Shadow of the Cute Raider Gets Adorable on National Dog Day

There’s a new Tomb Raider on the way and it’s probably going to be a solid entry in the series.  The new Lara has had plenty of press given to her redesign in the five years since she appeared, but today Crystal Dynamics revealed a new take on the classic hero that redefines her in an unexpectedly wonderful new style.  Shadow of the Cute Raider recasts the reveal trailer with Lara as a very good doggo on a quest to rescue a puppy from the claws of Incan-cat baddies.  On the one hand it’s adorable beyond all possible belief, but on the other- I really want to play this!  Sadly, Legend of the Cute Raider will probably never get the triple-A treatment of the main series, but maybe in a purer, happier dimension a whole lot of people are looking forward to doggy stealth and trickery in a short couple of weeks.

Today is National Dog Day.  If you don’t have a doggy of your own to hug and spoil there’s probably a local shelter nearby that can help fill the canine-shaped hole in your life.  If that’s not an option then a donation goes a long way towards keeping the lights on and helping the critters find a new forever-home.
