To celebrate the launch of Tomb Raider this year, Microsoft has collaborated with Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix to unveil a limited edition Lara Croft themed 360 controller. Featuring a design inspired by Lara's trials and tribulations in the series reboot, the wireless controller also contains a customizable D-pad, which is able to switch from a "plus" design to a "disc" pattern.
Fans who purchase the controller will also receive a download token for an Xbox 360 exclusive playable character--the Scavenger Archer. The controller will be available with the game's release on March 5 in the U.S. and will cost $59.99. In Australia, the controller will launch February 21 for a recommended retail price of A$69.95.
Tomb Raider is the first instalment in the series since 2010's downloadable multiplayer-focused Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and the first standalone game since 2008's Tomb Raider: Underworld. Karl Stewart, Crystal Dynamics's global brand director, revealed last year that the game's campaign will last between 12 and 15 hours, dependent on gamers' play style.
Tomb Raider is due out March 5, 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
