- The game, developed by Bamtang Games, offers a mix of action and puzzles and will have both single-player and co-op modes.
- Fans are hopeful that Quest for Balance will break the streak of previous Avatar games and recapture the magic of the beloved animated series.
Updated pages on various online shops may have just revealed the release date of the next Avatar: The Last Airbender game. Now isn’t necessarily a good time to be a fan of the 2000s Nickelodeon cartoon. While the original series is still a classic, many are already critical of the Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action show currently in the works at Netflix. On the other hand, there may be some hope on the horizon for those that want more of Aang and his friends.
Earlier this year, the creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender teased upcoming projects related to the series. Further, last month a new game, based on the original series, was revealed to be in the works with developer Bamtang Games. Titled Avatar: The Last Airbender: Quest for Balance, the game looks to be a mix of action and puzzles and will feature both single-player and co-op modes. At the time of its reveal, there was no set release date, leaving gamers guessing. This seems to have changed, however.
Recently, the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Store, and Microsoft Store all updated their pages for the upcoming Avatar: The Last Airbender game to include a release date of September 22, 2023. The change was originally noted and reported by gaming journalists regarding Nintendo’s storefront, but it has since been confirmed that Microsoft and Sony have also listed the same launch date. While neither Bamtang nor publisher GameMill Entertainment have issued any official statement at this time, the fact that all three companies are suddenly applying the same release date to Quest for Balance would seem to indicate that this information is reliable.
The news of the upcoming title launching so soon should be a welcome development for gamers and, especially, for those hoping to recapture the old magic of the series. Some have argued that Quest for Balance should become a stepping stone for a new game franchise. Now, fans won’t have to wait long to find out if these hopes come to fruition. Past games based on Avatar: The Last Airbender haven’t always been great, but this new one looks like it could potentially break that streak and remind everyone why the show was such a hit.
Not everything is positive in the Avatar fandom at the moment. Between concerns about the live-action show and reports that the upcoming Avatar: The Last Airbender is replacing some original voice actors, there’s plenty of reason for pessimism. Still, with Quest for Balance on the horizon and looking solid, fans have a reason to look forward to September.
Avatar The Last Airbender: Quest for Balance is rumored to release on September 22, 2023, on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
