A big well done to Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix as Tomb Raider and Lara Croft have been honored in the latest Guinness World Records.
They have set the record for ‘Most Magazine Covers for a Videogame Character’ and ‘Largest Gathering Of People Dressed As Lara Croft’ alongside a one-of-a-kind feature in the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition next year.
Lara was awarded a World Record previously. Lara was awarded with six records in the Guinness World Records 2010 Gamers Edition, including the Most Successful Video Game Heroine, Most Recognizable Female Character in a Video Game, Most Detailed Video Game Character, Most Official Real Life Stand-Ins, Highest Grossing Computer Game Spin-off, and Most Successful Live-Action Transfer. Stephen Daultrey, Editor, Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition stated:
Lara Croft is one of the most vital and iconic characters in gaming, with a powerful legacy and a string of great games under her belt. It’s fantastic to see so many cosplayers celebrate her in this unique way. Along with her covers record, these are already two of my favorite new GWR titles of the year. I look forward to seeing them in next year’s Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition annual.
