Tomb Raider: Underworld, First Wii Screen, Info
* the image is bit blurry—but the game really does look pretty solid, graphically
The latest issue of Nintendo Power has the first Wii screen and snippet about Tomb Raider: Underworld for the Wii.
“It’s Lara against the world as gaming’s first lady journeys to some of her most treacherous destinations yet in Tomb Raider: Underworld.”
‘Later this year, everyone’s favorite tomb-raiding heiress returns to the Wii with an all-new adventure that places the focus on Lady Croft’s sometimes-contentious relationship with her surroundings. In Tomb Raider: Underworld (developed by the franchise’s recent stewards at Crystal Dynamics), the terrain is a hostile and unpredictable adversary far more dangerous than any living creature. Platforming and puzzle-solving remain at the heart of the adventure, but the aim is to have everything feel more organic than in previous games. That includes how the environment affects Lara; our heroine will get dirty as she crawls through the mud then be rinsed clean as a rain shower passes by. Wii-specific features have yet to be revealed…”
I really like that part in bold in the game’s description! Lara Croft + mud + rain = pure gaming bliss ; ) Hopefully we’ll get more screens in the coming weeks.

This is fantastic! I have absolutely loved Anniversary; and now I am totally looking forward to seeing her get a little dirty! I know this will be a great addition to my Wii collection of games.
