Two Tomb Raider series games will appear on the Nintendo Switch next year
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Tomb Raider, Square Enix has announced the upcoming debut of the series on the Nintendo Switch.
However, instead of transferring the latest trilogy or old games of the main line, the publisher will release two spin-offs of the series on a hybrid platform: Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.
There are no port details at the moment, except that the release will take place next year. The transfer is handled by Feral Interactive studio, which previously made Switch versions of Alien: Isolation and GRID Autosport.
Initially, the projects were released in 2010 and 2014. Both games offer elements of action-adventure with platforming and puzzles familiar from the series, but differ in an isometric camera and are focused on co-passing. The first part tells about the adventures of Lara Croft in the impenetrable jungles of Central America in the company of the ancient Mayan warrior Totek, while the second unfolds already in the deserts of Egypt, and the companions of the heroine are archaeologist Carter Bell, the goddess Isis and the god of Mountains.
Square Enix also announced that Tomb Raider: Reloaded, which is coming out next year for iOS and Android, will offer voice acting options for Lara Croft. Players will be able to choose between Shelly Blonde (TR1), Judith Gibbins (TR 2-3), Johnell Elliott (TR 4-6) or Keeley Hawes (TR 7-9) as the voice of the Tomb Raider.
