This latest round of screenshots shows off the fast-paced, competitive action of Pro-Bending, a unique gameplay mode for Platinum Games’ single-player title based on the sport within Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra animated TV series.

In Pro-Bending, two teams of three players each use the elemental forces of nature to seize territory and push one another off a floating battlefield.

It will also be available in a separate mode unlocked after completing Story Mode for the first time.
