Avatar: The Last Airbender is an Anime-style American cartoon series. The American animated series, which debuted on Nickelodeon on February 21, 2005, tells the tale of Aang and his friends, who must stop the deadly battle with the Fire Nation and defeat Fire Lord Ozai in order to secure the world.
While the series ended in 2008, it continued in the form of comics. There have been quite a few games in the series too with the latest being 2014’s Legend of Korra. However, we haven’t had an impactful game in the series yet. Earlier this year reports of a new game called Avatar: The Last Airbender – Quest for Balance started circulating thanks to a listing on Amazon Japan (via VGC). Though not much was found out, we have some more information on the title.
Avatar: The Last Airbender – Quest for Balance Listings have Surfaced
We obviously don’t have anything solid on the game so far. But a Canadian site has started taking pre-orders of the game. The pre-orders are up for Nintendo Switch, Xbox, PlayStation4, and 5 confirming the platforms so far.
The website hasn’t displayed any cover art and states ‘Images coming soon’. But it indeed shows a release date the same as the previous Amazon JP listing which is November 8. It is very curious because it puts the game just a month and a half away and we have practically no official confirmation of it.
What we know so Far
Though there is hardly any information Avatar News has stated a few key points of the game. Avatar News has claimed that they were indeed shown gameplay footage and screenshots from the game. They were also given a rundown of the story. Also, the game will be developed by Avatar Studios and Game Mill.
The game looks to be inspired by Zelda: Breath of the Wild from its art style but is different as it’s not an open world like the former. The concept behind the game looks really interesting as stated by Avatar News. It’s sort of a ‘What If?’ but for Avatar. The game picks up after the events of the series that concluded in 2008.
Members of the Order of White Lotus narrate stories of the End of the 100 Years War by covering the three books; Water, Earth, and Fire. The source claims that they’ve only seen Aang as a playable character so far but there could be others too based on different stories.
Again, none of this is solid as there has been no official announcement from Avatar Studios or Game Mill. The New York Comic Con is set to take place on October 6, maybe then we can expect an announcement. It should be noted that the release could be subject to change as keeping something this huge without building any hype is really intriguing.
