Avatar: The Last Airbender–Into the
Inferno, which can be played by up to two players, follows the storyline of the
third season of Nickelodeon’s highly successful animated television series,
Avatar: The Last Airbender. In Avatar: The Last Airbender–Into the Inferno,
players will embark on an epic adventure and participate in the climactic
conclusion to the 100-year-old war.  Playing as one of their favorite
characters from the show, players will perform similar explosive martial arts
moves, as well as bend all four elements – Earth, Fire, Water and Air – to help
them in their journey.  Cinematic air battles will take place as players
soar through the sky on gliders in new flying levels.  The Nintendo DS
version of the game will also introduce a brand new and unique “bobble head”
style of animation previously seen in Nickelodeon’s special Avatar series of
animated shorts.  The game is rated E for Everyone (DS) and E10+ for
everyone 10 and older (Wii and PlayStation 2).
