She's the Prince's partner in the upcoming Prince of Persia - slated to release this week - and she has a lot more going for her than physical attractiveness. She'll be helpful and effective in both exploring and battle aspects, so make sure to make liberal use of her skills. Based on what we see in this trailer, she shouldn't be treated as a tag-along annoyance; she should be utilized and respected. Provided the AI is competent, Elika is more than capable of making the Prince's life a whole lot easier and in fact...your life may even be in her hands in some cases. Also, note the excellent use of cel shading visuals in this promising title; we love to see artistic creativity, and that's one of the reasons Prince of Persia is so prominent on our radar.
