Platinum Games Is Making A Video Game Adaptation Of Hit Nickelodeon Show ‘Legend Of Korra’

Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra has proven to be another amazing show that has brought major benefits to the network.

Coming off as the true successor to their previous amazing show, Avatar: The Last Airbender, the new show seems to take into account that its fan base has grown up, and the stories in The Legend of Korra take a more adult approach with their situations. So, when The Inquisitr reported season three clips, it got a lot of attention from fans.

Now, it has been reported that Platinum Games, the company behind games like Metal Gear Rising: Revergence and the upcoming Bayonetta 2, will be heralding the video game adaptation of The Legend of Korra.

According to a report by IGN, the game will be coming out sometime this fall on the PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 consoles. The writer for The Legend of Korra, Tim Hedrick, will be in charge in scripting the story, which takes place between the second and third seasons.

Since players will be controlling Korra, they will be able use the Avatar’s fire, earth, air, and water elements in combat to fight familiar enemies such as mecha tanks and chi blockers (from season one), as well as other benders in the 3-on-3 Bending Arena.

However, it should be noted that the developer isn’t the only powerhouse involved in this game. Activision will be taking care of the publishing side.

It should be noted that it was Activision who had the rights to the game, and they approached Platinum Games to work on the title. Perhaps the reason for this approach is that Activision doesn’t exactly develop games, and their list of developers on call may not have experience with this type of genre.

If you really want to break it down, Activision probably knows music games, shooters, and extreme sports games. That’s it! Platinum Games has proven their mettle with action titles including MADWORLD, Bayonetta, and Vanquish, and they seem to be a perfect match for Korra.


As for gameplay and graphics, Softpedia reported those details. The action will be in real-time just like any many of the titles Platinum Games make. Graphic-wise, the game uses cel-shaded visuals for the characters while the backgrounds use 3D set pieces and painted visuals. The game runs smoothly according to the preview so a high framerate is expected, even up to 60 frames per second.

Right now, that is all the information we know about The Legend of Korra. It was just recently announced so more information is bound to come our way, especially with the game supposedly releasing in within two to four months.
