Two Lara Croft Games Are Headed to the Switch

Enter The Tomb Raider

No confirmed release date has been announced, but Switch gamers can expect the games to release next year. Crystal Dynamics and Feral Games will work together to bring the games to the Switch. Guardian of Light was originally released in 2010 on Xbox and PlayStation consoles as well as Steam.

The game was a bit different from traditional Tomb Raider releases. It was played from a top-down perspective and put an emphasis on cooperative play. The game was well-received critically and led to the sequel, Temple of Osiris.

Temple of Osiris was released at the end of 2014. It followed in the same style as Guardian of Light. Players were treated with Croft’s signature dual pistols that carried infinite ammo. The game carried a more arcade-style than the traditional Tomb Raider releases. Like Guardian of Light, an emphasis was put on cooperative gaming.

These games were released just prior to and during the reboot trilogy of the Tomb Raider franchise. Although they do not follow the same cannon as the reboot, Crystal Dynamics was still involved in the project. The reboot trilogy began in 2013 with the release of Tomb Raider. Rise of the Tomb Raider was released in 2015. The conclusion of the trilogy “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” was released in 2018.
