Square Enix reveals stylised puzzler Lara Croft Go for mobile

Speaking on stage at its E3 conference, Square Enix has revealed Lara Croft Go - an upcoming mobile game in the vein of Hitman Go,which is currently in development at Square Enix Montreal. 

Hitman Go was sedate, turn-based take on the Hitman franchise, complete with a tabletop aesthetic.

Similarly, Lara Croft Go is a turn-based puzzler, with a new Monument Valley-esque art style.

Significantly, Hitman Go was a premium game, priced at $4.99, although whether or not Lara Croft Go will adopt the same pricing model is unclear.

Regardless, the fact that Go is being pursued as the go-to mobile brand for Square Enix franchises at least suggests that premium remains a going concern for the company.

And elsewhere at the conference, Kingdom Hearts: Unchained Chi was announced as a free-to-play mobile game.
