Lara Croft: Reflections Is A Card Game Exclusive To Australia And NZ

Back in March of this year, Square Enix trademarked the name Lara Croft: Reflections. Some speculated it would be a 3DS or PlayStation Vita game. Nope, it's a free-to-play card battler.

Lara Croft: Reflections is in testing right now in Austraila and New Zealand (suck it, America) for you to put it through its paces, much like the fine folks at TouchGameplay do in the video above.

Instead of shooting, jumping and skulking about, the mobile game sees Lara collecting cards in order to... oh god, I am so tired of collecting cards to do things. Here's the description from iTunes.

PLAY AS LARA CROFT IN AN EPIC CARD BATTLE ADVENTURE!
Adventure through mysterious lost worlds, collect valuable artifacts, battle enemies and other game players, and combine new weapons to increase your power!
FEATURES

    Oh god...

    You know, I'm kinda with Pat from The Two Best Friends Play on his opinion about Square Enix. That he can't wait until they go bankrupt and all IPs are sold off to other companies who can do a better job with them.

    To be honest the current Japanese big thing is mobile trading card games. Having been to Japan recently their market is huge and the their profit is extreme.

    SE probably trying to earn big by using their IP to appeal the international fan base.
