Share And Comment

A few days ago we brought you the news that the Prince of Persia Facebook page was teasing a new game. Well, now it seems like we know the identity of the mystery game, and a few of you guys won’t be happy – it will be a mobile title.

Of course it is possible that work on a new console title in the series is also being worked on and will be announced soon, but for now Ubisoft is bringing us the news that Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame is heading to both your iOS and Android device very soon – July 25th in fact, for a bargain price of $2.99/£1.99.

Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame isn’t so much a reboot as a re-imagining. The game itself is actually based on the SNES conversion of the PC original, so it is kind of remake of a remake. This being a modern mobile game, support for both virtual joystick and gesture based controls are promised, as well as achievements and leaderboards. A new combo-based sword fighting system will also be used, in addition to tons of new weapons and some genuinely gorgeous graphics.

It is a little sad that it seems a fully fledged console or gaming handheld reboot of the series is a long way off, but for people who enjoy gaming on their iPad, iPhone or Android device there certainly seems to be a bit of a gaming renaissance going on at the moment, with titles like Deus Ex: The Fall and XCOM redefining what mobile gaming looks like. Check out the trailer below and let us know if you are excited for this title.
