Nintendo Announces Remastered Tomb Raider Trilogy for PS5, PS4, and Switch

Nintendo has revealed that the Tomb Raider 1-3 Remastered trilogy will be released on February 14, 2024, for PS5, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.

The announcement was made during the September 14 Nintendo Direct, where it was announced that the first three Tomb Raider games from the 1990s will be getting a graphical upgrade.

The remastered versions of the games will feature updated graphics and will include all expansions, such as The Unfinished Business, The Gold Mask, and The Lost Artifact, as well as the secret levels.

In a trailer showcased during the Nintendo Direct, players were able to see a comparison between the original and updated visuals of the game. Nintendo also mentioned that players will be able to switch between the new graphics and the classic polygon look during gameplay.

Nintendo described the games as follows: “Uncover treasures of the ancient world by solving puzzles and unraveling mysteries lost to the ravages of time. Follow the iconic Lara Croft around the world and face off against deadly foes and dangerous myths.”

The remastered trilogy is currently available for pre-order on the Switch for $26.99 / £24.29. It will be sold at the full price of $29.99 / £26.99 upon release.

Shortly after the Nintendo Direct, the official PlayStation blog also confirmed that the games will be coming to PS5 and PS4. Pre-orders for the PlayStation versions of the games are now available, although specific links have not been provided yet.

The first Tomb Raider game was originally released in 1996, followed by the sequel in 1997, and Tomb Raider 3 in 1998. The franchise has since seen numerous sequels and a modern reboot trilogy developed by Crystal Dynamics.

Last year, Amazon Games announced their collaboration with Crystal Dynamics on the next Tomb Raider title. The upcoming game is expected to be the largest and most expansive entry in the series to date and will utilize Unreal Engine 5 to enhance its storytelling elements.
