Tomb Raider Trilogy Raids PS3 in March

Continuing the hot trend of older games bundling up for value-packed ‘HD’ re-releases, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have confirmed previously leaked plans for Tomb Raider Trilogy, a PS3-exclusive compilation of the three most recent Tomb Raider titles. Those three games include Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Tomb Raider: Underworld. This is a bigger deal than it may seem too, as Legend and Anniversary were previously only available for PS2 and PSP of Sony’s platforms (they were also on PC, Xbox 360, Wii, etc.), so this will be their first appearance on the PS3.

In addition to the games, the trilogy pack will come with some choice extras, including a Tomb Raider XMB theme pack, Lara Croft and Viking Thrall avatar costumes for PlayStation Home avatars and a collection of HD “Making of…” videos recapping the entire series. A voucher for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light would’ve been icing on the cake, but Square Enix isn’t going quite that far. But oh well, I guess we’ll just have to settle for three great action/adventure games and some cool bonus goodies, all for only $39.99.

Tomb Raider Trilogy ships on March 22nd.
