Today we’re delighted to announce a new partnership with Crystal Dynamics to bring this great franchise to Evercade fans. These classic titles from the 32-bit era will be available as part of our new “Giga Cart” format of cartridges, which allows for increased capacity for more recent or CD-based retro games such as Tomb Raider and its sequels.

Tomb Raider Collection 1 will be cartridge number #40 of our red console line and marks the biggest franchise we’ve had to date. The new collection will release in July 2024 and be available for pre-order from April 30th, 2024 for £22.49/$24.99/€24.99.

Revisit the classic 32-bit adventure!

Tomb Raider is the game that defined an entire era of 3D gaming and the start of the classic era of Lara Croft’s adventures. Originally released in 1996, this adventure introduced the world to Lara with its exotic landscapes and mythological treasures alongside the genre-defining platforming and puzzle-solving gameplay.

Sequels Tomb Raider II Starring Lara Croft and Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft, from 1997 and 1998 respectively, are also included in this collection in their original 32-bit console form. The games feature many locations from around the world and are offered on Evercade as the complete games as they were when first released.
