I'd say we're overdue for a new Prince of Persia game, wouldn't you?
And maybe Ubisoft will unveil a new next-gen entry at E3 this year. A Tweet by Ubisoft Reflections engineer Drew James (as seen at NeoGAF ) drew plenty of attention yesterday, because it included the image you see here. Pretty clear, wouldn't you say?
Unfortunately, that Twitter account has since been deleted. They didn't just delete the Tweet, the entire account is gone…what's that say? More proof came from a French website that claimed a new 2D Prince of Persia was in development, and they were using the slick UbiArt framework engine for it. It's the same engine that was used to power the well-received Rayman Legends , remember?
The last full-fledged PoP entry arrived back in 2010; it was The Forgotten Sands , another good game in the series, but it had far too much emphasis on combat. These games were always more about puzzle-solving and platforming and that's what I want, damnit. Sands of Time is still my favorite.
