The Tomb Raider video game franchise became famous when it was released on consoles back in the ’90s. From that point onward, the series became a worldwide phenomenon. Well in order to celebrate the new live action movie starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, Dave & Buster’s has revealed an new arcade machine of Tomb Raider.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this is the first time that the Tomb Raider series has never had its own arcade machine. Usually arcades games are reserved for fighting and driving games like the Tekken series, Initial D and several others.
Dave and Buster’s posted the following about the new arcade machine: “Tomb Raider is coming to theaters and to Dave & Buster’s! More action-packed than ever, become the Tomb Raider right here with the new Tomb Raider Arcade game – you can’t play it anywhere else! Your quest for fun continues – play 4 of our most adventurous games for FREE*, including Tomb Raider. Fuel up with bold flavors and then get back to the action. Play Four Games free including our new Tomb Raider arcade game – Only at Dave & Buster’s. See Tomb Raider in theaters March 16th.”
You can also see what the arcade machine looks like in the trailer posted down below. It’s a short advertisement, but you can see somewhat of what the game will include. It’s best to visit your local Dave and Buster’s location to get a better idea of what the game is all about.
The new film is based on the 2013 reboot. Alicia Vikander is the second movie actress to play the role of Lara Croft as Angelina Jolie played the character first in the early ’00s.
