According to reports, Square Enix is developing two mobile games based on the Avatar brands: The Last Airbender and Tomb Raider. The Tomb Raider action-adventure platformer series debuted in 1996 and the last installment was released in 2018. While Avatar: The Last Airbender has yet to receive a significant video game adaptation. , characters from the popular series appear as playable fighters in The Nickelodeon Star Brawl.
With its family tone, interesting world, and powerful elemental mastery, Nickelodeon’s Avatar franchise: The Last Airbender has captured the hearts of many fans. Despite this fascinating combination of traits, the series has yet to be adapted into a great video game.
The protagonists, Aang, Toph and Korra, have just been included in the crossover battle game Nicktoons Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. The game features a variety of popular animated characters, ranging from Spongebob Squarepants to CatDog, with each character’s moveset paying homage to the series they appear in.
Along with this first fighting game, a tabletop RPG based on Avatar: The Last Airbender was recently funded on Kickstarter. Players will be able to immerse themselves in the rich universe of Avatar, which includes five different eras and an in-depth character development system.
According to IGN, Square Enix is working on two new mobile games that will bring the Tomb Raider and Avatar: The Last Airbender properties to phones around the world. Square Enix London Mobile, a brand new studio specializing in mobile games, is working on both games.
Square Enix London Mobile and Navigator Games, the creators of the turn-based role-playing game Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, are also working together on the Avatar project. This may imply that the Avatar game will also be a turn-based role-playing game. Meanwhile, the Tomb Raider game, Tomb Raider Reloaded, is an action arcade game that was first revealed in 2020 and is slated to arrive in 2022.
The Tomb Raider franchise turns 25 this year. Starting with its initial trilogy and continuing into several sequels, the action-adventure franchise has seen protagonist Lara Croft fight and fight her way through a variety of archaeological expeditions.
The 2013 reboot, simply dubbed Tomb Raider, attempted to revitalize the series by adding more complexity to Croft’s character and improving gameplay by giving players more options. The success of the game spawned two sequels, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which create a modern trilogy. Crystal Dynamics recently released a video of Tomb Raider Ascension, a suspended sequel with disturbing monsters and a survival horror tone, in honor of the franchise’s 25th anniversary.
Square Enix London Mobile will soon bring two exciting franchises to the mobile gaming market, with two mobile versions underway. The game Avatar: The Last Airbender, which will most likely be a turn-based role-playing game, will introduce the beloved Nickelodeon franchise to the video game world. Meanwhile, Tomb Raider Reloaded will be the iconic franchise’s first new game since 2018. Both of these forward-looking initiatives should be followed by fans of both series, as well as fans of mobile games in general.
