Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Battle Nexus is a video game based on second season of 2003 animated series. It features levels based on episodes: Search for Splinter (Parts1,2), Turtles in Space (Parts 1,2,3,4,5)Secret Origins, What a Crok!, Return to the Underground, Ultimate Ninja, and Rouge in the House.
Unlike 2003's game, Battle Nexus supports four players. Each player may select a "team" that is color-coordinated to represent each Turtle - Blue for Leonardo, Red for Raphael, Orange for Michelangelo, and Purple for Donatello. Every team must be present in the game, and any team not selected by a player initially will be available during the game to cycle through. Initially, only the four Turtles are available for their respective teams, but one other character will become available for play for each team as the game progresses - Slashuur on Blue, Casey Jones on Red, Karai on Orange, and Splinter on Purple.
Each team has their own specific abilities that can help players progress through the game. Blue Team can attack while dashing, and cut through certain obstacles (grates, trees, bamboo, et cetera). Red Team can lift and push certain heavy objects. Orange team can reflect arrows with their guard (and Michelangelo can fly with his nunchucks). Purple team can utilize computer consoles (and Donatello can fire a laser instead of throwing shuriken).
