Lara and Drake crossing paths? IGN reports Lara joins next Playstation Allstars

Damn lucky PS3 players, from the IGN article;

"They said it could never happen. After the debut of Uncharted, a rivalry quickly grew between the two most famous treasure hunters in video games, Lara Croft and Nathan Drake. Albeit this is a rivalry born of the fans, as arguments ensure of Uncharted copying Tomb Raider, and the rebirth of Tomb Raider copying from Uncharted. If you asked anyone just a month ago the chances of these two competing gaming icons crossing paths, the unanimous answer would be impossible.

But Sony doesn't see that the rivalry, held by the respective fans of these characters, need keep them apart. And after seeing the success of the reboot of Tomb Raider, a series well known on their platform, they leaped at the chance to negotiate a deal with Square Enix (whom they also have strong ties with) to bring Lara Croft in the same space with their own mascot, Nathan Drake.

But no, Lara Croft will not be featured as a cameo character in Uncharted 4 or any other such spin off title. Rather she is confirmed to be the newest addition to the roster for Playstation Allstars: Royal Rumble (the sequel to Battle Royale) set for Q1 2014 release. Kaz Hirai is very excited to announce that for the first time ever, fans will be able to duke it out with these two rival treasure hunters, to see who really does win.

And more new additions to join the cast of Playstation Allstars: Royal Rumble in the next few weeks, which we'll be ready to uncover with you."

There's even some early leak screens, they say still unfinished so may be a bit rough.

You should have just said she was DLC for the current PSABR since the second character page has four characters and a huge amount of blank space

I knew someone would do something like this as an April Fools Joke but I was kinda expecting Crash though.

Make a sequel to a flop? Would be cool DLC though. Se Laura beat his ass.
