Square Enix today released a portable version of its 1996 original action game Tomb Raider for iOS devices. The game is available today on iTunes for 99 cents.

According to Square Enix, Tomb Raider for iOS is a "full, unedited, unadulterated experience" of the original game. Tomb Raider for iOS also includes two extra chapters that were featured in the game's 1998 re-release. In all, Square Enix says you should expect around 15 hours of gameplay.

Square Enix did not say if it plans to release Tomb Raider for Android or Windows devices.

The company rebooted the Tomb Raider franchise this year with a new game from Crystal Dynamics. A Definitive Edition version of that game launches for Xbox One and PlayStation next month, while the studio is already at work on a full follow-up for the new consoles.
