Unseen Lara Croft Short Found After Almost 20 Years

Made almost 20 years ago for the release of Tomb Raider 3, an old tape containing a never before seen Lara Croft short was only recently found (via. Polygon).

Tomb Raider: The Trilogy sees a video gamer questioned by two inquiring police detectives, about his alleged ‘girlfriend’, Lara Croft. His claims are put down to delusions – until the end, that is.

Intended to be shown at London’s Natural History Museum in 1998, the film has never seen the light of day, for reasons still unknown. Janey de Nordwall found the tape after unearthing some old records, and handed it over to Square Enix shortly after.

With this year marking twenty years since the first Tomb Raider debuted on October 25, 1996, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have claimed they’ve more in store to celebrate Lara’s twentieth year of adventure.
