The Legend of Korra Tabletop Game Kickstarter Coming Soon, Retail Sale to Begin Later This Year
The highly acclaimed animated TV series is coming back into the limelight with its very first tabletop by IDW Games. Designed by Sen-Foong Lim (Akrotiri, The Godfather: A New Don) and Jessey Wright (Pocket Adventure), a Kickstarter campaign for The Legend of Korra tabletop will be coming soon to those who are looking for extra and early access to the board game. The main premise is to emulate the “excitement of the pro-bending sport” that fans were able to watch in the very first season of the animated adventure. There will be two playable teams – Industries Fire Ferrets and The White Falls Wolfbats. Each player must draw cards and build a deck, draft benders, and utilize elemental tokens to push the enemy team out of the fighting ring.
This isn’t the first collaborative effort between IDW and Nickelodeon since they released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past. In regards to their continued partnership, IDW Publishing’s Vice President of Product Development, Jerry Bennington, had this to say:
“We’re thrilled to be working closely with Nickelodeon on The Legend of Korra: Pro-bending Arena. The relationship has truly helped hone the game into an experience that can be enjoyed by all tabletop gamers, but will also be an exciting addition to The Legend of Korra universe that fans love.”
According to the IDW blog, this game won’t be the last, but any future plans will be revealed in due time. The Kickstarter for The Legend of Korra tabletop “Pro-bending Arena” will begin soon, but the official date has not been announced yet. However, the retail sale for each unit will begin later this year in Fall 2017 and is anticipated to sell for $49.99. So, will you be waiting for the Kickstarter to arrive or wait until it reaches a retailer near you?
