Earth.Water.Fire.Air. Only the Avatar can master all four elements and fight a ridiculously over the top monster battle as I hypothesise what can possibly happen when the studio behind Bayonetta and Vanquish give their own spin on that popular franchise.
In news that I absolutely would not have seen coming in a million years, one of my favourite game development studios is indeed tackling one of my favourite cartoons. And that’s about all I know actually. Here’s the first teaser trailer which hints at some of the action that will take place, as this game is set between season 2 and 3 of the Nicklelodeon series:
And then we have some screenshots, which show Korra on the move, some pro-bending competition and a fight or two with various Equalist forces:
If you have zero idea what I’m talking about, then you’re missing out on one of the best cartoons in recent memory. A successor to the original show, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra follows a new Avatar and her fight to save the world from all manner of trouble. Over two seasons, we’ve seen the rise of an anti-vending movement, the return of the spirit world and the origins of the entire season as viewers learnt how mankind discovered the ability to bend the elements in the first place.
And that’s not even mentioning the fantastic animation and action that comes with each episode. Further details on the game are locked up tight right now, but I’m curious to see how much content Platinum can throw into a downloadable title. Fans can also vote on their favourite box art, before the game launches:
Big news! The Legend of Korra video game is launching this Fall on Xbox One and Xbox 360 (via Xbox Game Store), PS3 and PS4 (via PlayStation Network) and Steam… and YOU can pick the packaging. Check out these concept art designs and let us know which should be the final cover art… GO!
Needs more Pabu. The third season of the show kicks off this Friday as well. Which means that right now, it’s a good time to be a fan of bending.
