The Legend of Korra is poised to continue as a series of tabetop games from IDW in partnership with Nickelodeon. The first game planned for release is The Legend of Korra: Pro-bending Arena.
Designed by Sen-Foong Lim (Akrotiri, The Godfather: A New Don) and Jessey Wright (Pocket Adventure), The Legend of Korra: Pro-bending Arena aims to capture the excitement of the pro-bending sport found in season one of the show. Focusing on the rivalry between the Future Industries Fire Ferrets and The White Falls Wolfbats, The Legend of Korra: Pro-bending Arena has two players each take control of a team, draft card decks for their benders, and then play cards to place elemental tokens around the board in an effort to overwhelm their opponent. As in the show, pro-bending matches are a game of push and pull, with the objective to be the team that has either advanced the farthest forward, or completely knock their competitors out of the ring.
IDW hasn’t revealed details about future games in this series, but I suppose that will depend on how well the Kickstarter for The Legend of Korra: Pro-bending Arena goes when it launches later this summer. The game is expected to sell for $49.99 with a ship date slated for sometime in the fall. Keep tabs on the IDW Games Facebook page for launch dates as they become available.
