Tomb Raider Reimagining Like Trying to "Redo James Bond or Batman"

The new Tomb Raider is a hugely important project for Crystal Dynamics as a studio. For the company, it's all about living up to the promise of the purchase by Square Enix, and perhaps more importantly, living up the grand legacy that Tomb Raider carries as a brand in the games business.

Taking apart an icon so that she can be rebuilt is a dangerous task. It could easily backfire on Crystal Dynamics, but based on our conversation and what we saw at E3, the studio appears more than confident in overhauling the franchise. GamesIndustry International caught up Crystal Dynamics' global brand director, Karl Stewart, to talk about the challenge of remaking Lara and what else we can expect from Crystal Dynamics in the future.

Thing is to an extent both James Bond and Batman have been redone and well in recent years with their respective reboots: Batman Begins and James Bond: not quite to the same extent as crystal dynamics is doing however I like what they've done from what I see: hell I'll be able to play a Tomb Raider without thinking anyone who knew/saw would probably assume me some perv because lets be honest they did somewhat like to emphasise her 'assets' in the games :/
