Earlier this week, Ubisoft teased that some Prince of Persia news was inbound, and I got all giddy, hoping we’d get news on a new entry in the series (possibly for the next-gen consoles). Sadly that wasn’t the case, but it’s not all bad news, as Ubisoft has dropped more information and details on their upcoming HD remake for PoP2 for the mobile platforms. You’ll be able to play it on just about every mobile device this month, on July 25th. Read on for the full details via their press release:
Today, Ubisoft® announced that the legendary Prince of Persia series will come back on mobile devices with Prince of Persia® The Shadow and the Flame on July 25th on iOS and Android devices, through Google Play and Amazon, at a price of $2.99.
Rebirth of the legendary action-platformer, with brand-new visuals and redesigned controls, Prince of Persia® The Shadow and the Flame is set after the events of Prince of Persia Classic, continuing the saga of the wanderer who was born a Prince. Now he must embark on an epic journey in search of his past to redefine his future.
Following the storyline of the original game released 10 years ago, it will allow players to explore various levels in visually-stunning 3D with intuitive controls designed for touchscreens. Among plenty of new features, players will now be able to choose between gesture-based touch controls or the classic virtual joystick. The combat system has also been improved with multiple enemies, tactical challenges and a brand new combo system.
The game’s experience can still be extended through social connectivity, allowing to unlock achievements and ascend the leaderboards or to share scores with Facebook integration.
