Eidos announced “Tomb Raider: Anniversary” for the PS2, PSP and PC, a new adventure that’s being inspired by the very first game that started the sweaty, lustful fanboy ball rolling.

Here’s an excerpt from the Eidos release:

Inspired by the first Tomb Raider videogame, originally released in 1996, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a totally new 2006 adventure for Lara, faithfully preserving the elements which made the original Tomb Raider such a classic, selling over 7 million copies worldwide. Using an enhanced Tomb Raider Legend game engine, the graphics, technology and physics bring Laras adventure and pursuit of a mystical artifact known only as the Scion right up to todays technology standards and will offer gamers a completely new gameplay experience.

Hopefully, the old-school inspiration means the game will be much longer than Legend, which I liked, but could also finish in one work shift.
