Prince of Persia

A new direction for the prince?

Assassin%26rsquo;s Creed is borrowing heavily from the Prince%26rsquo;s moves, but it won%26rsquo;t replace the full-blown next-gen platformer that the developers atUbisoft are already crafting. After the time-traveling trilogy played out in Sands of Time, Warrior Within and The Two Thrones, this new game won%26rsquo;t pick up where the Prince left off, but will be the beginning of an all-new saga.

A Ubisoft leak gave us concept art of the new game and the only details we have on this 360 and PS3 debut so far. However, after the last escapade (whichfeatured an increasingly dark narrative and art style), it looks like the series has at least made a spiritual return to the franchise%26rsquo;s Middle Eastern roots. The Prince is now rocking an armored gauntlet which we reckon will have some magical power or perhaps enable the fixing of customizable weapons to his fist. Then there%26rsquo;s the new love interest: not much to say here, but she does look somewhere in the region of rather foxy.
