Activision Announces The Legend of Korra

By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
When you mention Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Burning Earth, the chances are that the only thing that will spring to mind is easy achievements. Most of you won't have played the game past the first five minutes, so are likely to care little about the game's origins amongst the animated TV series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. Well, that TV series spawned a sequel: The Legend of Korra. First aired in 2012, the ongoing series follows Avatar Korra, the successor to Aang from The Last Airbender. Now this new series will create its own video game: The Legend of Korra.

Developer Platinum Games is in charge of telling the story of Korra and her ability to bend the four primal forces of nature -- fire, earth, air and water. This can strengthen her combos and counter attacks as she heads on an original single-player adventure that will take place in between Books Two and Three of the animated TV series. The game's story is written by Tim Hedrick, who has written episodes of The Legend of Korra and Avatar: The Last Airbender. He is supported by Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino, the series' co-creators and executive producers.

As well as the brawling, Korra will be transported through "high-speed traversal segments" by her polar bear-dog Naga. Players will also be able to experience the competitive sport of Pro-Bending, where teams of three have to use their mastery of nature's primal forces to fight for territory within an arena.
