Lara Croft won’t let your measly Xbox 360s and PlayStation 3s contain her. She’s heading to next-gen consoles so that you can buy her game one more time.

Square Enix is “rebuilding” the game, according to a trailer that debuted during Spike’s VGX show. It will release in January 2014 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The publisher is calling this the “Definitive Edition.”

The original Tomb Raider debuted in 1996. Publisher Eidos Interactive released the game, which is an early example of a successful third-person action game on the original PlayStation console. Square Enix acquired Eidos and the Tomb Raider property in 2009.

The most recent Tomb Raider title launched earlier this year for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. It featured a rebooted Lara Croft learning skills on the fly that would eventually make her into the world-class adventurer we knew from the previous titles. Tomb Raider: Legend developer Crystal Dynamics produced the game, which fans and critics both praised for its exciting action sequences and interesting story.
