Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare is a video game that was released for the Gamecube, Playstation 2, Ninendo DS, and Xbox in 2005. The game is loosely based on the 2003 TMNT series' third season. This is the first TMNT game to be rated E10+.
The game spans four different chapters, called "Episodes" (one is unlocked at the third Episode's conclusion). Each Episode is a separate storyline in and of itself.
Episode 1: Trouble With TriceratonsEdit
The Triceratons have come to Earth in an attempt to find The Fugitoid. The Turtles protect the professor, and then follow the Triceratons into space when April and Casey are captured by the saurian aliens.
Episode 2: Bishop's GambitEdit
Episode 3: ExodusEdit
Oroku Saki, pretending to be a caring businessman, has begun salvaging Triceraton technology from New York City, with the intention of using said technology to blast off into space and hunt down the Utroms.
The fourth Episode counts as a bonus Episode that can be optionally completed following Episode 3. The Nightmare episode involves Ultimate Drako, the physical fusion of Drako and The Ultimate Ninja, stealing Lord Simultaneous' Time Scepter and sending the four Turtles and Splinter into four separate dimensions. Unlike the TV series, all four Turtles are present in each world, and Leonardo's Nightmare is a completely different world from Miyamoto Usagi's dimension.

The Turtles end up in a dystopian future ruled by The Shredder. The Turtles battle Foot Ninja, Mousers, and the Amazonian Blade Bots for a chance to confront Shredder and eradicate him once and for all.
A world awaits the Turtles where the main villain is none other than a malicious version of their own father, known as The Sliver!
The Turtles are forced to face ghostlike visages of their fallen foes in a strange world ruled by an even stranger entity.
The Turtles return to their own world to stop the menace of Ultimate Drako once and for all!
The player is able to allocate skill scrolls and experience points to upgrade their Turtles. Furthermore, they can transform their Turtles into "Dino Turtles", which resemble Turtle/Ankylosaur hybrids, and "Ultimate Turtles", which resemble the Mystic Fury TMNT action figures, and the later power-ups they are given by the Ninja Tribunal.
Upon clearing Episode 1, players unlock the arcade version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time.
