Lara Croft’s upcoming offshoot of the Tomb Raider brand will hopefully cost no more than ten of your finest pounds. Brand Manager Karl Stewart told Eurogamer “We believe that, in terms of the arcade space, we’re trying to raise the bar of what it means to spend 10 pounds or 1200 Microsoft Points on nowadays.” Well, that’s the plan anyway as he continued with “Obviously we’re dictated to somewhat by the first-parties and their pricing models. Right now we’ve suggested to them that we want to come in line with all of the rest of the big hitters that have come out over the last year or so.” What’s more is Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is said to last around eight hours (give or take a frustrating puzzle) and another aim of Crystal Dynamics is to release the XBLA, PSN and PC downloadable in July or August. “Summer is the biggest time for arcade gaming and [the platform holders] have their time-lines. For PC we pick the date, but obviously we want to make sure we get as close to simultaneous ship as possible.” So fingers crossed that in the summer slump of disc releases, Ms Croft will be on hand to keep us entertained.
