Ubi Soft today announced a licensing agreement with Eidos for Tomb Raider on Game Boy ® Advance. With the new two-year agreement, Ubi Soft acquires exclusive worldwide development and publishing rights for 'Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Prophecy' for the Game Boy Advance. The game will be released this Christmas.

"Lara Croft is one of the strongest and most attractive personalities in the video game world", said Alain Corre, Ubi Soft Entertainment's Vice-President for Europe, Asia Pacific and South America. "I have full confidence in our creation teams' ability to produce one of the best action games available for the Game Boy ® Advance".

"With Ubi Soft's expertise in developing successful Game Boy ® Advance games, we are confident that Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Prophecy will maintain the high standards people have come to expect from a Tomb Raider game," said Mike McGarvey, CEO of Eidos Interactive.

The game will remain faithful to the spirit that has made previous game versions - as well as the movie - a worldwide success. Since the first Tomb Raider game was released in 1996, the series has gone on to sell more than 28 million copies worldwide.
