Platinum Games is set to develop a game based off of the animated series, The Legend of Korra
, for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. This comes from a deal between Activision Publishing and Nickelodeon.
The Legend of Korra video game follows Korra, a strong-willed young woman who, as the reincarnation of the Avatar, can bend the four primal forces of nature to her will. Scripted by staff writer Tim Hedrick and consulted by series co-creators and executive producers Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino, the game's original adventure takes place between Books Two and Three of the TV program allowing for an authentic Avatar experience. The game’s cell-shaded visuals recreate the beautiful look and immersive feel of the show, with colorful, vivid detail going into every action, elemental effect and animated story sequence.
The Legend of Korra is a single player, action-packed brawler, in which Korra's mastery of martial arts and the four elements – fire, earth, air, and water – can be used on the fly to bolster her combos and counters against foes. Throughout the game, Korra's polar bear-dog, Naga, will aid her in high-speed traversal segments. The game also brings to life the series' competitive sport, Pro-Bending, in which teams of three use the elements to fight for territory in an arena.
This game will be pure Platinum and will feature fast, over the top combat. It's slated to be released this Fall.
There will be a 3DS version coming from Webfoot Technologies. That particular game will be a turn-based strategy RPG.
