Last week, Eidos introduced us to
their new Tomb Raider promotional
. This week, Lara Legend
has a new voice: actress Keeley Hawes of the popular TV series MI-5.
Spokesperson Matt Gorman says Hawes has "the right balance of aristocracy and attitude" for the video game
vixen. Personally, I'm getting confused with all these iterations of Lara Croft. Between the games and its various
models/voices, the comic book continuity, and Ms. Jolie's interpretation, Lara's been overexposed just a bit (and not
in the good way).
Hopefully, Tomb Raider Legend
won't disappoint. It's scheduled for an April 7
launch on Xbox, PS2, and PC, with 360 and PSP versions to be released at a later date.
