Not to point out the obvious, but a game heroine with Lara Croft's experience and notoriety can have just about any platform she wants. The buxom beauty recently made the rounds with several consoles in Tomb Raider: Legend, which has been released on the PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Xbox 360.

However, one family of platforms that Ms. Croft has often given the cold shoulder to is Nintendo's, only coupling with the Game Boy handhelds a few times. Legend, a game designed as the series' rebirth, is changing all that and will be released on the DS and Game Boy Advance, as well as the previously announced version for the GameCube.

Today, Eidos Interactive announced that Tomb Raider: Legend for the Nintendo platforms will be released this fall. No gameplay details on the handheld versions were revealed, but a statement from the company says the DS and GBA versions will "capture the detail and breadth" of the console versions.

However, owners planning to pick up Tomb Raider: Legend for a Nintendo platform may get more than just a simple port. Eidos brand manger Kathryn Clements says, "There are a host of new and exciting features for Lara on the Nintendo platforms," but did not go into detail.
