Ubisoft confirms new Prince of Persia game

Out on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and DS in late 2008

Prince of Persia will be ninja-flipping his way through a new game on 360, PS3 and PC in late 2008, Ubisoft confirmed moments ago.

Simply titled 'Prince of Persia', the new game is in development at Ubisoft's Montreal Studio - the same guys responsible for the previous three iterations.

The announcement is about as tight as can be with actual gameplay details - it basically didn't offer any - but it does promise that the new game will "rejuvenate the action-adventure genre in addition to introducing a brand-new illustrative art style," so that's alright.

We expect a man in baggy trousers, climbing, and sword fights to feature.

The plot will start afresh, apparently "opening a new chapter in the Prince of Persia universe".

Ubi also confirmed that it's working on a portable version "specifically designed for the Nintendo DS system, featuring an entirely new storyline and new characters."

"More details to be unveiled in the future," says Ubisoft, and we should hope so, too.
