Famed developer Platinum Games is bringing Nickelodeon TV show Legend of Korra to home consoles, with Activision handling the publishing duties.
Responsible for titles such as Bayonetta, Vanquish and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Platinum is producing the game for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It will be a downloadable game as opposed to a physical retail release.
Korra writer Tim Hedrick is on board to provide the story, which occurs between second and third seasons of the show. Legend of Korra is a spin-off of the popular Avatar: The Last Airbender series.
Here's some more detail, taken from the official press release:
The Legend of Korra is a single player, action-packed brawler, in which Korra's mastery of martial arts and the four elements – fire, earth, air and water – can be used on the fly to bolster her combos and counters against foes. Throughout the game, Korra's polar bear-dog, Naga, will aid her in high-speed traversal segments. The game also brings to life the series' competitive sport, Pro-Bending, in which teams of three use the elements to fight for territory in an arena.
