Tomb Raider and the Wii U

Lara Croft

Some of you will know that the relaunch of Tomb Raider will be coming up soon. As soon as a month actually. I also know that a lot of you are quite excited to see Lara Croft back on your tv screens! Well sadly for one console she will not be making an appearance.

That’s right Miss Croft will be coming to the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. The rumors that Tomb Raider would be coming to the Wii U were dashed on the 28th of January. I know some of you are crying out wondering who to blame? Who got your hopes up?

A member of Straight Right’s team, a Chris Slater, stated they were porting a triple A Square Enix game to Wii U. Sadly that’s what happens when people get excited and hear key words. People heard him say port and Square Enix, they just assumed it would be for Tomb Raider.

Crystal Dynamics thwarted all rumors on the 28th of January, stating that Tomb Raider would only be coming to PC, Xbox 360, and the ps3. Tomb Raider was recreated using those platforms’ exclusive features and they didn’t want to force a port to the Wii U.
