Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Is A PS4 Launch Title In Japan, Cheaper There Too


tombraiderSquare Enix announced Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for Japan and the visually upgraded port will be a PlayStation 4 launch title. The game is slated for release on February 22, 2014 for PS4 and will also be available for Xbox One whenever Microsoft’s console is released in the region.


What’s interesting is Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is actually cheaper in Japan than here. Square Enix has it priced for $59.99 in North America, but 4,800 yen ($46) in Japan. When Tomb Raider first came out it was a full priced 7,980 yen ($77) game the same price as Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and Drakengard 3. This is a rare case and might actually be a first for Square Enix.
