A third-person action affair, The Legend of Korra is due on PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in northern autumn.

Not much is known about the project so far, but IGN reports players will face Mecha Tanks and Chi Blockers, as well as other Benders in a 3v3 mode. All four elements will be available to the player.

Based on the Nickelodeon’s TV series Avatar: The Legend of Korra – a followup to Avatar: The Last Airbender starring the eponymous water bender – The Legend of Korra comes courtesy of Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance developer Platinum Games, by way of publisher Activision. Tim Hendrick, who wrote the TV show, penned the story, which takes place between the second and third seasons.

Check out the first teaser trailer below, with thanks to IGN. A tactical 3DS game based on Korra is also on the way, courtesy of Webfoot Technologies.

Thanks, GameInformer.

    The world is perfect for an MMORPG, I wish they made a big budget standalone experience not hindered by having to be about Korra and her pals.

    @dazedonthemoon Exactly what I thought the first time I watched Avatar : TLA, but the MMO market is pretty risky at the moment.

    No fucking way. No way. Seriously, no way.
    This is a dream. This is not real. The best action maker is not working on a game for best animated show. Too awesome!!!

    Now I wish Last Airbender (The sublime show and not the subshite Hollywood crapfest) had a decent game instead of a stupid achievement dump.

    I salivate at the thought of choosing which elemental nation you belong to and mixing martial arts stylings with cool elemental powers in RPG fashion…. Oooooh it just seems to easy to be awesome…. Why isn’t someone making this happen?! Doesn’t have to be an MMO but just an action RPG with multiplayer aspects.

    Damnit I need to change my pants, sorry guys.

    Excited about both of the games, to be honest. Love me some turn-based RPGs and Korra + Platinum can only be awesome.

    The only thing I’m worried about is that they have to make it about Korra and her story, though if they make you be an original character that joins her group that would be best IMO. And polar bear dogs, let me ride as many awesome hybrid animals as possible.
