Fans of the Tomb Raider game series will be able to bring the adventure along with them with an upcoming game from developer Square Enix Montréal.

Lara Croft Go is a turn-based puzzle game with a bright, stylized visual style. Square Enix announced it during its Electronic Entertainment Expo event earlier today, and you can get your first look in the trailer below.

“Working in close partnership with Crystal Dynamics, we are excited to tap into the nostalgic love we have for the ultimate female adventurer, Lara Croft, and bring you the Essence of Adventure!” said Square Enix Montréal’s head of studio Patrick Naud in a press release.

This is the second in Square’s Go series of mobile titles starring iconic video-game characters. The first, Hitman Go, is a strategy game staring Agent 47, the bald, red-tied assassin from developer IO Interactive’s puzzle-murderer franchise.

We don’t have an exact release date for Lara Croft Go yet, but it’ll be out later this year for iOS and Android.
