Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Coming To Wii U, PS4 And Xbox One?

IGN has discovered that the next Tomb Raider game could be called Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and is headed to next generation platforms. The news was discovered when Amazon Italy put up a listing for the game, which has since been removed. We reported earlier that Square Enix is preparing to show off two games at the VGX Awards and that Thief and Tomb Raider are the two contenders. We should find out for sure on December 7th.

Thanks, Metroidvania and Tilmen

      1. The Wiiu IS a next gen console. Power doesn’t mean shit when defining generations of consoles.

        The DS was the same generation as PSP and the 3DS the same as the PS vita right?

        Gamecube, PS2, Xbox
        Wii, PS3, 360
        Wiiu , PS4 , Xbox one

        I really don’t see what’s so hard to understand about that. Wiiu might not be as powerful as the other two, but that’s because its focused on its controller which is indeed Technology that certainly could not of existed in the previous generation. Even the PS4 and Vita combined can’t come close to replicating what the Wiiu gamepad does.

        End of discussion.

      2. Yup. It’s not that they don’t understand. They choose not to because they have been sufficiently and successfully brainwashed,

      3. The generation is so much so than a release date or new controller.

        To me, the word “next-gen” means a noticeable leap in technical and graphical prowess from the last line of consoles. The Wii U, thus far at least, has not shown that leap and in many cases has even lagged behind 7/8 year old hardware in terms of graphical performance and system functionality. So for me and many other people Wii U is not a next-gen console. But that not necessarily a bad thing.

      5. Man , you´re just not convincing anyone. not even yourself.
        Like it or not, WiiU is next-gen, because it´s better than its predecessor and is currently on the market. That´s all that really matters.

      6. Well that may be what it means to YOU but that is not what it means nor has it ever meant that. Jeffrey Jordan is the next generation to Michael Jordan. He can’t even get into the NBA where as his father is the greatest of all time.

        Merriam-Webster Dictionary describes GENERATION as:

        ~ a type or class of objects usually developed from an earlier type.

        That’s all a generation is. I’ve played all three 8th gen consoles and none of them have a substantial graphics leap over the 7th generation because all of them basically give you high-end PC-level graphics of the previous generation at best and only a few games do that. Some so-called “next-gen” games actually look WORSE than the previous gen such as Madden 25 and NBA Live ’14. Knack doesn’t look any better than Super Mario Galaxy running on the Dolphin EMU. However Killzone:Shadowfall definitely looks better than the best on the 7th gen in terms of FPS games and even Lego: Marvel Heroes looks amazing. Does it look head and shoulders better than Super Mario 3D World? No. Does it LOOK better than Super Mario 3D World? I don’t think so. I think they are about the same.

        Whenever people compare Wii U games to XBOX One and PS4 they always choose the lowest common denominator versus the best that the other two have to offer. They compare games built from the ground up on PS4 and XBOX One hardware to Wii U games that were made from crappy 360 ports. They will say, “Look how much better the PS4 version of COD: Ghosts looks than the Wii U version.”

        The reason why Wii U multiplats look inferior to that of the PS4 and XBOX One is not because the Wii U is “underpowered” (which is the champion argument for those who’s intelligence is underpowered or resolve in researching the facts are) but is because it is a LOT faster, a LOT easier, and far LESS expensive to port a 360 build to the Wii U and use the power it has to make it look “better” than the 7th gen as the architecture of the Xenon and the Expresso CPU are similar. We won’t get to see a true 8th-gen multiplat comparison until Project C.A.R.S. arrives as that game was built from the ground up on Wii U hardware.

        But we live in an age that people feel if they choose to believe something that makes it fact. So despite the fact that the Wii U CPU while physically is a PowerPC is built to run like a Power7 (which has 3.2GHZ per core) and the GPGPU has 32MB of eDRAM which largely has not even been touched by developers because they do not have the time or resources to build separate engines from scratch that are Wii U only. This is a MAJOR mistake by Nintendo no doubt. 3rd parties should have gotten Wii U dev kits a LONG before they did so that they would have more than enough time to develop a separate engine for Wii U games. Or Nintendo should have just chosen architecture similar to what Sony and Microsoft are using.

        The point is that Nintendo has a billion problems right now. Iwata needs to be fired, Fils-Aime needs to be fired. Miyamoto needs to retire. Power level of the Wii U is not an issue. It is sufficiently powerful enough anything that you are going to see on the PS4 and XBOX One whether people want to except or it. The problem is we likely will never see that because the Goof Troop doesn’t think photo-realism is necessary sometimes, or that people like to play games with mature-themes. Doesn’t have to be sex, blood, profanity, and violence to be mature. Just themes that grown folks understand. Kids have plenty of kid-only type games on the Wii U. How many adult-only exclusive 1st party games does the Wii U have? ZombiU? That’s about it.

      7. First off you know nothing about how technology works because if you did you’d know why some multiplats on the Wii U don’t run as good as they do on last gen consoles. The Xbox 360 & PS3 have multi-threaded in order processors while the Wii U uses an single-threaded out of order processor, note: all last gen multiplats uses multi-threaded in order processed gaming engines so those engines won’t function that well on the Wii U regardless because of how the architecture is designed. Why else do you think there are no multiplats being ported from last gen consoles to the PS4 & Xbox One? Easy…they wouldn’t run well either because they also use single-threaded out of order processors and besides multiplats sell better on Sony & Microsoft consoles so building out of order processed gaming engines would be worth the risk as oppose to the Wii U and btw the Wii U has shown that leap in games like Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, & ” X “. Name me one platform game that’s on the Xbox 360 & PS3 that’s looks better graphically than Super Mario 3D World. I really doubt you can

      8. Play 3D world and you will see a pretty large leap from last gen in visuals. It really demonstrates what the Wiiu can do when it is utilized properly. You using lazy ports as a means of determining the Wiiu’s generation is quite stupid don’t you think?

        I mean CoD Ghosts is 720p 60FPS on Xbox one So I guess that console isn’t next gen either ?

        I’m sorry but graphics is not the only factor that defines generational leaps. As I was saying the Wiiu gamepad and its wireless streaming tech, which is tech just like CPU’s, GPU’s and RAM are, weren’t possible in the previous generation. It’s Next gen technology whether you disagree or not.

        The 3DS and PS vita are current generation handhelds, they are todays current handhelds just as 1 + 1 = 2 , The 3DS isn’t last gen because its weaker :S ,,,, Same applies to Wiiu, it’s a new console a current console.

      9. Wii U is a huge leap, from Wii.
        Much bigger leap than ps3 to ps4.
        If you only compare power, then these next generation consoles are already old, when they cant do as much as decent gaming PC.

      13. Nailed it. There´s really no point in discussing if the WiiU is next-gen or not. It doesn´t have nothing to do with specs, actually, but simply with lines do products and WiiU is on the current line of new devices.

      14. I know the Wii U is next generation – all I said was that OTHER people don’t always consider the Wii U under the “next gen” tag, so something shouldn’t be assumed unless outright said.

        Although if Wii U was mentioned in the initial (now removed listing), then cool.

  2. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, if real, is most likely the Tomb Raider game that came out this year with improved graphics, all DLC included, and a collectible of some sort ( ie – art book, soundtrack). I don’t know why you get the idea it’s “the next Tomb Raider game”.

  3. OK FIRST OF ALL I HOPE SO. I GOT THE GAME 3 MONTHS AGO AND ITS ONE OF THE BEST GAMES I HAVE EVER PLAYED IN MY LIFE. AND I DISLIKE EVERY SINGLE TR GAME.

    SECOND IF WE GET THE WII U VERSION WE’LL PROBABLY GET PS3/360 PORT I DONT THINK WE WILL GET PS4/ONE VERSION.

    THIRD I DONT WANT TO GET EXCITED WE ALL KNOW WHAT NEXT GEN MEANS. FOR US WII U IS NEXT GET BUT FOR DEVS, STUDIOS AND PRESS NEXT GEN IS PS4/ONE.

  6. I’m really hoping this game comes to the Wii U. I bought it for 360 to a friend of mine and played it together with her. It was a great game and I’d like to own it myself. I don’t have any Sony or Microsoft-consoles though. Would make sense to make it for Wii U AND ps4/xbone. Then they’ll cover pretty much everyone. But I guess it’s easier to port it only to ps4/xbone… I’m not getting my hopes up for this – but if they release it on WiiU it’s a day one buy.
