Prince of Persia Looking For ANOTHER Face-Lift, Why the Series Just Needs to Die.

VG Republic Writes: Prince of Persia is one of those games that has such a tried and true format that it never really seems to die. The franchise that has brought you seven titles to major home consoles may be looking to change the game once again. According to a post from NeoGAF, photos were found on the Climax Studio website and if it isn’t Prince of Persia then it is a seemly copy-cat like game that will be exactly the same but just a different title. You can take a peak below at the images that found their way around the internet today, but there is no mistaking that style of game that fits only that of the Prince of Persia lineage. (Dev, Prince of Persia 5)

Idk I loved the first 2 two games. Never tried the remakes and really don't want to . Maybe this time the series will go back to its roots?

Based on the images, it looks amazing already. I hope this is true.

I loved 2008 Prince of Persia. The art style and the music were awesome. Too bad they ruined it with DLC ending which I heard it even ended with a cliffhanger. They could have improved upon that one a lot and have a masterpiece.

So we just write it off because it looks like Prince of Persia? That is mature and thoughtful

It's definitely Prince of Persia.

Take a look at the sword in the screenshots...


It's identical, right down to the smallest detail, to the sword from The Forgotten Sands...

He's also wearing a very similar outfit to the one he wears in The Two Thrones: http://upload.wikimedia.org...

Forgotten sands was an interquel- between The Sands of Time and Warrior Within, so perhaps this is an interquel between Warrior Within and The Two Thrones??

Prince of Persia doesn't need to go away, it's been in hiatus for a few years now. It needs a proper reboot. Kinda like how Tomb Raider got a reboot.

I just want the series to be rebooted as a downloadable 2.5D platformer. More in-line with the originals, but still keeping some bits of modern design too.

It's NOT Prince of Persia.

Also, I'd love a sequel to the 2008 POP. :( I loved it!

I feel bad the way this series has gone. Sands of Time is possibly one of my favorite games of all time. Ubisoft has abandoned this series ever since Assassins Creed became their cash cow. Such a shame, and we'll most likely never see a remake to the 2008 PoP which I thoroughly enjoyed (although not as much as Sands of Time).

I don't know about you guys but I thought the first Assassin's Creed game was terrible whereas the first Sands of Time game was amazing. It was weird seeing them transition from making PoP games to Assassins Creed games, seeing as the first AC game was horrific.

I guess all that matters to these publishers is money, which is something I can't blame them for.

It's amazing how crappy game devs got going from the ps2 era to the hd era. It's like everyone's greed came out fully and great game making took a backseat in favor of screwing over their customers and maximizing their profits.

I still remember playing the original in pc when i was a kid.. DOS operative system.. Such a great game.

I dont belive it has to die, i mean i dont mind to get new games in the same franchises as long as they are good.

Im one of the few that dont care if theres 30 halo games, gran tourismos, zeldas (and any other franchise that is good) as long as they are good, and people like them, bring them on.

Dont get me wrong, i love new ips, but i dont think that an old ip has to die just to give birth a new one, better bring them both.

They need to give AC a rest and make PoP their main flagship title. Maybe then, the new PoP games will be as good as the old ones.

Sands of Time and Warrior Within (except it's soundtrack) were incredible games, they should just return to that imagining.

Then again it'd probably be to similar to Assassin's Creed.

Whoa whoa whoa just saw the screens. That looks awesome. Definitely a Prince of Persia game.
