Kane & Lynch are your new Tomb Raiders

Lara Croft

Lara is getting some new friends...

I saw someone the other day asking “When did the Tomb Raider series become Lara Croft?”

…with a new announcement from Crystal Dynamics, they could soon be asking “When did the Tomb Raider series become Kane & Lynch?”

Apparently, nosey hacker MrNightmare was recently poking around the code for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and found code to include not only Kane & Lynch, but also Raziel and Kain from the Legacy of Kain series, too.

Since then, developers have confirmed that all four will be making appearances in the game, by way of two DLC packs they’re currently working on.

Now though, it’s up to you to decide which pair you’d like to see first, even if the Facebook poll seems more than a little one-sided at the moment. It seems nobody’s particularly fond of mercenaries and psychopaths.

Here’s how it’ll look – even though it’s not how it’ll sound:

(There’s also footage of the equivalent Kain & Raziel models, too)

Once you get over the obvious question – WHY? – this could actually be a bit of fun. I’m interested in seeing how K&L’s gaming style carries over to the acrobatic, athletic techniques of Ms Croft. Is it really just a mashup for mashup’s sake, however?
