crossover of the Greek god Zeus take on Thor from Norse mythology was already a big part of the game’s appeal, and developer Titan Forge has extended that to pop culture cameos in recent years to keep the game fresh.

The cast of Nickelodeon Avatar: The Last Airbender appears in to hit recently, alongside the suite series The legend of Korra. These characters have powers in line with many mythological figures, so their inclusion as skins last June makes some sense. While there are some characters in the game who wield melee weapons, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are more dubious inclusions, though any 80s kid will likely ignore the logical inconsistencies in order to shake up their favorite party turtle all the time. by defending the elders.
