Platinum Games and Activision have announced a downloadable game based on The Legend of Korra, to be released on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3 later this year (via IGN).
Platinum games is best known for developing stylish, hyperkinetic action games like MadWorld, Vanquish, Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance and Bayonetta, which seems like a good fit for translating the martial arts and bending of Korra's combat into a game.
The game is being written by Legend of Korra writer Tim Hendrick, and will take place during the few weeks between the end of Book Two: Spirits and Book Three: Change.
Players will assume control of Korra to master the elements of water, earth, fire and air, while battling Mecha Tanks and Chi Blockers, and participating in Pro-Bending.
There will also be a Nintendo 3DS, turn-based strategy version of the game, developed by Webfoot Technologies. The game will take a tactical approach to combat, in contrast to the console/PC version's fast-paced action.
The announcement trailer also invites fans to vote for the game's "cover art."
The Legend of Korra Book Three: Change premieres June 27.
