We’re not talking about James Cameron’s Avatar (the second movie tie-in game has long been announced by Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment, and we’re almost sure to see it at Ubisoft Forward in September), but the Nickelodeon animated series!
It’s pretty misleading that there is Avatar, as well as Avatar – The Last Airbender, which got a movie adaptation in 2010, called The Last Airbender. The most recent game in the franchise was released in 2014. Still, it was one of Activision’s cheaper games, The Legend of Korra, which was one of PlatinumGames’ titles during its challenging periods in the mid-2010s (because at the time, the studio was putting together several licensed games, and we’re now waiting for Bayonetta 3 from them).
Avatar: The Last Airbender: Quest for Balance for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 has just popped up on Amazon in Japan, but we can be sure that it will also be released for Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series and Xbox One on November 8 (yes, the release date is also listed!), as licensed games like this are not usually exclusive to a console family (except for Marvel comic book heroes…). GameMill Entertainment is developing the game. They are known for Nickeloden All-Star Brawl and Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues.
The game hasn’t even been announced yet, and that’s the biggest joke: we’re less than three months away from its supposed release, but a listing for the project has already popped up on Amazon. The project may have surfaced in February when Avatar News reported that a new console RPG in the Aang era was in the works, and it would be released sooner than expected. And this line of thinking coincides with the release of Avatar: The Last Airbender: Quest for Balance…
Meanwhile, it’s official that the turn-based RPG Avatar: Generations is being developed for mobile by Square Enix London Mobile and Navigator Games, and will be soft-launched in several regions during August.
