iOS & Android get Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame this 25th

By   /   3 years ago

It’s not going to be a console game or a new version of the previous Prince of Persia titles; The Shadow and the Flame is a remake of the 1993 classic Prince of Persia 2 that goes by the same title and the game will be made for the smart phone platforms Android and iOS –Kudos for the mobile gamers nevertheless.

The game will make way to all download platforms on a seemingly rushed release date of 25th July i.e. 20 days from now, which means a Sands of Time kowtowing version will be up and running in no time –at least in terms of the design and style.

Also this time the prince will be padding up against multiple enemies at fourteen different levels.

In order to match with the toughness introduced by the multiple enemy features, players will also be able to use a combination of weapons and powers leading to impressive combos.

That being said, it is still to be found out how the actual game will roll with a virtual joystick and/or gesture based controls.

You also get to boast about your victories to friends through in-game Facebook updates as well as GameCenter leaderboards and achievements for iOS users.

Ubisoft had announced a remake to the 20 year old version in April this year and it looks like the release date has been specifically timed to only 11 days after the original Prince of Persia concludes.

In the words of the publishers, it will let you “Continue the age old saga of a wanderer who was born a Prince! The wanderer returns, in search of his unknown past on a journey to redefine his future”.

At least that stands true for mobile phones since there has been no talk of the next installment since The Forgotten Sands came in 2010 –Ubisoft also gestured towards a halt to the series in the past.

Gameplay looks like the usual that is for mobiles, that is, 2D side-scrolling but it definitely promises to be better at that than the previous versions owing to better animations and 3D rendered characters –maybe the prince will look smarter?
