When publisher Activision acquired the license to make a video game based on the Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, it had to find a studio to make the game. The company had a long list to choose from. They chose Platinum Games, the developer best known for action titles Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, and Vanquish.
Activision producer Robert Conkey revealed why:
“Often when you look at Platinum’s games, the action is very smooth, very flashy and very cool. Basically any time they’ve done action, there’s a specific Platinum style, which people are really appreciative of. That’s what we were hoping to bring to the table.”
In addition to the main storyline, The Legend of Korra also has mini-games like an in-game sport where Korra tries to gain territory over her enemies, and an endless runner-type game where she rides a polar bear-dog hybrid through narrow streets.
The Legend of Korra game will be available for download this fall on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
