Original post (6/16): If you’re a fan of the Tomb Raider franchise or the popular mobile puzzler Hitman Go, you’re in for a nice surprise. During E3 2015, popular video game developer Square Enix announced a new game for smartphones and tablets called Lara Croft Go. It’s a puzzle adventure game that takes many visual and gameplay cues from Hitman Go, while also alluding to the calm atmosphere that’s present in ustwo’s Monument Valley.
A stark departure from the other action-packed Tom Raider titles we’re all used to, Lara Croft Go focuses greatly on visual effects and turn-based gameplay. Square Enix’s Hitman Go has proven itself worthy as a puzzler on mobile devices, so it wouldn’t surprise us in the slightest if this new title is a hit among mobile gamers – especially with the brand recognition that Tomb Raider has built up over the last few years.
The company didn’t announce a specific release date for the game (or device compatibility, for that matter), so we’ll have to wait for more details to trickle in throughout the coming weeks.
