New Tomb Raider another reboot?

Horse-riding Lara tackles the Far East.

The next Tomb Raider will be an origin story in which a "young and inexperienced Lara Croft" investigates tombs in an island off the coast of Japan, according to a report.

Supposedly leaked details surfaced over the weekend and Kotaku has a few snippets about how Lara ends up shipwrecked and exploring mysterious underground tombs, apparently appearing on horseback at one point firing arrows at ghoulish adversaries.

However, both the original site 4Player Co-op and first responders Joystiq claim to have removed the imagery, and in the former's case the original information, due to legal threats.

Eidos has not responded to our request for comment so far, although to be fair we only sent it off 15 minutes ago. Clip clop.

Kotaku also points out that Eidos life president Ian Livingstone is on record saying the next Tomb Raider will "surprise a lot of people and reinvigorate the franchise".
