Activision Announces The Legend of Korra for Fall 2014

/ Jun 27th, 2014 No Comments

The Legend of Korra

Nickelodeon and Activision are developing and publishing a video game adaptation of the popular series, The Legend of Korra. PlatinumGames is handling development duties on the digital title. The Legend of Korra launches later this Fall on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

The PlatinumGames developed adaptation is a single player action game. In the game, Korra can utilize her mastery of martial arts and the four elements of Bending to perform combos and counters against enemies.

Naga, Korra’s trusty polar bear-dog aids her throughout the game in high-speed travel segments. The game also recreates the animated series’ sport, Pro-Bending, down to the actual rules from the sport.

The Legend of Korra video game centers on Korra as the television show does. The game takes place between Book Two and Book Three of the animated series. Korra is the latest reincarnation of the Avatar. The Avatar can bend the four primal elements of nature at will, where most benders can only control a singular element.

Tim Hedrick, staff writer for the show, scripted the adaptation. Series co-creatores/exectuive producers, Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino consulted on the script. The game features cell-shaded graphics to help recreate the visual look and feel of the show to influence the action, elemental effects and animated story sequences.

Webfoot Technologies will develop a retail release of The Legend of Korra for the Nintendo 3DS. The 3DS version will feature a similar story to the PlatinumGames developed title, but in a turn-based strategy RPG title.

Fans can help select the cover art for the game by voting on The Legend of Korra’s official facebook page. The three concept covers have been drawn by Christie Tseng, a character designer for the show. Voting ends on June 30.

Quick Take

What a weird and delightful announcement! Video game adaptations of popular TV shows, movies, etc. are not uncommon, but they are generally easy to write-off. However, Nickelodeon and Activision are making that hard with The Legend of Korra by having PlatinumGames develop the title. The action game masters’ take on the series could be fantastic or a train wreck as adaptations generally are. It hard to judge anything based off of no actual gameplay, but Platinum working closely with key people involved in the show is promising. Hell, at least we can hope for a Bayonetta cameo somewhere, right?
