The Legend Of Korra.

Platinum Games my best be known for creating original works like Bayonetta or Vanquish but the Osaka based developer appears to be branching out as they have just announced their first license based effort in the form of The Legend Of Korra.
Based on the hit Nickelodeon series of the same name and sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, Platinum’s Legend Of Korra will be a fast paced, third-person beat ’em up affair set between seasons two and three of the show released for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in late-2014 in download form only.

  1. It doesn’t matter what company is making the game it doesn’t seem like it will be any good. The fact its a download only game is already a bad sign and there are rarely any unique Third Person Beat ’em up games either.
    Combine this with the fact that the other Avatar games are notorious for being shit or just plain normal and the fact that Legend of Korra supposedly isn’t even as popular as the original show then it really doesn’t have alot going for it.

    1. I don’t know much about either Avatar or The Legend of Korra and I’ll also concede that nine out of ten digital only releases struggle to match up to their boxed counterparts however, I still have full confidence that given the time and resources Platinum Games can pull of something at least respectable here if not fan pleasing. Platinum really are just that good.

  2. I haven’t watched the cartoon, but hopefully the game will be good. Just because it is a download game doesn’t mean it will be bad. My favourite beat-em-ups in recent times have been downloadable titles (Scott Pilgrim and Double Dragon Neon.)

    1. I don’t think the, download only status of The Legend Of Korra will have any real baring on the games quality however, I do think the fact that Activision are unwilling to release a licence game boxed suggests they don’t think it’ll sell all that well. Whether that’s down to said game’s quality (with Platinum’s involvement I find that hard to believe) or The Legend Of Korra’s popularity I can’t say but something must be holding Activision back.
