Lara Croft GO headed to mobile and tablet ‘soon’

‘Set in a long-forgotten world’

Square Enix has some experience putting out mobile games with big name IPs. Hitman GO released last year and by most accounts it was a solid title. Now it looks like it’s our favorite tomb raider’s turn with Lara Croft GO.

Comparing screens, it looks like Lara Croft GO uses an on-rails movement system similar to Hitman GO. However, rather than getting her assassination on, Lara is more suited to environmental puzzles and fighting supernatural beings. One interesting thing to note is that this takes on the Lara Croft moniker rather than the Tomb Raider name, suggesting it is likely set to be more similar to the more puzzle-focused The Guardian of Light and The Temple of Osiris than to the mainline action series.
