- Today Producer Joel Vignola
has shared a video reveal that testifies Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, which arrives on May 18, 2010, is built specifically for Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: Let me start off by explaining a few points we at Ubisoft
Quebec City are exceptionally proud of. To begin with, Forgotten Sands is not a game based on the upcoming Sands of Time movie; we created our own storyline for the game.
Second of all, this IS a unique game built from the ground up specifically for the PSP, this is not a port from any other system. The adventure is all new, the location is new, and the Prince's powers are all new as well. The only way to experience this adventure is on the PSP.
Some of the new powers include the ability to speed up and slow down objects within the game; being able to solidify sand lets the prince create new paths, while speeding up traps can be used against enemies. You can give yourself some breathing room by slowing down traps or enemies, or increase the challenge by playing everything at full speed.
We're really interested to see what you guys have to say after playing the game and can't wait to answer your questions, even if they're not related directly to the game! We look forward to hearing what you've got on your mind, and hope you all enjoy the game as much as us.
Oh yeah, an added bonus for owners of the PSP and PS3: when you connect both together, you can unlock the original Sands of Time costume for the Prince to wear in the PSP version of Forgotten Sands.
