Three classic Tomb Raider games are set to launch on Switch. Exciting times for switch fans all over the world. This simply means that Lara Croft is set to make a return to the Switch with a remaster of her first three games.
Three Classic Tomb Raider Games on Switch
If it is that you are a fan of the classic Tomb Raider series, Nintendo Direct of today has something very special for you. Lara Croft is set to make her triumphant return to the console as well as PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, with a remaster of her very first three games in Tomb Raider I-III Remastered Starring Lara Croft.
The three games in question are all coming to the Switch with improved graphics and, hopefully, as well as improved control schemes. The classic trilogy of Lara Croft has been rereleased on PC and even on mobile, but the PC release however suffered from lackluster controls that made it very hard to raid tombs properly.
What to Expect From the Game
If it is that you have only experienced Tomb Raider via the more recent Square Enix reboots, then you are in for a treat. The original Tomb Raider games in question had every bit of the action, platforming, as well as puzzle solving as its successors but with quite a bit more wackiness that I have come to miss in the later games. There were dinosaurs, mystic dragons, and even exploring underwater shipwrecks, as well as Area 51.
I am very excited to relive my childhood playing these very games on the original PlayStation blocky graphics and all, as the game will now include a toggle to switch between the original remastered graphics. (Know that I will very much be playing with the original graphics.) Also, the developers of the game, Aspyr, have added new secret levels to each of the games as a treat for me.
Tomb Raider I-III Remastered Starring Lara Croft Release and Platforms
Tomb Raider I-III Remastered Starring Lara Croft steals directly onto the Switch on February 14th. The game is also coming to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. I really cannot wait to lock Winston in the freezer again.
Nintendo is remaking Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door for the Switch
In other news, Nintendo is set to bring another of its very much beloved RPGs to the Nintendo Switch. Paper Mario is reportedly back. The gaming company at its September Nintendo Direct event announced a remake of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, which in case you don’t know is the beloved RPG that initially came out for the GameCube. That aside, the game in question is set to be released sometime in 2024.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Review
It looks really incredible in large part all thanks to the original paper and cardboard art design game holding up remarkably well. But there however have clearly been some graphical enhancements in a bid to make the game look even better on the hardware of the Nintendo Switch.
In the trailer from Nintendo, characters, in particular, looked really good: personally, they actually seemed like they are cardboard cutouts that came to real life. The remake in question also looks to be incredibly faithful to the original game, as the just-released trailer is packed with iconic moments that I quite remember from my time playing it on GameCube.
