Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Avatar: The Last Airbender -The Burning Earth (GBA/ND/PS2/Wii)

"THQ released the first Avatar video game last year, with the brand rapidly achieving a major sales milestone by selling in more than one million units worldwide," said Scott Guthrie, executive vice president, THQ. "We are excited to continue the growth of this hit video game franchise, as well as THQ's overall extensive Nickelodeon portfolio, with the launch of Avatar: The Last Airbender--The Burning Earth as the first Nickelodeon title for Xbox 360."

"THQ has done a fantastic job translating the epic adventures of the Avatar: The Last Airbender television series into engaging interactive entertainment that brings an entirely new Avatar experience to fans," said Shaul Olmert, vice president of digital products, Nickelodeon.

"We're excited to make our Xbox 360 debut with our new Avatar game."

Based on the popular Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series from Nickelodeon, players will follow the storyline of the second season as Aang puts up a courageous fight against the evil Fire Nation to restore balance in the war-torn Earth Kingdom city. Players will be able to experience an epic adventure playing as five new playable characters including Appa, Jet, Toph, Zuko and Uncle Iroh as they experience brand-new firebending moves and go head-to-head in the all new Arena Combat for intense fighting action. Dramatic air battles will also take place as players experience new flying levels while playing as Momo and Appa.

Developed by THQ Australia Avatar: The Last Airbender -The Burning Earth is currently available for the PS2, Wii, NDS and GBA. In addition, the game is making its next-gen debut on the Xbox 360 next month.
