Hi-Rez’s Titan Forge Games team has been trusted with Nickelodeon’s beloved Avatar: The Last Airbender IP and will be introducing three of the most famous characters from the world of the four nations into SMITE: Aang, Zuko, and Korra.
“All three characters will be available as skins in the all-new Avatar Battle Pass. The Master Wizard Merlin will become Aang, bending water, earth, fire and air in a true show of Avatar power. Zuko will wield his sword – and bend fire – as Susano. And Korra will enter the Battleground of the Gods alongside pet polar bear dog Naga as Skadi.”
In SMITE’s announcement, the team mentioned they were “full of die-hard Avatar fans” and have taken the honor to work with these iconic characters and the world to which they belong very seriously.
“We went overboard with detail, capturing each Avatar character’s unique personality and referenced many fan-favorite moments from the shows.”
In addition to the character introductions, there will also be bonus prestige skins for each character, an Appa ward skin, and a global emote referencing the perpetually inconvenienced cabbage merchant we all know and love.
The Avatar: The Last Airbender battle pass will be available for purchase in July. You can also watch SMITE’s Mid-Season Update Show on Twitch, Wednesday, June 24 at 3:00 pm, EST for full reveals of the skins and more information about the Battle Pass.
