Let's begin with a round of applause for the decision to return to the Sands of Time storyline. That's right, the upcoming release titled Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands wont be a sequel to the last Prince of Persia game, but rather a return to the familiar and beloved PoP universe from the last generation of consoles.
Ubisoft announced that Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands™ video game is in development and is scheduled to be released May 2010 for consoles and handhelds. This new instalment in the critically-acclaimed franchise marks the return to the Prince of Persia® Sands of Time storyline. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands™ will feature many of the fan-favorite elements from the original series as well as new gameplay innovations that gamers have come to expect from the Prince of Persia brand.
Those of you planning to tune in to Spike TV's Video Game Awards on December 12th will be able to see the world premiere of the trailer for this game. No doubt it'll be available online shortly thereafter.
I, for one, will be keeping my fingers crossed that this title succeeds where last years release failed, in bringing the awesomeness of the last series to current generation consoles!
