The top-down action games bring Lara’s adventures to the Switch
Some more Tomb Raider adventures are going on the go. Two Lara Croft games are coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2022, marking her debut on the console.
Feral Interactive announced that Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris are coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2022.

These top-down Tomb Raider games are separate from the Tomb Raider reboot series. They’re instead a little bit more arcade-inspired, with fast combat to go with the puzzles. And they have co-operative multiplayer as well, which seems like it might be rad for Switch.
No date has been set yet for the debut of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light or Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris on Switch, outside the year 2022.
As for more Tomb Raider, there weren’t too many announcements on future games. There is still the Tomb Raider Netflix series, which has enlisted Hayley Atwell to play Lara. Maybe that series can reinvigorate the game series a bit.
Even though Shadow of the Tomb Raider was only three years ago, it feels like it’s been ages since we’ve seen Lara in video game action. At least this seems like a good reason to retread some old ground on the Switch next year.
