LONDON, UK (August 11, 2022) – Square Enix London Mobile in partnership with Paramount Consumer Products today announced that Avatar: Generations is heading into soft launch in select territories this August. Avatar: Generations is a new free-to-play, RPG adventure based on Nickelodeon’s beloved animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and is being developed in partnership with Vancouver-based studio Navigator Games. The game enters soft launch in Canada, Denmark, South Africa and Sweden for Android and iOS devices and access will expand to additional territories and iOS devices in the months following.

To celebrate the announcement, Square Enix London Mobile and Navigator Games have released first-look assets from the game, providing players with a glimpse into the mythical realm of Avatar: Generations here: www.avatargenerations.com

“We are thrilled to unveil ‘Avatar: Generations’ as the second official title in production from Square Enix London Mobile and I can’t wait for players to dive in later this year,” said Patrick Naud, Head of Mobile, Square Enix Montréal. “Avatar: Generations represents Square Enix London Mobile’s continued investment in publishing high-quality free-to-play mobile titles based on iconic IPs.”
 
Expanding the beloved universe of the world-renowned property, Avatar: Generations invites players to step into the shoes of fan-favorite characters across the franchise. The first chapter introduces Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph, Suki and Zuko accompanied by the much-loved companions Appa and Momo as they embark on a globetrotting quest to fulfill Aang’s destiny. Future expansions will explore Avatar Kyoshi, Korra, Roku, and more across the timelines of the Four Nations. The game will feature epic squad-based battles and unique adventure sequences, underpinned by deep upgrade and party customization systems as players recruit new heroes and grow their team potential. Players will also be able to experience fan-favorite locations, stories, and events in an open world, as well as brand new stories that expand the universe.
 
“With a globally beloved brand of this level, we’ve endeavored to create a game that expands the rich and storied universe of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender,’ in way that feels authentic and exciting to fans of the series and RPG games alike. At the same time, we’ve ensured that the game remains accessible to anyone who doesn’t traditionally play RPG’s” said Will Moore, CEO, Navigator Games. “Our partners at Square Enix London Mobile have been hugely supportive in these efforts, and we’re working closely with our community during this soft launch period to make the best version of the game possible.”
