Ubisoft is bringing over Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones to the Wii under a new name, Prince of Persia: Rival Swords. Besides having some of the new chariot racing levels Rival Swords adds in Wii control. It looks like from these pictures you can throw the Daggertail by shaking the nunchuck and then pressing the Z button. Seems smart, but what about the free form combat system that the new Prince of Persia games are famous for? Are moves going to be mapped to different actions or are they going to be done just by swinging the remote rapidly? That’s not quite clear yet. Prince of Persia is known for having tight controls so I’m skeptical that a direct translation of the console game is the best way to handle the series. At the very least we can hope for realistic chariot whipping movements, that ought to make the racing levels fun.
