THQ today released “Avatar: The Last Airbender — Into the Inferno,” based on the animated Nickelodeon TV show. The game is now available for the PlayStation 2 ($19.99) and Nintendo Wii ($29.99). A Nintendo DS release is scheduled for November 24, 2008.
The game follows the storyline of the third season of the series where players participate in the climactic conclusion to the 100-year-old war. Players will be able to play as their favorite characters from the show and perform similar martial arts moves, as well as bend all four elements — Earth, Fire, Water and Air. The game will also feature air battles as players soar through the sky on gliders in new flying levels.
The Nintendo DS version of the game will introduce a new “bobble head” style of animation previously seen in Nickelodeon’s special Avatar series of animated shorts.
