A new set of videos give us a peek into the development of the upcoming video game adaption of The Legend of Korra.

The Legend of Korra has been a popular animated series, which is a sequel to the popular series Avatar: The Last Airbender that premiered on Nickelodeon.

The Legend of Korra video game is being developed by Platinum Games, while Activision will be the publisher.

The videos showcase the amount of work that goes in from the animation studio Titmouse, which is seen working on the cutscenes. Titmouse is well known from its previous works like Black Dynamite, The Venture Bros. and others. It was also responsible for the title sequence for the original Avatar: The Last Airbender.

The game will be a single-player, action-packed brawler that allows players to control Avatar Korra, who has mastered the martial arts, and all the four elements fire, earth, air and water. These four elements can now be used by players appropriately to fight her rivals who are trying to create an imbalance into the world by their actions.

The game will allow the player to swift between the four elements on the go. Each element will have its own combat style and special moves. Players can combine two elements to bring out combo moves. Apart from the main game, there will be many minigames like endless runner with Korra's dog, Naga and the pro-bending matches in the Republic City.

The pro-bending matches will have rules that were depicted in the animated series. Players will be able to control the team of 'Fire Ferrets', which is made up of Korra, Mako and Bolin.

The Legend of Korra video game is expected to be released on PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on 21 October and for Xbox 360 and Xbox One on 22 October.

Apart from the console edition, there will also be a Nintendo 3DS edition that is being developed by Webfoot Technologies. The 3DS edition will feature a similar story, single player and will be a turn-based strategy RPG.
