This Is Your Tomb Raider Box Art
Officially announced by Square Enix last night, this is the box cover artwork for the new Tomb Raider next year:



Until they change it again, I think it's the third box art I've seen.

Personally I have a problem with it, one of the things that made Lara iconic was holsters strapped to both sides, and I think every title up to now has included that imagery.

I appreciate that this is an origins story, so yes, they can get away with it, but take away the 'Tomb Raider' title from the box art and the character is then barely recognisable as Lara. If that's what they're aiming for then it worked, but, I dunno, it just feels wrong to me.
