Tomb Raider: Legend getting GameCubed

Eidos confirms Lara Croft is coming to Nintendo's current-generation console this fall.

76 Comments

With Tomb Raider: Legend coming to the Xbox 360, speculation was rife that the game might be ported to another next-generation console. While that may still happen, it has now been confirmed that Lara Croft's latest adventure will be coming to another current-generation console.

Today, Eidos reps confirmed to GameSpot that it is readying a version of Tomb Raider: Legend for the GameCube. When the game is released this fall, it will mark the series' debut on the GameCube--or any Nintendo console for that matter. It will, however, be the fourth Tomb Raider game for a Nintendo platform, after Tomb Raider: The Prophecy (Game Boy Advance, 2002), Tomb Raider: Curse of the Sword (Game Boy Color, 2001), and Tomb Raider (Game Boy Color, 2000).

Having gone gold last week, Tomb Raider: Legend is set for release on April 11, for the PC, Xbox, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 2. The next-gen edition will sell for $59.99, the current-gen console versions for $49.99, and the PC edition for $39.99. A PlayStation Portable version of the game is due later in the year. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's recent hands-on preview.

Yay! This is great news for GC owners (although I had seen it coming)! GS was pretty late reporting this though (it was on IGN 2 days ago!) but that doesn't matter. I hope Eidos ports Hitman: BM back to GC as well because I know many GC owners who were dissapointed because they missed out on Contracts. We can only hope...

I'll be too busy playing it on 360, but good news none-the-less.

Hopefully it is as good as the Tomb Raider GBA game. That game rocked.

Gamecube hasn't had a good game in a while so this will really help them.

Oh. I thought this was an April Fools joke... wow, this is refreshing. Eidos making up with Nintendo for Revolution, maybe?

cool, Tomb Raider for the GC. Nintendo is actually trying to get some life into GC before it dies.

Not sure if this was really such a good idea this late in the game. I believe I would have went ahead and made it for the Revolution. Still it'll be something new and different for the Cube.

Since the Revolution can play any Gamecube games you might as well declare any newly announced Gamecube games as Revolution launch titles (assuming they are released for the Gamecube before or very close to the Revolution launch).

Great news. Thank you Eidos. Lara will certainly find a home in my GameCube.

Good for cube owners, but I also have a 360 so I'll be playing it on that.

Never heared of a game getting a GC release after the project started. Most games cut away the GC version.
