With Platinum Game’s release date for ‘The Legend of Korra’ game coming out in a little over a month and a half, more details about the rumored 'Pro-bending mechanics' have been released recently.

In 'The Legend of Korra' television show by Nickelodeon, there is a sport called 'Pro-bending.' The game consists of two teams, with a total of three benders per team: one water, one fire, and one earth bender. The point is for the two teams to square off in an arena and push the opposing team and gain 'territory,' thus, moving the advancing team to the opponent's side of the arena. Once all of the team members have been knocked out or pushed off, the game ends. If it’s a total knock out, the team wins. If not, the player will play up to three rounds.

Robert Conkey, a video game producer at Activision, shared some footage of the controls and mechanics of the game. The Pro-Bending mode will only be available once the player completes the game for the first time. Players will play as Korra, working alongside her teammates Mako and Bolin.

By working together, the Fire Ferrets can coordinate their moves based on the precision that the players make. It’s all about team work!

Try it out for yourself after you've beaten the game, coming out October 21st!
