Tomb Raider had an odd history in Japan. Most of the games were localized, but before Square Enix acquired Eidos the series moved from one company to another. Victor Interactive Software, the original creators of Harvest Moon, and progeny of Marvelous AQL published the PsOne games. Spike Chunsoft picked up the most recent entries.
Square Enix is giving Tomb Raider a bigger push than the other Eidos titles and held a Tomb Raider fan art contest. The grand prize winner gets a Charcoal Black PS3, Tomb Raider, a Play Arts Kai Lara Croft figure, and 100,000 yen ($1010). What’s more interesting than the prize is seeing the take Japanese fans gave a Western video game icon.
