Despite being a few years old, Avatar: The Last Airbender has enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity now that it is available on Netflix. A resurgence very much deserved, like myself and many other smarter people are all of the opinion that it’s one of, if not the, best cartoon ever made. And while Avatar has enjoyed no shortage of video game spin-offs (most of which aren’t quite at the caliber of the cartoon), it’s getting something really special this July: a crossover with the well-known MOBA, Smite.
Check it out.
While they are ultimately just skins for existing characters, they’re clearly more than just a simple reskin: particle effects have been updated, there appear to be some new animations, and I’d be willing to wager – although I don’t know this for certain – some new VO lines as well. Otherwise, it might be weird to hear Aang using the old man Merlin's voice.
To get your hands on this crossover swag, you’ll need the Avatar battle pass, which will include prestige skins, and a chance to get your very-own “in-game representation” of Appa, Aang’s flying bison.
So yeah, that’s pretty cool. I would never call Smite my favorite MOBA personally, but I might check this out as a fan of Avatar.
