The lights are on
Activision and Platinum Games are teaming up for a game based on Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra. The title is a martial arts action game, in which players can use all of the titular character’s avatar elemental abilities in combat.
The Platinum Games take on The Legend of Korra cartoon will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC this fall. The console versions will also feature 3-on-3 multiplayer. A strategy title is also in development for 3DS by Webfoot Technologies.
The story, which is being written by series writer Tim Hendrick, will take place between show’s second and third seasons. The third season will begin airing this Friday on Nickelodeon.
Our TakeI’ve watched a bit of Avatar: The Last Airbender, and I’ve always meant to go back and finish. I’ve heard a lot of praise of The Legend of Korra, and this might be enough to motivate me to catch up.
