In celebration of our furry pets around the world during National Dog Day earlier this week, Square Enix released a new ‘trailer’ for Shadow of the Cute Raider for audiences everywhere. The ‘trailer’ is a recreation of the latest ‘End of the Beginning’ trailer for the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider game.

In addition to releasing this new ‘trailer’ Square Enix is also celebrating with an “ultra-exclusive, custom Xbox One X console.” Residents in the US can bid on the custom Shadow of the Tomb Raider Xbox One X, signed by Lara Croft’s performance and voice artist, Camilla Luddington.

All proceeds from these auctions will go to The Best Friends Animal Society, which is “a leading national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in American shelters.”

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the final chapter of Crystal Dynamic’s reboot trilogy. The latest entry will follow Lara Croft as she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse. The game will release on September 14, 2018 for Xbox One X, Playstation 4, and PC.

I find the trailer recreation with dogs a great hook to get more people invested in the upcoming entry. What do you think of the announcements? Let us know in the comments below!
