How would you follow up the critically acclaimed Tomb Raider reboot? If your answer is “with a free-to-play iOS card game” then you’d be doing exactly what Square Enix is doing with Lara Croft: Reflections. The game features Lara collecting cards and fighting enemies with upgradeable weapons. Players can purchase upgrades through in-app offers. If the image above is accurate, Lara can fight herself which likely explains the “reflections” part of the title.
Lara Croft: Reflections just launched in Australia and New Zealand and will presumably be available in other territories at a later date if Square Enix follows the same publishing strategy that was used for Plants vs Zombies 2. EA and PopCap launched Plants vs Zombies 2 in the Australia and New Zealand iOS markets to test pricing and balance before launching in more populous regions.
