Nickelodeon Lets You Stroll Through The Legend of Korra
The Legend of Korra – A Tour of Republic City
Nickelodeon has created what could be considered the coolest online experience in order to stir up excitement for the already highly anticipated series The Legend of Korra. As a sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, set 70 years in the future, a lot has changed and so Nickelodeon built an online tour of Korra’s new setting, Republic City. It’s a spanning metropolis designed to cleverly blend aspects of 1920s Chicago with Chinese culture. Being able to take a closer look at this amazing location will allow fans to learn more about the history of the city outside of the series.
The walkthrough of Republic City can be found on Nick.com, and it starts off with a introduction narrated by Tensen, Aang’s (from Avatar) youngest son. We learn Aang founded Republic City after the war, and a giant statue on Aang Memorial Island, which just so happens to be the first place you visit on the walkthrough, immortalizes his image. How the game (is it even a game? Not really) works is you click on various things on the screen and you have the option to read detailed descriptions of characters (such as Korra) or other things. Right now, only three areas are available for viewing, with more unlockable areas to come once the series premieres.
The site is very cool and shows off the series in a captivating way (the set up strongly reminds me of Pottermore). This should tide us over until The Legend of Korra premieres on April 14th, but if you’re too impatient to wait a couple of days you can watch the first two episodes on the Nickelodeon website. Personally though, I think you should wait and watch the episodes the day they air. If you watch them too quickly, you’ll have to wait even longer for a new episode. Just take a breath and hold on, Korra will be with us soon.
