Tomb Raider: Square Enix introduces a website for the 25th anniversary of the license
A few days ago, Square Enix recalled its desire to celebrate the 25 years of the Tomb Raider license, so existence started on PlayStation, Saturn, DOS, and Mac. Everything is starting to take shape today with the opening of an official website.
Soberly titled Tomb Raider 25, the site begins its existence by celebrating the first opus’ release, dating back to 1996. The purpose of this page is to highlight anecdotes, surprises, as well as fan-art or hijackings—iconic images.
To begin with, we are treated to the work of artistic director Benoch Adams, who revisits the very first cover of the license after having worked on six different opuses in 13 years at Crystal Dynamics.
“Throughout the year, we’ll be asking ourselves the question: What would the iconic art of Tomb Raider look like if it was reimagined by equally iconic artists? We plan to answer this question every month of 2021!”
“We kick off this month with the franchise art director and Tomb Raider mega-fan Brenoch Adams. He jumped at the chance to reinvent the cover of Lara’s very first adventure.”
Square Enix has planned to release a new game for mobile devices, called Tomb Raider Reloaded. Stay tuned for the next update.
