Game lovers in the Arab region can look forward to a remodeled version of the popular “Tomb Raider” game which is set to be released in March 2013, according to 7days.
For the first time in action-adventure gaming history the “Tomb Raider” game will see full Arab localization meaning anyone who purchases the game in the Middle East and selects the Arabic option will see a dramatic change in the Lara Croft character.
Instead of resembling the looks and voice of the original aristocratic well-to-do English lady the Lara Croft character will resemble the features and vocals of Lebanese actress Nadine Njeim, who has recently been presenting the Middle Eastern version of hit TV show “The Voice” aired on MBC.
The Lebanese actress said at the game’s unveiling on Wednesday morning that “it was amazing to see yourself acting out a character that has such as legacy in the international community.”
The game will see the Croft character going back to her roots as an inquisitive archaeology graduate lost on a tropical island.
She will have to face the difficulty of killing for the first time making the character more human and vulnerable say the designers.
Publishers Square Enix have no doubt that the game is just as dominant a force in the gaming charts as before.
