Nickelodeon and Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), combined forces to launch The Legend of Korra a single-player, third-person action video game based on Nickelodeon’s fan-favorite, animated series. Developed by gaming industry leader, PlatinumGames Inc., this original title is out today worldwide as a digital release on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems and Windows PC, and arrives tomorrow on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft.

“All of the hardcore gamers on the Korra crew jumped when they heard Activision had lined up PlatinumGames to develop the video game, and Mike and I are incredibly pleased with how it faithfully and affectionately captures the look and spirit of the Avatar-verse and its characters,” said Bryan Konietzko, Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra co-creator/executive producer. “On top of that achievement, it’s a ton of fun to play and we can’t wait for the fans to experience Korra in a whole new way.”

With a link as inextricable as one the Final Fantasy series shares with its soundtracks, it’s no large wonder that the series ended up with a rhythm game spinoff in the form of 2012’s Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. After its critical and financial success, we were finally gifted to a sequel in the newly released Theathrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call. And although Square-Enix could have easily gotten away with making Curtain Call nothing more than a glorified expansion pack — after all, the original Theatrhythm shipped with about 70 songs on the cartridge, while its sequel boasts over 200, sans DLC — some rather significant changes were made to ensure that it improves on some of the original game’s flaws.
