Nickelodeon’s successful follow up to Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, will finally be receiving its video game due later this year and what better company to develop it then The Wonderful 101, Metal Gear Rising and Bayonetta developers, Platinum Games.
The announcement comes a few days before the release of Season 3, Platinum announced that they will be working with show scribe Tim Hedrick to fit the game in between Season Two and Three. The game will focus on Korra’s established strengths adding fire, water, earth and air bending to an assortment of punches, kicks and counter abilities. Screenshots have shown off some impressive cel-shade graphics, including scenes involving riding her Polar-Dog, Naga through Republic City.
The game will be downloadable and is set for a PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC launch this fall with Activision Publishing. Activison also announced a 3DS title in the works from Webfoot Technologies. Which will be a Strategy RPG.
Before people jump to conclusions about the game, I would just like to point out that they took a scrapped Kojima game and turned into one of the best beat’em up games of last year. The game is already Platinum doing what they do best, hopefully they’ll be successful a second time
