No, this has nothing to do with Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Instead this new game is based off the Nickelodeon cartoon which isn't horrible.
This game however? It looks worse than horrible.

I just can't even find the words. The animation appears to be imported from 1996. I fully expected to see that stupid Natalya from Golden Eye getting stuck in a door.
When there is an 8-bit mini-game on your cartoon's site that has better graphics and looks to have more entertaining gameplay, things are not good. Certainly not something you'd expect from Activision.
This is a four player co-op side scroller that has no firm release date yet, just sometime in 2013.
I don't suppose a release date really matters though, as it would probably be best to just skip this game and wait for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows which is due out on August 28th.
