Very Hands On Demo Of LARA CROFT Available At NYCC

New York Comic Con is rapidly approaching, with only a week till thousands of comic book fans descend upon the city. However Square Enix will also be there showing off their highly anticipated  reinterpretation of Lara CroftGone are the days of Lara clad in short shorts- this is a significantly more brutal, rugged take on the classic female adventurer. Lara Croft will be available to play at NYCC but there will also be an archery range, emphasising the hunting elements of the game.

In addition to being able to get hands-on time with the game, New York Comic Con attendees will have the opportunity to test their archery skills at the TOMB RAIDER Archery Experience. Each participant will let three arrows fly at their own individual TOMB RAIDER themed shooting target which they can then take as a memory of the event. Those lucky archers who hit a bull-eye will receive a limited edition TOMB RAIDER lithograph. The Archery Experience is being supervised by the New Jersey School of Archery.

Whether this will be an effective publicity stunt or just  a meeting ground for Hawkeye cosplayers will remain a mystery until next week but it is certainly going to contribute to the massive hype that is growing around this game. Are you looking forward to this new take on Lara Croft? Share your comments below. [KOTAKU]
