Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light Heading To Browsers Via Google Chrome

Some good news for the Tomb Raider franchise (finally, right?) has trickled out of San Francisco’s ongoing Google I/O developer conference today with the news that Lara Croft will hit Google Chrome this fall.

Rather than a slimmed-down, web-friendly port, Square Enix will be bringing the full console version of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light to the slick browser, making it their second game that has made the jump to the Google Web Store.

Previously, Mini Ninjas successfully made the company’s first debut for Google’s web application.

As a digital distributor, Google Chrome’s gaming section is currently hosting a rather diverse gaming section. Some of their most popular titles in the growing category generally run the gamut of easily-schilled, popular mobile ports such as Angry Birds, Bejeweled, Cut The Rope, Monster Dash, and Doodle Jump.

But the acquisition of a game like Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is a high-profile get for Google, especially given that it’s a well-recieved property from a triple-A publisher like Square Enix. Arguably the most complex game in the network besides that would be Supergiant Games’ stellar action adventure title Bastion, which debuted in Google Chrome in December 2011.
