THQ announces game based on The Last Airbender film

Unsurprisingly, THQ has announced that it will be publishing a game based on the upcoming M. Night Shyamalan film, The Last Airbender.

The film is based on the Nickelodeon cartoon, Avatar: The Last Airbender, which had to drop the “Avatar” for obviously reasons that start with name “James” and ends with “Academy Award winning 3D blockbuster film.” While the Shyamalan movie might be decent, I have little faith that the game — which is slated for release on Wii and Nintendo DS only — will deliver anything but a standard movie-to-game cash-in.

Why do I say that? There’s a trailer after the jump (because putting it anywhere but kind of hidden would be irresponsible), and I urge you to watch it. Yeah, that happened. Not even easy Achievements, which neither the DS or Wii support, can save this one.

The Last Airbender is set to release along with the film, which hits theaters this June.
