New Square Enix Studio Working on 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Mobile Game

Square Enix has announced plans for a brand new mobile game inspired by Nickelodeon's beloved animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender!


The new Avatar game is being developed by Square Enix London Mobile, Square Enix's new London-based studio with a focus on developing high-quality, free-to-play mobile games, and Navigator Games, another mobile games studio.

“It has been an incredible privilege to partner with Square Enix London Mobile on the creation of a game with such an iconic IP,” said Will Moore, CEO at Navigator Games. “The Avatar: The Last Airbender universe has so many layers and complex storylines to explore and we look forward to fully unveiling it and sharing it with all the incredibly passionate and loyal Avatar fans in the future.”

We don't yet know what the gameplay will look like for the Avatar game. However, Navigator Games' last project, Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, was a turn-based fantasy RPG.

The mobile game market is still incredibly strong. In 2019, Apple made more money on games than Xbox, Sony, Nintendo, and Activision combined. The new Avatar game will join previously released Nickelodeon mobile games, including SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off, Loud House: Outta Control, and SpongeBob: Patty Pursuit.


Below is Square Enix's official press release announcing the news:

SQUARE ENIX ANNOUNCES LONDON MOBILE STUDIO

Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender and Tomb Raider Reloaded, New Action Adventure Coming in Early 2022

LONDON, UK (October 20, 2021) – Today SQUARE ENIX LTD. announced its latest venture, Square Enix London Mobile, a studio driven by its mission of putting people first while publishing high-quality, free-to-play mobile games. The studio currently has two titles in development based on world-renowned entertainment properties, Tomb Raider and Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender, and is actively recruiting marketing and production talent to bring these titles and future to-be-announced mobile games to players across the globe.
 
“At Square Enix London Mobile, our goal is to move the world through play and in order to do this, we need to grow our team with even more unique voices, varieties of perspectives and creative energy,” said Ed Perkins, Studio Head at Square Enix London Mobile “We have great games in development, access to Square Enix-owned IP and relationships with the world’s top entertainment companies, but our people will be the competitive advantage that fuels our success now and in the future.”
 
As the group seeks to add new internal talent, the as-yet-untitled Avatar: The Last Airbender mobile game is in development with Vancouver-based studio Navigator Games.
 
“It has been an incredible privilege to partner with Square Enix London Mobile on the creation of a game with such an iconic IP,” said Will Moore, CEO at Navigator Games. “The Avatar: The Last Airbender universe has so many layers and complex storylines to explore and we look forward to fully unveiling it and sharing it with all the incredibly passionate and loyal Avatar fans in the future.”

Square Enix London Mobile is also at work on the previously announced Tomb Raider Reloaded, a nostalgic, action-arcade style adventure designed specifically for mobile. Developed in partnership with Crystal Dynamics, Tomb Raider Reloaded will feature classic elements from the original Tomb Raider trilogy, as players step into the shoes of the franchise’s iconic hero, Lara Croft, to solve puzzles, escape treacherous traps and collect coveted relics from secret tombs across the globe.

In the series, Janeway will serve as the starship’s built-in emergency training hologram.

STAR TREK: PRODIGY is from CBS’ Eye Animation Productions, CBS Studios’ new animation arm; Nickelodeon Animation Studio, led by President of Animation Ramsey Naito; Secret Hideout; and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Katie Krentz, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers alongside co-showrunners Kevin and Dan Hageman. Ben Hibon directs, co-executive produces and serves as the creative lead of the all-new animated series. Aaron Baiers also serves as co-executive producer.
