Korra’s second game is a 3DS strategy title made in the US
Platinum is not the only developer working on a Legend Of Korra title for Activision. 3DS will get a very different game courtesy of Webfoot Technologies, an Illinois company more used to creating licensed fare. Webfoot’s version of Korra, subtitled A New Era Begins, is a strategy RPG that implements Korra’s elemental Avatar powers as she and her companions traverse the terrain in a rather more thoughtful manner. Details are still slight, but the 3DS game is set in the same period as the console version, and could make an intriguing companion to what is being considered the ‘main’ game by Platinum.
Korra has an array of abilities related to ‘bending’ the elements, giving her powerful attacks. As such, the game features ranged as well as close combat. But she’ll be stripped of her powers at first, and have to regain them
A section in which Korra rides her polar bear dog (centre left) looks to offer variety, as will a pro bending mode (left). Combat (above), meanwhile, puts emphasis on charged attacks, but you’ll have to watch out for chi blockers and triads of fellow benders (centre right)
