THQ sending Wii and DS players into The Last Airbender's 'world of bending'


Avatar: The Last Airbender's move from Nickelodeon cartoon to live-action movie isn't enough to shake off THQ, publisher of games based on the franchise. The company has announced Wii and DS games based on M. Night Shyamalan's improbable film adaptation of the basic cable cartoon series, which focuses on a kid who uses wind-controlling powers (and an arrow on his head) against the Fire Nation.

The games will, of course, allow players to control the title character in segments. However, the story will be told "from the unique perspective of the antagonist Zuko, exiled prince of the Fire Nation, who embarks on a personal quest to capture the Avatar, a young boy named Aang, in order to regain his father's honor." A twist worthy of Shyamalan himself! Or not.

The Last Airbender "immerses players in the world of bending" (no, really, that's what the press release says) in June.
