Nickelodeon has teamed up with mythological action MOBA SMITE to introduce some of the characters from Avatar: The Last Airbender and its sequel, The Legend of Korra, to the game. The characters will be added as skins for existing characters.
Are these new characters for SMITE or skins?
Avatar Aang and his companion Zuko will be making appearances from The Last Airbender. From The Legend of Korra, you're getting Korra herself plus her loyal polar bear Naga. Aang is a skin for the Master Wizard Merlin, while Zuko will be available as a skin for the Japanese god Susano. Korra, meanwhile, will be a skin for the Norse Goddess Skadi. Her polar bear will join her as part of that skin. SMITE executive producer Travis Brown said the team "went overboard" with capturing detail from each Avatar character. You can check out the trailer right here:
It's not just these characters you'll be able to get your hands on when SMITE's battle pass launches in July. There's also an in-game representation of Appa coming in the pass, as well as an emote which honors the lucky cabbage vendor recurring gag from the Nickelodeon show. You'll also be able to get your hands on prestige skins that show Aang and Korra in their Avatar states, as well as Zuko disguised as the Blue Spirit (spoiler, sorry).
SMITE is getting its newest Battle Pass next month. If you're after more information about the upcoming content, you can check out the official SMITE Twitch channel this Wednesday, when more info will be available. Until then, you can grab SMITE for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC right now.
