Eidos has revealed that the upcoming anniversary edition of Tomb Raider, inspired by the very first game in the series, will be released on PS2, PSP and PC in 2007.

And it's not just a straight-up remake either - while developer Crystal Dynamics has apparently been "inspired by" the original, Tomb Raider: Anniversary is described as a totally new adventure "faithfully preserving the elements which made the original Tomb Raider such a classic". So Lara's probably still in it, then.

The Internet's behind you! (Actually, it's probably best that you don't turn round.)

Eidos' Kathryn Clements expands on that. "We've taken all of the key moments from the original game and put them into the context of a brand new Tomb Raider adventure which will make fans of the franchise extremely happy but also attract a completely new audience," she says.

The game's using an updated version of the Tomb Raider: Legend engine, which propelled the game back to near-excellence earlier this year, and Eidos' Ian Livingstone reckons the result "pushes the boundaries of the current gaming consoles," calling Anniversary "a special celebration of Lara's reign as videogaming's leading lady".
