The Legend of Korra: Game Release Date and New Mode, Plus What to Expect in Book 4 - IGN

Four cool videos over at IGN:

1) Interview with Robert Conkey, the producer from Activision on the upcoming Korra video game, which is to be released on October 21st!

2) A bunch of gameplay footage of the Pro-bending mode in the game, with Rob explaining everything in voice over. Dude… I can’t tell you how cool it is to see this sport we created in all of its chaos and fury––without us having to draw it. They even have the tiebreaker face-offs!

3) Interview with Mike and me about the ending of Book 3, the video game, and some tiny tidbits about where Book 4 is headed (TINY ones). I was really sleepy.

4) David Faustino (Mako) and Janet Varney (Korra) talk about love.

Thanks to the fantastic folks at IGN for having us!

Here are the intro slides I made for our SDCC Korra panelists. I had a very narrow slice of time in which to make them, but had a ton of fun in doing so.

It was great to see Chifuyu Sasaki and Naoko Kawano, the comic-making powerhouse team known as Gurihiru, and the brilliant Jessie Flower (voice of Toph, as Mike noted, and also the recent voice of young Suyin Beifong)––whom I didn’t recognize because the last time I saw her she was A LITTLE GIRL AND NOT A UNIVERSITY STUDENT! Thanks to Dark Horse for hosting our signing (which also included the great Gene Yang). We had a blast.

Nice write up by Scott Thill — he asked us some of the best questions we’ve ever been asked by an interviewer. Check out the link for the interview.

Indeed, this was a really fun and stimulating interview. I encourage you to check it out!

Mike and I and our stretchy heads met some really cool fans of ATLA/LOK tonight at the second Echo Society concert featuring incredible (separate) compositions by Jeremy Zuckerman and Benjamin Wynn, the composer and the sound designer for ATLA/LOK, respectively. Enriching conversation ensued!

Major milestone for us today as we mixed the final episode of Book 2. FINALLY! You guys will see this in under two weeks, hot off the presses. This episode, and the remaining ones leading up to it, are sonic smorgasbords, thanks to Jeremy Zuckerman (music), Ben Wynn (sound design), Aran Tanchum (foley), and everyone working with them. Mike and I would especially like to thank our outstanding mixer, Adrian Ordonez (pictured above), at Levels Audio. OK, back to work on Books 3 & 4…

Michael DiMartino (co-creator), Joaquim Dos Santos (co-executive producer), Ki-Hyun Ryu (supervising producer), and I are going to be at the Barnes & Noble in the Grove L.A. on Thursday, August 15 at 7:00 PM (one week from tomorrow) to do a (short) talk and a (longer) signing of our Dark Horse "The Legend of Korra: Art of the Animated Series" book. This is a great opportunity for anyone in the L.A. area who couldn’t make it down to San Diego Comic-Con. It will be nice and casual, and we’ll sign books until they kick us out! Hope to see you there! If there is enough time Ryu will do a mean drawing of you!

One last photo to wrap up my SDCC 2013 experience, with Mike DiMartino (left) and Jeremy Zuckerman (right). A moment of brotherly satisfaction backstage in the Nick booth after the signing for Jeremy’s first Korra soundtrack release.

Michael Dante DiMartino (The Legend of Korra co-creator, executive producer, head writer, and the “-ke” in Bryke) backstage at some hotel before some interview we did in a whirlwind at SDCC. We’re still recovering from all the madness.

On behalf of Bryke, I’d like to thank ALL the LOK/ATLA fans who came out to San Diego Comic-Con, fought the crowds, waited in line, dressed up, did fanart, shared with us your passion and enthusiasm, and everything else. It was really special for us to watch the Book 2 trailer and premiere episode with such a large group of awesome fans. We both got a bit misty. This was by far the best convention for me. I hope you all had a great time as well. Get home safely. Love, Bryan

Mike and I did a LOOOOOONG overdue interview with Avatarspirit.net, a loooooong-running premiere fansite for the stuff he and I have created together. These are fan-driven questions about Korra Books 1 & 2, and more. I hope you enjoy it!
