Prince Of Persia Returning To Its Roots With New Scans

Ubisoft's Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands will be expanding the Prince Of Persia universe this year, and some new scans showcase what the platformer is all about by showing the Prince himself in action.

Spanish magazine Micromania has retrieved some new images of the upcoming Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

Check them out below: (Nintendo DS, PC, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)

Oh, cant wait indeed.

Not too sure about the screens though.. the odd pic shops some poor character modelling but generally not too bad.

Looks better than the last POP. Cell shading FTL

Alright, this looks nice. It has the look of the original trilogy from last generation, but with much improved visuals of course. I have enjoyed all of the Prince of Persia games and I am really looking forward to this new chapter.

I dunno about this game. I'm not expecting much with it but instead a way for Ubi to cash grab with the movie release. It makes no sense to just abandon the 2008 PoP game then suddenly go back to the Sands of Time story.

Basically what I'm saying is I don't think this will be a "real" prince of Persia game if you all kind of understand what I'm saying. I mean it's even coming out on like, every damn system.

I'm probably willing to lay down my bet right now that the game will suck. I mean, do you all see those visuals?

@Sm0k3y_Bac0n, better than the last game? I hope you know which are actually in-game shots and which are likely pre-rendered cutscenes.


top right. Wtf? Like they arent even trying at all. Hopefully it isnt Ubisoft Montreal behind this but if I recall, it's Ubisoft Quebec which should be another eye opener.

Let me know when we get a sequel to the 2008 PoP game then I'll care.

The only thing you need to know is that the new game is following the story of The sands of time

I liked the sands of time. Not sure what to think about the promised large number of enemies (largest number of enemies in a prince of persia game)or the new, unannounced "nature based" magic skills.

Hope that the platforming won't be taking too much of a back seat in the game.

i didnt even like the last pop, my 14yr younger sister finished that game, thats how lame it was. I also hated the over artsy look. To me, they should have continued on with the successful style from Sands of Time, Worrior Within and Two Thrones. Instead they took out all the best bits and put them in Assassins Creed (for which I enjoyed AC 1 & 2).

This ones gonna be a flop as they will obviously try to milk this based on the upcoming movie, so ubi put slightly more effort next time.

A video game based on a movie based on a video game

sinncross  +   1876d ago
The movie is based on SOT.. this game is a sequel to it and a prequel to WW.
Voozi  +   1876d ago
Ah I see, I thought the game was being based off the movie since they were pretty much releasing at the same time so confusion ensued.

Well then, now I'm interested, thank you good sir for informing me lol. Have a bubble.

PoP's "roots"....
...are in 2D side scrolling/platforming. I don't see them TRULY returning to the franchise "roots". :o
Whitefox789  +   1876d ago
Which roots?
Sands of Time roots? or NES/GEN roots?
Rocket Sauce  +   1876d ago
Gimme a sequel to the cel-shaded Prince of Persia, dammit!

Ubisoft sinks already...

I liked the graphics of the previous PoP, the gameplay left a lot to be desired though.. combat was clunky and boring and the platforming was fun at times but much too repetitive. I'll keep my eye on this, but I'm not sure what to think. I have no idea what the timeline is of the PoP franchise, it seems all over the place!
Midgard228  +   1876d ago
thank god iit went back to old way, i luv the warrior within and two thrones, tho warrior within was better IMO, and guys im talkin bout gameplay.

i think the last prince game sucked, thhe combat was repetitive, it was optional and u only fought 1v1 and it was way to easy. i mean i wud try to pull off a combo and my combo wud insta-kill them cuz they got to a wall or edge of a cliff so prince jus kills him instead of continuing combo.

so glad its bak to the old way

the last game was a repeatfest.

Ubisoft has nice concepts with their games, but the repeatfests ruin games.

Assasins creed 1- repeatfest
Farcry2- repeatfest
prince of persia- repeatfest.

id say ubisoft needs to get its act together.
