Lara Croft will be back, but there will be bobblehead dolls and free mobile games.

The Shadow of the Tomb Raider was released only two years ago, but it seems somehow much longer since the last part of the latest Tomb Raider trilogy appeared.

The game, and the trilogy as a whole, was neither a flop nor a runaway success, so it’s hard to guess what’s going on, but now a temporary gap is an obvious way to keep the name alive. A mobile game that looks like is happening.

Apart from the entire Chibi art style, it is a very traditional take on the Tomb Raider myth, Lara is the original rise, with both Tyrannosaurus rex and rock monsters. It’s not like what you see in modern games.

This game is free to play and obviously not promising, but it’s described as an “action arcade” title, so you can play it relatively much like the original game.

The only other thing we certainly know is that it will be launched next year and is made by the Square Enix mobile team in London and the developers in Canada. The Emerald City game, its last game, is called GI Joe: Cobra War.

Whether you’re excited about the game, and when you try to face it, you probably won’t. Next year is the 25th anniversary of the series, so there’s good reason to expect the right game to be announced.

The Teaser trailer below doesn’t say that, but Lara’s birthday is October 25th, so there’s plenty of time before that. Probably at the Game Awards next month.
