Square Enix’s Tomb Raider team really like Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The franchise’s usual developer, Crystal Dynamics, is currently busy on Marvel’s Avengers, and probably will be for a long time as it’s a game as a service title, which is why Eidos Montréal took over for Shadow Of The Tomb Raider.

That makes the future of Tomb Raider very hard to guess at the moment and there aren’t really any clues in the official Twitter channel. Although it is surprisingly busy, even if most of the posts at the moment are about Animal Crossing.

Not only have many fans being posting their own Animal Crossing versions of Lara Croft but the ‘Tomb Raider team’ has also being sharing their own designs, including a number of 2D images that can be used for flags, T-shirts, and the like.

The sphinx model and Egyptian backdrop are things that already exist in Animal Crossing but it is interesting how easily Animal Crossing lends itself to a Tomb Raider theme.

A new Tomb Raider film, still staring Alicia Vikander, is due out next year so perhaps an announcement about a new game may be made then.
