Video: The Legend of Korra PS4: PlatinumGames Joins the Avatar

4w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a video today announcing that PlatinumGames joins the Avatar in The Legend of Korra on PS4 below.

To quote: It's no easy task to adapt the critically acclaimed animated series The Legend of Korra into a third-person action game. The beloved show fuses martial arts, varying philosophies and world cultures, and an exquisite story that follows in the footsteps of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

What better studio to take up the challenge than PlatinumGames (Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance)? The team has spent years meticulously crafting combat systems that marry style and substance into a visual maelstrom of fast, addictive action.

And with Platinum's knowledge of martial arts choreography, Korra couldn't be in better hands. Revealed just yesterday, The Legend of Korra is coming to PS4 and PS3 this year. And we got to play it.

I figured it would seem a bit of a rip off to just pay for new small pictures, thus I think that they will incorporate the entire card instead of just a small picture.

This would be a great way to market upcoming games and further integrate the IP's into the user base.

I left in the current gray boring design in as a direct comparison. Bear in mind these were just made for fun."

261w ago - A leaked video appeared to indicate that Golf is coming to Microsoft's XBox 360 console with avatars.

Everything looks fairly early in development with limited sound and very simple textures.

The gameplay seems to be similar to Hot Shots Golf, with no hint of Natal interaction or Tiger Woods flicking.

To quote: Being that Nintendo's Wii Sports is the most successful videogame of all time, it would not be surprising at all the soo Microsoft try to come into the same field with a "Xbox 360 Sports".

This could be the start of many Avatar Sports titles to come and more than likely for Project Natal.
