Ten years after the series first appeared, Tomb Raider will be back in 2006. The new game, called Legends, promises... Well, more Tomb Raider, really. "Everyone working on Legend is buzzing right now," claimed Larry Sparks, Eidos Spokesman. "We are all so excited that this totally new incarnation of Lara will capture gamers' hearts, just as her original game did, and challenge their minds like no Tomb Raider they've ever seen." Totally new, you say? Snigger.
In any event, the game is scheduled for a April 7th release on Xbox, PS2 and PC in the PAL world - four whole days before the North American release, interestingly enough. But, whether the game will actually be any sort of improvement on the rather diabolical Angel of Darkness, or introduce any significant innovations at all, remains to be seen. Oh, and Xbox 360 and PSP versions will follow shortly after, probably with a 20% price and graphics increase for the 360 incarnation, and decrease for the little portable.
There's a few shiny new shots in the media panel, if you would care to look.
