@bulimicbalzac: Are you ok? Your picture of sexy video game men with condoms in there mouth is just as the game about planes with panties (which by the way is a decent SRPG).

I hope the multiplayer is just all pro bending, that'd be cool.

@larrydavis: You get into murky water trying to toss the labels around though. I mean, Korra's animation has been handled by a Korean studio that worked on the first series and a Japanese studio. Namely Studio Pierrot, who animated Yu Yu Hakusho, Flame of Recca, Saiyuki, Naruto, Bleach, etc...

So much MEH to me, but from the looks of it plenty of fans of the show will buy it and then maybePlatinumGamescan make something awesome.

Every time I read GAF, I wonder if they live in some kind of fantasy world where video games and TV shows are some kind of analogy for genocide, considering the amount of rage they feel over it. The dictators of the world manipulating the game industry as some kind of proxy war.

@mathewmcgee: Korra is a sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender, and alot of its concepts are introduced in that show. It might still be on Netflix, otherwise you can find it on DVD. Either way, Avatar is widely considered one of the best animated adventure shows ever made, and it has a strong following for a reason. You should definitely watch it before anything. Otherwise, the impact of alot of stuff in Korra might not really hit home. First season is pretty simplistic and has alot of stand-alone episodes, but it's fun and deals with some surprisingly mature themes, especially for something aimed at kids. The second season, specifically once Toph gets introduced, is when the show really becomes amazing. My brother got me hooked onto it, and just about everyone else I've showed it too became obsessed.

Korra is definitely aged up a bit, but is hit or miss at times. Atleast when compared to Avatar. Season 1 was pretty strong for the most part, season 2 was pretty rocky, but season 3 has been off to great start. But still, if nothing else, the fight choreography is pretty fantastic, and the animation is generally quite excellent. As for how to watch it, you can probably purchase episodes off of PSN/XBLA/itunes etc. Otherwise, the first two seasons are available on blu-ray.

@alyssia: there's quite a few great shows out there thanks to nickelodeon so that's kind of a dismissive attitude to have. ren & stimpy, rocko's modern life, invader zim, A:TLA and korra, to name a few. i mean, unless you have watched and hated each and every one of them, then fair enough.

I just almost had a heart attack just reading the title of this video! Legend of Korra is probably the best animated show running on TV right now, and just one of the best shows in general!

@shaanyboi: That video you posted makes me want to watch this show! I'm 26 now and I used to be pretty into anime in my teens, until a few years ago, and of course western cartoons as a kid (Batman: The Animated Series, X-Men, TMNT, Jackie Chan Adventures lol, etc etc.) Netflix seems to have a lot of old classics that I used to love, and lots of things I missed. This Legend of Korra show looks great! What is the best way to watch it? I don't have cable.

Also: I hope that game turns out great. For all the LoK fans and Platinum games fans alike.

Do I have to know what "Legend of Korra" is? I can only find the 2014 game on GB

Edit: Oh it's some cartoon show. I thought this was some game franchise I've never heard about.

@landon: If you say so. I know a lot of people really like it, but everything I've seen was embarrassing. Especially the super low-rent animation that seemed to be about 2 frames per second. But I think that was early in Avatar's run so maybe it got better? I'm not going to waste time to find out. I'm busy watching Trailer Park Boys on Netflix, a show that I do not fully understand, but is strangely compelling.

I wouldn't care about this game but Platinum is making it so it'll probably at least play well.

@sravankb: i never backlashed on korra even when it meandered a bit in book 2. i personally think the amon arc was a fiting way to progress the series: more adult and complex themes and a bit of a darker slant, plus it was a meanigful plot that didn't have to hinge on the fate of the world. just wish they didn't feel the need to go balls-out grandiose with book 2 (though it was still pretty great and the 1st avatar eps were totally worth it).

e: here's hoping beifong delivers some kickass earth bending in book 3.

Avatar image for itssexytime
Posted By ITSSEXYTIME

It's totally bananas to me that this is happening, but totally awesome.

The big question is that bending suffers from the Green Lantern problem in a way. You have these amazingly versatile powers, but how do you properly translate them to a videogame without them feeling incredibly limited?

Considering all Korra really does is punch-bend people, I don't think it will be an issue. The versatility and complexity of bending severely dropped off in the new series.

An Avatar game from the makers of Bayonetta? This could be alright. But the trailer not showing anything and this being a downloadable title for a cartoon series has me skeptical.

How's the show after the Amon arc?

Book 2 had some moments, but alot of the characters make some REALLY dumb decisions that make no sense. The new character Varric was entertaining, the side story with Tenzin's family is pretty great, and when they get into the origins of the first Avatar, it's REALLY fascinating while leading to a kinda neat finale. But overall, it wasn't a good season.

Book 3 has started really well though.

I'm not the biggest Korra fan, but kinda interested in how this turns out. Bending seems a good fit for an action game.

Side note: did season 2 end up being ok? I heard some rough stuff about the earlier episodes and never got around to watching, but now that season three is nigh I'm wondering if it's worth going back to get ready or if I should just skip it.

The first half of the season was animated by a different studio. I stopped watching after the second episode because how bad it was, but I've heard it got better. I'm hoping the early episodes were redone for the Blu-ray release coming July 1st, if not I guess I'll just have to power through it.

The first few episodes were indeed done by a different studio for reasons, but the original studio (Studio Mir) did the second half of that season and are committed to animating the show until it ends. It's amazing what difference the subtle facial expressions and body language makes. Also, they're not redoing those episodes. That would be crazy expensive for just a Blu-ray release.

Activision must retain the video game license for LoK and that's why they've partnered with Platinum who might be big fans of the show. On a side note to the show itself my one criticism is the seasons are too self contained and aren't like TLA in that it had an overarching story with a beginning (book 1), middle (book 2) and an end (book 3).

Awesome to see Platinum Games doing an Avatar game. I'm interested to see how exactly they translate the show's elemental combat and mobility into a game.

Hopefully Activision gave Platinum a fair amount of time to create a good game, and not another poorly made movie/tv show game, or a tease of what a good Avatar game could be.

lol, I surprised myself when a friend convinced me to watch the Avatar cartoon on Nicklodeon. I ended up liking it (hated the first few episodes though).

That said, this was a really lolworthy trailer.
