Want to know more about The Legend of Korra Season 2? There's an app for that

It seems like forever since the first season of The Legend of Korra wrapped up (hint: it was only a year and 10 days ago), and despite its way too neat and tidy self-contained storyline fans have been clamoring for more Korra.

This is due, in part, to the fact that Season 2 should have aired by now, but there have been some rather vague delays which have held up production.

Now, new information on Season 2 is available from the most unlikely of sources - an official iOS app dubbed 'The Legend of Korra: Enhanced Experience'.

This free app comes courtesy of Nickelodeon and delivers a bunch of expected information on the first season of Korra while sharing some new information on the second.

Namely, it features character designs for Korra's waterbending cousins Desna and Eska (left and right at the top of the page, good luck telling which is which) along with storyboards and animatics.  Unfortunately, there's a catch - the app is, at current, an iPad exclusive designed for iBooks and won't work on an iPhone or iPod touch.

Additionally, if you have an iPad but are looking to take in Season 2 of Korra completely unspoiled, you'll obviously want to avoid this app - but if you're up for finding out who of the three characters at the top of this page can throw a goddamn iceberg at their opponents, you'll probably want to download the app and pray that Korra's creators put the finishing touches on the Spirits soon!
