Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary Coming to the Wii in November
Eidos Interactive announced today that Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary for the Wii will contain over three hours of exclusive new content in the Wii version of the game. With over 32 million copies sold to date, the Tomb Raider franchise will finally be making its way to the Wii on November 13th, with a revamped version of the original game – which means improved graphics and next generation gameplay mechanics.
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary for the Wii brings Lara to the next level by enabling a hands-on experience with “flick of the wrists” controls, an active aim combat system, and more for fans of the franchise and new adopters.
“Bringing Lara to the Wii platform has allowed us to creatively expand the Tomb Raider experience and add some really exciting and brand new game play elements” said Morgan Gray, senior producer, Crystal Dynamics. “The
additional content, cryptic challenges and motion sensitive puzzle solving require much more involved input from the player.”
New game features include; hands on challenges, an archaeologist’s tool kit, a new remote flashlight and more exclusive new content. The new tool kit allows players to break through walls, take charcoal rubbings and uncover important clues buried in dense layers of ancient rock. Players will also be able to twist the Wii remote to illuminate dark areas with Lara Croft’s new remote flashlight uncovering secrets hidden in the dark.
“This marks two important developments in the gaming industry: the coming of age of a classic franchise and the first time gamers get to physically emulate the Tomb Raider icon,” said Robert Lindsey, executive vice president of sales and marketing, Eidos, Inc. “Tomb Raider: Anniversary for the Wii will be an essential key addition to game libraries this holiday season.”
Tomb Raider Anniversary became available for the Xbox 360 yesterday, October 23rd.
