Video game industry icon and virtual adventurer Lara Croft has been entered into the Guinness Book of World Records as the “Most Successful Human Video Game Heroine.”

The notice coincided with the April 7 UK release of Eidos and Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider: Legend for multiple platforms, including the Xbox 360. The game will ship in North America on April 11.

“It is a mark of the phenomenal success of the Tomb Raider series that 10 years after the first game release, Lara Croft is more popular now than ever. It is fitting that she has been recognized for this remarkable achievement,” said Ian Livingstone, the creative director accredited with creating Lara in 1996. “The new game Tomb Raider: Legend utilizes the very latest capabilities in high definition gaming and Lara looks more stunning than ever before.”

The Tomb Raider franchise, currently valued at over $1 billion, has sold over 28 million games worldwide.
