On Twitter’s official Tomb Raider account, I just tweeted A new Tomb Raider game is coming to mobile and it is called Tomb Raider Reloaded. It is currently being developed by Emerald City Games in partnership with the Square Enix London mobile team and will be released in 2021.

Not only does the tweet above show that the new Tomb Raider game is coming to mobile in 2021, it also provides a teaser trailer. Sadly, this trailer only shows pre-rendered scenes in less than a minute. This video barely reveals what we can expect from the game, but when it comes to Lara’s design, it’s clear that the style offers something a little more cute.

Unfortunately, there are very few items to go on, so your guess is just as good as me when contemplating what type of game Tomb Raider Reloaded will be. Of course, my curiosity got better, and I found Emerald City Games on the Play Store. Lionheart: Dark Moon, A regular RPG full of in-app purchases, I’m a little worried. So, if I had to speculate, I’d bet Tomb Raider Reloaded would grab the cash. Honestly, when it comes to brand launch, because this is all we can get. I wish I was wrong, but there seems to be a reason why the gameplay didn’t turn out to zero in today’s announcement. Hopefully, more details will be revealed as development progresses.


Revealed Tomb Raider Reloaded has launched a soft launch in some regions. People living in Thailand and Philippines can now check out the game. We knew that this game was going to be officially released in 2021, but now it’s clearly reaching a more important public testing phase, so the release date will be nearing. Sadly, Square Enix and Emerald City Games still didn’t provide a single screenshot, let alone a trailer with real gameplay. Enterprising YouTuber You uploaded a recorded gameplay video during Early Access. You can see it below.

As you can see, Tomb Raider Reloaded is an uninspired top-down shooter where you spin the roulette wheel at the end of the stage and move from room to room to collect in-game currency. So, if you wanted a quality Tomb Raider game, you don’t seem to be lucky.
