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.”

    And what of the Wii U? Why are developers such morons…

    • Giordan

      It’s Activision, dude.

      But platinum has WiiU exclusives, should take advantage of the audience. I’d buy it for my WiiU, not gonna get it any other way.

    • Kroisos

      Platinum develops for the systems the publishers tell them to. B2 and TW101 are Nintendo-exclusive because Nintendo is paying. Scalebound is X1-exclusive because Microsoft is paying. Korra will come to the systems Activision wants to come to.

      That said, I do agree that Platinum has a good reputation with Wii U owners right now, and that Activision should take advantage of that. They don’t even have to sell that many copies to justify the decision, because developing for one additional console when you’re already coming to five isn’t that much more expensive.

    • Giordan

      Whether it’s multi platform or not is up to the PUBLISHER, not the DEVELOPER.

  • James Best

    No Wii U version…sigh…

  • TrueWiiMaster

    Sounds interesting, but without a Wii U version I probably won’t get it.

  • StingFan

    Vote on cover art? For a digital title? I must be missing something.

    I love the responses Kamiya has for his tweets. I’d buy him a beer if I could.
