The Legend of Korra, the sequel to the hugely popular Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender, is getting a game of its own, by none other than Platinum Games and being published by Activision . It will be a third-person action game and be digitally download title that will launch this Fall on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the PC. There will also be a Nintendo 3DS title by a different developer, Webfoot Technologies and instead of being an action game, it’s a turn-based strategy game. You can watch the announcement trailer below.
Korra scribe Tim Hedrick is writing the story, which takes place between The Legend of Korra’s second and third seasons. As the series’ leading lady, players will use the Avatar’s fire, earth, air, and water elements in combat to fight familiar enemies such as Mecha Tanks and Chi Blockers, as well as other Benders in the 3-on-3 Pro-Bending arena.
A Webfoot Technologies-developed turn-based strategy version of The Legend of Korra will also hit Nintendo 3DS this year. Where Platinum’s action game is all about fast-paced martial-art combat, the 3DS game will “focus on tactically maneuvering Korra and her allies on the battlefield.”
