It seems even more stupid than that: (Per the app's description)
"Languages: German, French, English"

EDIT: It's not a japanese release, it's a worldwide one! Now out in New Zealand and it should be out everywhere tomorrow!

Is this a knock off? Graphics don't look very impressive for a Tomb Raider game.

I'll bet that invisible-grid-based movement system will translate just lovely to a touchscreen device...

Wow, was not expecting this! This will be mine! Now let's hope they release 2 and 3... I never got to finish two because it killed my Playstation after I crashed the snowmobile, the system literally crashed and whn it came back up my controller and memory card ports wouldn't work!

Wow, a full port of the original for just $.99? Think I'll have to grab this. Hope the controls work well. I only played it in PC.

And, yeah, the graphics actually do look better.
