A Prince of Persia remake has been spotted at an online retailer.

Twitter user Ken Xyro was able to get a screenshot of two separate listings for "Prince of Persia Remake" - one for Switch and another for PS4 - on Guatemalan retailer Max. The listings suggest a November 2020 release - to note, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X are rumored to be launching mid-November. The listings have since been deleted, but reporter Jason Schreier has seemingly confirmed the information detailed therein. 

There's no telling exactly which Prince of Persia game is reportedly being remastered. It'd be totally out of left field for Ubisoft to remake the original trilogy that kicked off in 1989, but anything's possible. More likely, it's 2003's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, a soft reboot of the series, or judging from the logo in the listings, 2008's Prince of Persia.

That last we saw from the series was a For Honor event that happened earlier this year called Blades of Persia, and before that the 2018 mobile side-scroller, Prince of Persia: Escape. No doubt, a full-fat remake of one of the series' classic games would be welcome news to fans, especially if it really is releasing as early as November. Schreier didn't mention any caveats about the listings' release prediction, so it's very possible that's the case. It would certainly make for a compelling last-minute swan song for the PS4.

For what to play right now, here are the best games of 2020 so far.

I'm GamesRadar's green tea-fueled, late-night news hound. I'm perpetually in search of an MMO to recapture the feeling of playing Ultima Online in the early 2000s, and I'm still sorting out self-esteem issues from being relegated to second player duties growing up with two older brothers. On a related note, I'm irrationally defensive of Luigi and his mansion.
