Several Avatar: The Last Airbender video games are reportedly being developed in association with Paramount, including a console RPG and an MMO.
At least two new Avatar: The Last Airbender games are reportedly in development, at least according to a recent insider report. Popular from Nickelodeon Avatar: The Last Airbender and its series sequel The Legend of Korra appealed to viewers young and old with their imaginative setting, memorable characters and surprisingly deep plot, and the idea of an expansive video game set in AvatarThe frame has caught the attention of fans for quite some time. Even years later The Legend of Korra aired its last episode in 2014, the Avatar: The Last Airbender the franchise remains extremely popular with anime enthusiasts, and Paramount is currently producing a live-action adaptation of the original Avatar: The Last Airbender in association with Netflix.
Also, Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra have had several tie-in video games over the years, though most of them have received mixed reviews at best. The last console title was a Legend of Korra beaten by Bayonet developer PlatinumGames for the PS4 and Xbox One in 2014, while the Nintendo 3DS received a strategy RPG in the style of fire emblem. Recently, Square Enix’s new mobile games division based in London is reportedly working on a Avatar: The Last Airbender mobile game, a tabletop RPG set in the world of the original series, surpassed its own Kickstarter goal within a day of going live last summer, and several characters like Aang, Toph, and Korra were featured as playable fighters in the Super Smash Bros.-style Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.
Now it seems that fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender could have several big game projects to look forward to, at least according to Avatar News (via Rant game). In addition to the previously mentioned mobile game and an undisclosed fourth title, Paramount’s Avatar Studios is rumored to be working on a console RPG and MMORPG set in the universe of Avatar through a currently anonymous developer. These games are said to have been in development for a while, but they may be released soon. Gameplay details are currently scarce, but one of these two mysteries Avatar: The Last Airbender the games will feature the show’s original cast, albeit revamped with new Asian and Native voice actors. Finally, the RPG can have action-adventure game mechanics.
Even in the many years that have passed since the last Avatar: The Last Airbender video game has been released, gamers with fond memories of the original series and The Legend of Korra paid tribute to them with user-generated content in titles like Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Additionally, a mod for The Elder Scrolls, Skyrim replaces the Dovahkiin with Aang and allows players to slay dragons with the power of the four elements. Still, a triple A, open world Avatar: The Last Airbender game has been requested by fans for quite some time.
It’s not hard to see why either, because the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender is rich in lore and culture, with four different kingdoms for players to explore and interact with. RPGs and MMORPGs are tailor-made for this type of environment, with players able to create their own custom character and choose between one of Avatar: The Last Airbender four classic elements. With live action Avatar: The Last Airbender Netflix series on the horizon, it seems only fitting that Paramount is supposedly working on several game projects based on the legendary franchise.
