High-Definition Tomb Raider Trilogy Gunning To PlayStation 3


So many HD collections, so many wallets destroyed. First, Sony announced an Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD pack for PlayStation 3. Then, Ubisoft announced the Prince of Persia trilogy. Now, Crystal Dynamics have confirmed a Tomb Raider trilogy.


The confirmation comes by way of Karl Stewart, Global Brand Director for Crystal Dynamics, on his Twitter feed:


“Yes, it’s official. #TombRaider PS3 ‘Trilogy’ pack coming in the new year. Full details next week. Watch this space.”


Stewart made the post after noticing a report by Joystiq, who came across a listing for Tomb Raider Trilogy on The Tomb Raider Trilogy will contain Tomb Raider Legend, Tomb Raider Anniversary and Tomb Raider Underworld. The first two weren’t originally on the PlayStation 3, and will get a high-definition makeover.


It should be noted that Tomb Raider Anniversary was originally on PlayStation 2, Windows, Wii and Xbox 360, and so was Tomb Raider: Legend (just swap the Wii out for the Gamecube). We’re not sure which builds Crystal Dynamics will use for the Trilogy pack, but we should know more in the coming days.
