Official artwork of Raziel from the Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver artwork

Crystal Dynamics, the studio that created the original Legacy of Kain games, recently released a simple but interesting tweet. Its just a high quality image for Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver alongside a quote from the intro: "I am Raziel, first-born of His lieutenants. I stood with Kain and my brethren at the dawn of the empire."

This could mean absolutely nothing, but if Crystal Dynamics simply wanted to celebrate one of its older series they could've done so without the unnecessary mystery, as they have done for Gex: Enter the Gecko for example. Given the circumstances, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that a lot of people have since then latched on to the idea that Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver is getting a proper remaster.

While I absolutely adore Legacy of Kain and its story, I'm not as easily convinced. Browsing through Crystal Dynamic's Twitter has revealed that they are highlighting a variety of their older games as a part of their 25th anniversary, so the odds of the Soul Reaver tweet being anything more than meets the eye is highly unlikely. I would genuinely be happy if I was wrong here, but given the rather lacking evidence I would recommend being cautiously optimistic at best, because otherwise you're just setting yourself up for disappointment.

Until more details pop up, by which I mean absolutely any details, allow me to leave you with Soul Reaver's intro. The visuals might not be anything amazing these days, but the voice acting is still one of the best I've ever seen... or rather heard. Enjoy!
