Square Enix, the publisher of Square Enix interactive entertainment products in the Americas, today announced the launch of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light on select Android devices. As part of a limited exclusivity period with Sony, the critically acclaimed Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light launches today for flagship devices, Xperia S and Xperia ion, as well as gaming smartphone, Xperia PLAY.
In addition, to celebrate the Android launch, Square Enix is offering all of its mobile versions of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light at a discounted price of up to 50% off until July 22, 2012.
This mobile adventure sees Lara immersed in a world of fast-paced action that’s loaded with evil enemies, terrifying traps and perplexing puzzles. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light features unlockable weapons, upgrades and an isometric camera giving gamers greater detail.
Join Lara as she ventures deep into the jungles of Central America in search of the Mirror of Smoke, a powerful artifact from a lost age. Whoever wields this relic holds the future of mankind in their hands, with the power to rid the world of light.
With the Mirror now in the clutches of Xolotl, the God of Darkness, Lara and Totec, the Guardian of the Mirror, have until sunrise to defeat him or risk plunging the world into an age of darkness. Take-on Xolotl and his armies of creatures with an all-new intuitive and accessible touch-screen control system – along with specially optimized controls on Xperia PLAY’s unique gamepad – letting you explore the world and solve puzzles at your own pace.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is available today from the Google Play Store at a special launch-week only price of $1.29, before returning to the usual price of $2.99 on July 23, 2012.
