At the recent Ubisoft Forward, the worst kept secret of the event was the announcement of the remake of the long forgotten series, Prince of Persia.
Made in conjunction by Ubisoft Mumbai and Pune (both of which had only done co-development work so far), this will be a fully fledged remake in the current Assassin’s Creed engine, Anvill.
So this will include new animations, and combat akin to the AC series. They have also invited the original voice-overs to reprise their role as well, now motion-captured as well.
For this remake, the team had also consulted the series creator Jordan Mechner for feedback and it’s seems positive for now.
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time arrives in January 21 for PC via Uplay, PS4 and Xbox One. It’s also playable on the next-gen consoles via Backwards compatibility.
