While we don’t know how Netflix’s Tomb Raider anime will look, we do know what it will cover. It is set in the same universe and timeline as the three most recent games. So we’ll see the same Lara Croft that debuted in the 2013 PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC game. The story here will take place after Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Which means that Trinity shouldn’t be a threat anymore and we will see a Lara who may see herself as more of a guardian.

Here’s the reveal tweet.

This is one of two Legendary-related anime projects announced by Netflix on January 27, 2021. The other is Skull Island from Powerhouse Animation, which also worked on Castlevania. Judging by the name, it will likely involve characters like King Kong and Godzilla.

The Netflix Tomb Raider anime and Skull Island anime are in development.
