Eidos Interactive Ltd., one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, can confirm the European street date for the PlayStation 2 and PC Games For Windows versions of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary will be June 1st 2007, with the PSP version to follow very shortly.
The world’s love affair with Lara Croft began back in 1996 with the launch of the original Tomb Raider game. Since then, Tomb Raider has gone on to become one of the world’s most successful videogame franchises of all time, and Lara’s latest adventure, Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a celebration of Lara’s original adventure in an entirely new Crystal Dynamics game.
“Our goal was to capture the essence of what made the original Tomb Raider game such an incredible adventure, and use this to create a brand new Tomb Raider game. Building on the technology, tools and experience we developed for Tomb Raider: Legend, we’ve created Anniversary, a completely fresh experience for Tomb Raider fans and a brand new game for those who are new to the series,” said Sean Vesce, Studio Manager, Crystal Dynamics.
“The original Tomb Raider game made Lara Croft the icon she is today. Tomb Raider: Anniversary is our way of paying tribute to Lara and the history of the franchise that will not only appeal to her fans, but also encourage a whole new generation of Lara lovers,” said Kathryn Clements, Senior Brand Manager, Tomb Raider.
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary will ship throughout Europe on June 1st on PlayStation 2 and PC Games For Windows.
