Fresh announcement off the International Consumer Electronics Show floor from Microsoft, Crystal Dynamics, and Square Enix may bring us the hottest Limited Edition Xbox Wireless Controller yet. The long iconic video game heroine Lara Croft makes her first appearance on an official Custom Controller.
Crafted along with Artists from Crystal Dynamics, this controller showcases Lara’s well-known Climbing Axe and features Tourniquets acquired during her early days, as this title tells us of the origins of Lara Croft. A two-layer color finish combined with laser etching creates a realistic and textured appearance fans of the series are sure to love.
Topping of the customization is a customizable D-Pad, offering a switch between the traditional “plus sign” or a disc-like configuration to allow more control. As if the controller itself was not quite enough, included along with the item is a download code for a special, exclusive playable character known as “Scavenger Archer”.
This Limited Edition Controller is timed to release along said the net Tomb Raider title worldwide on the 5th of March, 2013 at a suggested retail price of $49.99. Being that this title is built from the ground up for the Xbox 360 Console and will feature DLC first on Xbox, this controller is the perfect compliment to all those Tomb Raider fans anticipating the title’s return to the platform.
