Seems more of Prince Of Persia (2008) Style, I am interested, they should have shown THAT instead of what we saw.


It's a lot harder to show exploration and puzzel solving in a triler than cinimatic scripted events. It's the same reason that stealth games like Splinter Cell, Dishonored and Hitman are shown with run and gun action, because showing someone spend 10 minutes sneaking arround in the shadows doesn't make an exiting trailer. It's also why XCOM: Enemy Unknown's E3 trailer was a bunch of cinimatic kill shots and explosions, as showing someone spend several minutes planning out a turn is not an exiting trailer.

not at the moment

 

Despite the magazine listing to the contrary, the new Tomb Raider reboot is not on the way to Wii U.

In the interest of heading off misinformation at the pass, we wanted to drop a quick note correcting a mistake in the July issue of Game Informer, which is on shelves right now. We incorrectly listed Tomb Raider coming to Wii U, which is incorrect. Tomb Raider is headed to 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on March 5th of next year.

If so, it may be the best version......but the 360 gets the DLC first so I'm going with that one. Had there been no DLC, I'd definitely want to go with a Wii U version.



mZuzek loves to pre-order

This might prove to some people that Nintendo can be attractive to 3rd Parties!

Or that HD really does make a difference.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

other than watch dogs being number one, tomb raider was a close tie at 2nd place with ac3.
And i do hope it comes to wii-u, even if i have to wait.

So they made the rumor, and killed the rumor, but has anything truly official been stated yet?

Speaking in an FAQ on the Eidos Games forum, she said Crystal Dynamics isn't interested in creating a port for Wii U.

"If we started building a game for the Wii U we would build it very differently and we would build it with unique functionality."

However, since the re-imagined Tomb Raider started production prior to Nintendo's announcement of the Wii U and is designed around the current generation platforms, the studio has no plans to release the game on Nintendo's upcoming console.

"When we started developing the game we made a conscious decision that it was all about building the game for a platform and making sure the game was specific to that platform. Given that we've been working on the game quite a while before Wii U was announced I think it would not be right to try and port it across."

The FAQ also confirmed the developer is "in the middle of discussions with a company" about a Mac version of Tomb Raider, but it is unlikely to be released at the same time as its Xbox 360, PS3 and PC counterparts.
