To remember, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, a game released in 2018, had a post-credits scene with Lara Croft in her mansion. In the original version of the game before receiving patches, a letter sent by Natla was on the table in the living room. However, this card disappeared after updates were released for the game. Many players thought at the time that the trilogy of the saga could be expanded by recovering the character of Natla, although now it might seem that this was a clue to a possible remaster that ultimately did not come.
