The Forgotten Sands Swirl Onto Shelves On May 18
We assumed the game would launch alongside the movie, but we all know what happens when you make assumptions...
Eh, we could've done it, anyway. Today, according to 1Up, Ubisoft has confirmed that Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands will release on May 18, one week before the blockbuster film, "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," hits theaters. We've known for a while that Ubisoft would try to place the new game sequel as closely as possible to the movie, so May 18 hardly comes as a surprise. And although the promising action flick starring Jake Gyllenhaal could be cool, we're far more excited for The Forgotten Sands, a sequel to last generation's first PoP adventure, The Sands of Time. So, yeah, we've got the movie based on the first game coming out a week after the sequel to that first game comes to us in interactive form...understand now? The Forgotten Sands loses the cel-shaded look of the previous series installment and shifts back to fighting multiple foes at once, but we still get a partner. It isn't Elika, but Razia, who should be of great help in battle. For our part, there are few games that rank higher on the priority list in 2010.
If you haven't yet played Prince of Persia, which released back in 2008, we strongly recommend it. It's well worth your time and would be good preparation for the next title.
