The Legend of Korra Takes to PS3 and PS4 in October
In an interview with IGN, Activision producer Robert Conkey has revealed that Platinum Games’ The Legend of Korra video game is set to be released on October 21 on PlayStation Network for PS3 and PS4. In addition to the release date reveal, Robert unveiled a new post-game mode based on the Pro-Bending sport featured in Nickelodeon’s animated series. Players fight 3-on-3 in a territorial battle using the Water, Fire and Earth elements.
The IGN video above goes through a demonstration of Pro-Bending in the game. As the video progresses from an interview with Activision to the show’s creators, there are spoilers for the most recent season.
The story, which takes place between seasons 2 and 3, will be written by Tim Hedrick. In the game you’ll control Korra and all of her elemental abilities in combat against many of the enemies you’d recognize from the show. According to a Comic-Con interview with IGN, the game should last anywhere between 4-6 hours. It will also feature Platinum’s signature action flair alongside some mini-games like an endless runner where you play as Korra’s polar bear dog Naga. Cutscenes for the game are animated by Titmouse, the studio behind shows like Motorcity and Adult Swim’s Black Dynamite.
