Tomb Raider: 1-2-3 Remastered Collection Brings Lara Croft’s Classics to Modern Hardware.
Lara Croft embarks on her defining 90s adventures once again thanks to Tomb Raider: 1-2-3 Remastered, arriving February 2024. The aptly titled collection bundles enhanced versions of the original landmark Tomb Raider trilogy.
Collection Includes Enhanced Versions of All Content
Announced during the latest Nintendo Direct, the remaster compiles all content from 1996’s Tomb Raider through to 2000’s The Last Revelation. Developer Aspyr aims to make Lara Croft’s simulated-3D pioneers accessible on contemporary platforms.
The revival follows recent cinematic reboots casting a grittier, more vulnerable Lara. But many classic fans pine for the campy action and expansive tombs that kicked off the franchise. Tomb Raider: 1-2-3 scratches that nostalgic itch.
Players can switch between original polygonal presentation and a modern widescreen overhaul. Gameplay mechanics stay true to form, for better or worse. Though control and camera improvements seem likely.
Cherished extras like bonus levels and outfits also feature to ensure the most complete possible versions. The package celebrates maximum 1990s Tomb Raiding.
Additional Platform Ports Beyond Switch Likely
Interestingly, the initial announcement only confirmed Nintendo Switch as a target platform. But fans expect additional conversions for PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
Aspyr possesses strong porting pedigree across multiple platforms. And Lara’s global appeal makes going wide a prudent move. Switch is likely only the first stop on a remastered world tour.
These enhanced collections could spur re-releases of other Lara classics like Angel of Darkness or Legend. But for now, the news of this trilogy will have fans around the world absolutely buzzing with excitement.
While later entries pushed the cinematic reboot angle, the 1990s originals offer an irresistible vintage charm. Ancient ruins beckon old-school raiders back once more.
