Hey Ash!! I've absolutely read about this before. And everything from this link is VERY INTERESTINGLY FASCINATING for me to learn all of that.

One thing that's always confused me, how come TRAE used the exact same texture from Legend's backpack? Core and CD surely weren't sharing assets.

According to the interviews, Core made the model entirely themselves. They were given references to make it as close to the Legend model as possible, but I can easily believe they made the textures themselves. Legend's clothing textures are all painted by the looks of it, flat colour with brushes used for highlights and lowlights. It wouldn't be unachievable to replicate them from scratch.

They also had at least some of the same texture libraries to work from, as Legend and TRAE share a few.

It must be shared texture libraries, because the TRAE backpack texture isn't just a close approximation; it's exactly the same (apart from being toffee coloured).

I wouldn't be surprised if they just took it from a Legend screenshot TBH.

Our Anniversary is so much better than that.

Ikr? I love CDís Anniversary. <3

Coreís Anniversary looks somewhat out-dated for its time, including graphics, Laraís model and her animations after AoD; even for a PSP game. Iím not trying to be mean, btw. Idk, maybe they were going to polish things up before release? I still wonder how the game plays out.

Anyway, thereís huge effort poured into both games, and we canít trash both. Both were made to please Classic fans and celebrate TRís tenth anniversary...

To be fair, Core's TRAE was made primarily for PSP, on a lower budget, with a smaller team, and that is unfinished gameplay anyway.

Exactly. And isn't pretty much all leaked footage made up of unfinished gameplay from the PSP version anyway? I bet the actual finished version of the game, particularly the console and PC ports, would have looked better than the leaked footage anyway.
I'm not trashing Crystal's Anniversary, but it really is such a shame we never got this game tbh.
