imagePrince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands may have a surprise for Prince of Persia fans, the remake of the original game as a bonus.


Gameloft developed Prince of Persia: Classic, which updated the original game Sands of Time style graphics. This title was released as a downloadable game for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in 2007 and 2008, respectively.


And it appears we’ll see Prince of Persia: Classic again in May when Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands comes out. Ubisoft’s latest Prince of Persia game was rated by the British Board of Film Classification which mentions Prince of Persia: Classic as one of the components.

    Ubisoft is really starting to worry me. At one time I considered them one of the top tier developers in the world, and rightly so having created Rayman, Beyond Good and Evil, Assassins Creed, Splinter Cell. Now though they seem to be a bit too money hungry, and recent announcements like “We plan to release major series every 12 to 18 months” is not a statement I wanted to hear.

    Each of their series looks to be in a bit of trouble, Splinter Cell looks like an action heavy game, with more in common with the Bourne movies then Metal Gear. Assassins Creed 1 was a fantastic stealth game that had a few growing pains but overall was one of my favs this gen. The sequel however removed much of the stealth in favor of a more action heavy design and now with all the DLC and a sequel announced already Im beginning to worry.

    Rayman is dead, and likely to only be used as a cheap cash in for their shovelware DS/Wii titles. Then you have Prince of Persia, which if you asked me to judge the series based on the last game they put out I would say it was looking pretty safe,but Im not so sure now. This movie tie in could really ruin things, especially after the way they touted Avatar and it was terrible. The problem I see is they are digging up a story line thats long dead, and since the series already had a new (and in my opinion) more interesting story and Prince, why? To me the answer is simple, because they can recycle an old story, character designs, locations and other assets for a quick cash in. Something the series is not known for. BG&E 2 remains as the only bright spot, so like I said Im starting to worry.
