In a big ol’ press release outlining celebratory events and goodies for Tomb Raider’s 25th Anniversary, Square Enix has confirmed that Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris will head to Switch in 2022.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris are arcade-inspired action-adventure games that combine the hallmarks of Tomb Raider, including exploration and discovery, platforming, and puzzle solving, with co-operative multiplayer, character progression and fun fast-paced combat.
They were originally released way back in 2010 and 2014, developed by Crystal Dynamics which would further establish its credentials with the impressive reboot of the main 3D series and most recently Marvel’s Avengers. Doing the bulk of the work on the Switch ports is Feral Interactive, which did an excellent job with the system’s version of Alien: Isolation.
While they may not have been at the top of many lists in terms of desired Switch ports, these games reviewed relatively well when they first released and could be a good fit for the system.
Are you interested in picking these up on Switch next year?
