Prince of Persia announced
Ubi Soft Entertainment announced today that it is developing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Jordan Mechner is in charge of development, as he is the original creator of the series. The Sands of Time allows players to assume the role of prince, who is tricked into using a magic dagger to release the sands of time from an hourglass. Players then must recapture the sands of time to restore peace in the land.
"With Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Ubi Soft and Jordan Mechner are channeling their combined talents to breathe new life into the action adventure genre. They're creating rich characters, white-knuckle action, and a plot with more twists than the exotic, elaborate castle featured in the game," said Serge Hascoet, editor in chief at Ubi Soft Entertainment. "We're thrilled to move forward with the legendary Prince of Persia brand and eagerly await the launch of the next masterpiece from our world-famous Montreal studio."
