Platinum Games' The Legend of Korra Is Looking Lovely on PS4

Posted by Sammy Barker

Korra, blimey

Activision’s licensed titles can be very hit or miss. For every Transformers: Fall of Cybertron or GoldenEye 007: Remastered, there’s a Fast & Furious: Showdown or The Amazing Spider-Man 2. There was some concern, then, when the mega publisher announced that it would be wielding the elemental abilities of The Legend of Korra – but with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance developer Platinum Games at the helm, this is actually shaping up great.

As a cross-platform title, the visuals in this PlayStation 4 demo premiered on IGN aren’t quite as breathtaking as you may hope, but the gameplay looks rock solid. Unsurprisingly, you’ll be tossing wind, fire, earth, and water at your foes, and formulating all sorts of flashy combos on the fly. Best of all, though, you'll get to ride the protagonist’s polar bear dog Naga in some speedy on-rails sequences. Just to recap: polar bear dog.

Absolutely adore LOK and from what I've seen this is shaping up to be both honourable to the series and a great game. I'm liking the combat and art style especially. Should be a good release.

Im just glad that in these days of never ending sequels and mega budget ' sell a bazillion copies or the game is a flop', developers like p* are still going. Never heard of legend of korra but will be getting this day 1 as it's by p*.

This game looks absolutely fantastic. It's Platinum, expect nothing less.

Been getting a healthy dose of Platinum lately, what with Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 1 and 2 dropping this October, Legend of Korra on the way and even Scalebound on the horizon.

Finally, Kamiya is getting the respect he deserves. Love his games so much!
