Get ready to fend off multiple Chi-Blockers with super Avatar strength! Not one, but two video games were announced for The Legend of Korra – and you can chose the cover art.
Two video games based on Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra will soon be coming to little screens near you, IGN announced today. The first of the two games announced is simply titled The Legend of Korra, and is being developed by Platinum Games. The third-person action adventure game is set to be released this Fall.
The teaser trailer for the Legend of Korra video game shows off the cartoon’s beautiful gameplay. The story will be set between the show’s second and third seasons, and is written by The Legend of Korra writer Tim Hedrick.

The second game on the docket will be developed by Webfoot Technologies. Though many details are still unknown about this game, it is reportedly a turn-based RPG, made exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. IGN is quoted as saying that the game will “focus on tactically maneuvering Korra and her allies on the battlefield.”
There is some precedent for video games set in the Avatar-verse. Avatar: The Last Airbender – based on the cartoon of the same name – and its sequel, Avatar: The Burning Earth, were released in 2007. Both games were published by THQ, and were available on multiple gaming platforms. In addition, a video game based on M. Night Shyamalan’s failed live-action adaptation of the cartoon was released in 2010.
Meanwhile, the first three episodes of The Legend of Korra season 3 will premiere this Friday at 7:00 p.m. on Nickelodeon.
