New Lara Croft game launched exclusively for Xperia devices

Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light today launches exclusive to Xperia devices (including flagships: Xperia S, Xperia ion, Sony tablets and Xperia PLAY), with 30 days Android exclusivity.

 Today, the ultimate gaming heroine, Lara Croft, leaps onto Xperia smartphones as an Android exclusive treat.

Featuring an arcade style fixed camera view, the game has already been a console success and is now available across our Xperia smartphone devices, including Xperia S, Xperia Ion and Xperia PLAY!

Available for the first time on Android devices as part of a limited period exclusivity deal 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.

 This play-anywhere adventure sees Lara immersed in a world of fast-paced action that’s loaded with evil enemies, terrifying traps and perplexing puzzles. Guardian of Light follows Lara’s adventures through Mayan ruins as she joins an ancient tribesman named Totec to take down an evil threat – Lara and Totec must use their own set of unique skills to work together and fight through each level. LARA CROFT AND THE GUARDIAN OF LIGHT TM 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 once again. 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 XperiaTM 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 from today from the Google Play Store at a special launch-week only price of £0.99p/$1.29/1.19€, before returning to the usual price of £1.99/ $2.99/2.39€ from 23rd July 2012.
