TO HANG UP HER BOOTS?

[ December 22nd 2007 ]
Playstation Magazine has hinted that real-life
Adebibe may be retiring her trademark pistols
and bringing to an end her tenure as Eidos'
global spokeswoman for Tomb
offers readers a tantalising teaser for January's
issue: "In the meantime our mouse hands must return
to scouring Google Image Search's outer reaches
in a bid to discover - and then offer to manage
- the next real-life Lara before Eidos does."
Playstation Magazine also promises to showcase
Lara Croft in Tomb
Raider Underworld on the Playstation 3 in
the January issue, having "a man in Mexico
for the world exclusive unveiling" which
took place end of November.
Adebibe was anointed as Lara Croft in 2005 to
help promote Tomb
Raider Legend and Tomb
Raider Anniversary. The British model followed
in the footsteps of a string of beauties including
de Jong, Lucy
Rocce and Vanessa
camp are out for Christmas, which means the official
announcement of Tomb
Raider Underworld and any confirmation of
a new Lara Croft model isn't now expected until
the New Year.
meantime, please join the good folks from Tomb
Raider Forums who are wildly speculating on
who - if anyone - they'd like to see replace Karima
Adebibe as the new real-life Lara Croft model.
