Tomb Raider: Legend
Tomb Raider: Legend is the seventh game in the Tomb Raider franchise and the first to be developed by Crystal Dynamics (previous Tomb Raider games were developed by Core Design). Legend re-unites many of the developmental team that worked on the Legacy of Kain series and features many 'Easter Eggs' and other references to the Legacy of Kain series.
References to Legacy of Kain in Tomb Raider: Legend[edit | edit source]
- The Croft Manor (traditionally used as a 'training level') features a portrait of the Human Kain, first seen in Kain's Mausoleum in Legacy of Kain: Defiance.
- Upon game completion (or through the use of cheats) Lara Croft can wield the Soul Reaver in place of her usual pistols.
- Several of the symbols used in the Legacy of Kain series (including the Sound Glyph symbol and Kain's symbol) are seen subtly hidden throughout Legend - Daniel Cabuco's site even features Lara Croft in front of a Mural seen in the Fire Forge in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.
- Legend also features the concept of a legendary blade (in this case Excalibur) that is fractured and later re-assembled much like the Soul Reaver blade in Soul Reaver 2.
