Last week, there was quite a bit of controversy over the removal of some cheesecake posters of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider I-III Remastered on Nintendo Switch. Fans were offended by the perceived censoring of content in the compilation, especially given that the content was there at purchase and seemed to suddenly have been deemed too spicy for primetime, without any input from people who already paid for the game. Below is an image of the posters that were removed:

This controversy came hot on the heels of Crystal Dynamics declaring this remake of the first three Tomb Raider games to be “harmful” owing to what it claimed to be racist and prejudiced content. There are many who don’t share this opinion, but so far, at least, the narrative coming from Crystal Dynamics and other game studios is one that doesn’t leave room for healthy debate or conversation with fans.

There is at least a small glimmer of hope in this debate over censorship, however, as Aspyr, the actual developer of the Remastered trilogy, has put out a statement via its X account stating that the posters will be restored in the next update to the game:

In a bit of a curveball to the narrative that the posters were removed out of a desire to censor, Aspyr alleges that the removal was entirely unintentional. Regardless of the reason behind the removal, fans will hopefully at least feel a modicum of pleasure in seeing the posters eventually returned to the game.
