Update: Ubisoft has just released the official Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands launch trailer video, which is also added below- enjoy!
Ubisoft Producer Graeme Jennings has made available a Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands PS3 video today that depicts the title is going back to its PS2 roots.
To quote: With the game coming out so soon and everyone at Ubisoft excited to see what you guys thought of it, we wanted to get your opinions on the PlayStation.Blog and have the chance to answer some questions you guys might have for us.
To start off, let me explain a little about Forgotten Sands. The first thing I wanted to mention is to let you all know that this is not a movie based on the Sands of Time film.
In fact, we are bringing the prince back to the roots from the PlayStation 2 era by having this game take place in the seven year gap between Sands of Time and Warrior Within. We think you’ll notice a lot of reminiscent elements of the original trilogy in Forgotten Sands.
Some other things we’re extremely excited to talk about are the elemental powers and epic battles that take place n the game. Thanks to the Anvil Engine from Assassin’s Creed II we are able to pull off huge battles, from a boss that’s over 130 feet tall to fights with up to 50 enemies on the screen at once; the Prince definitely has his work cut out for him in this one.
We are also providing the Prince with new powers over the elements, abilities like being able to solidify water to climb on it, creating a trail of fire behind you, and blasting enemies away with a tornado to name a few.
Finally as an added bonus for PlayStation users, if players connect their PSP and PS3 together, they will unlock extra experience points to put towards upgrading the Prince’s arsenal. Thanks, hope you all enjoy the game!
