Annnnnnd the hits just keep on coming, folks. In my second favorite game news of this past week, the latest games to get the HD repackaging treatment come to us from Eidos, Crystal Dynamics and publisher Square Enix in the form of The Tomb Raider Trilogy, shown here in its US and UK retail packaging. Set for a March 22, 2011 release (as physical media only - yes!), the upcoming compilation features high definition remastered versions of the PS2 hits Tomb Raider Legend (Crystal Dynamics first foray into the franchise, taking the development reins over from Core) and Tomb Raider Anniversary (a remake/re-imagining of the 1996 original) along with the PS3 game Tomb Raider Underworld. Additionally, the game will include cool bonuses such as trophy support for the PS2 games, a PS3 theme and two cool outfits players can use for their Home avatars (all below the jump).
Granted, while the package is a solid deal for $39.99, it WOULD have been an even better deal had Eidos and Square Enix had Crystal port over the two Xbox 360 exclusive Underworld DLC packs along with Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light onto the disc and charged an extra ten bucks or so more (hell, I'd pay!). Guardian of Light was (and is) an amazingly fun new twist to the long running franchise that featured single and co-op player experiences that offered faster-paced arcade-like gameplay complete with shooting, platforming, puzzle solving, score multipliers and some incredible isometric visuals. Hey Square! Any chance of that little miracle happening for those folks who don't have a PSN account yet... or is it too late? If it is, well just stick a version of the game on young Lara's upcoming adventure so more folks can see how cool it is!
