Square Enix Montreal has announced Lara Croft GO is coming later this year to phones and tablets, building on the success of the popular Hitman GO series:
Lara Croft GO expands the turn-based puzzle gameplay and takes you on an adventure set in a long-forgotten world. Explore the ruins of an ancient civilization, discover hidden secrets and face deadly challenges as you uncover the myth of the Queen of Venom.
Patrick Naud, Head of Studio at Square Enix Montréal said in a statement “GO is a celebration of our iconic franchises,” following up to say “With Hitman GO, we’ve distilled a brand we love to its core… the Essence of Assassination.”
The new game will be worked on with Crystal Dynamics to bring back some “nostalgic love” people have for Lara Croft and show fans the “Essence of Adventure.”
Check out the teaser trailer below:
With Hitman GO available for iOS, you can expect Lara Croft GO to launch for iPhone and iPad as well sometime later this year, made in Canada by Square Enix’s team in Montreal. We could possibly see another exclusive soft launch in Canada for this game–stay tuned!
