Activision has released a trailer for a downloadable game they have planned for this summer based off of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. Now some might be wondering which continuity the game is based off of, especially with what seems to be a lot of love from the media world focusing on the series lately. Luckily it looks to be based off of the currently running Nickelodeon series instead of the known Micheal Bay film (evident by the nickelodeon logo at the end of the trailer, and the fact that they’re actually mutants, not aliens, and Megan Fox is thankfully no where to be seen), however the graphics are much more realistic than cartoonish, so I’m really only venturing a guess there. It is possible that the only reason the nickelodeon logo is there is because nick currently holds the rights to TMNT. The game seems to be a sort of 3D action game ala Batman’s Arkham series, though likely with much less content considering it appears to be download only, and also is apparently the first of a three game deal with Activision. The game will be released on PSN, XBLA and PC this summer and feature online 4 player co-op.
Entertainment Weekly has learned that Nickelodeon has put in an order for another 26 episodes of The Legend of Korra. After receiving 3.8 million viewers for Season One Book One, the show is set to return in 2013 to finish off the first order of 26 episodes with Book Two, meaning that this new order of episodes implies a Book Three and Four. Nothing is reported about what these next three books will entail plot wise, except that they will have to deal with Korra’s trials after becoming a fully powered Avatar.
Let me state it right out, I absolutely love Avatar: The Last Airbender (not to be confused with the shitty Shamalamadingdong movie by a similar title). It stands as one of my favorite cartoon series out there, and the fact that they continued with a sequel series just made me the happiest person on earth, cartoon watcher wise. The question lingers though, now that the season is over with, did The Legend of Korra stack up to it’s predecessor’s first season? When it comes to this question, I’m going to stack it up in a number of categories. Oh, and Spoilers ahead
