The combined forces of Nickelodeon and Activision today have finally launched The Legend of Korra, a single-player, third-person action title based on Nickelodeon’s fan-favorite, animated series. Developed by PlatinumGames, this original title is out today worldwide as a digital release on PS4, PS3 and PC. The game also arrives tomorrow on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra follows Korra, a passionate young woman and the reincarnation of the Avatar, a supreme being granted mastery over the four elements of nature: fire, earth, air and water. The game’s story, crafted by series staff writer Tim Hedrick in association with co-creators and executive producers Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino, bridges Books Two and Three of the series and features gorgeous cel-shaded artwork, animated story sequences and voice talent from the show’s cast.
True to PlatinumGames’ legacy, The Legend of Korra is a fast-paced brawler focused on combo-heavy martial arts combat with exceptional style. Each of Korra’s elemental abilities packs a unique punch, brought to life with brilliant color and detail. The title also features high-speed running levels with Korra’s trusted polar bear dog companion, Naga, and the franchise’s in-universe arena sport, Pro-Bending, in which teams of three use the elements to compete for battlefield territory.
The Legend of Korra video game is now available for PS4, PS3 and PC $14.99. Again, it will be available tomorrow, October 22nd for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
