The original Prince of Persia 2 was released in a time where the internet wasn’t a mainstream media and was a majestic game of its time. Ubisoft may have moved away with the IP for the time being on the current generation of consoles but that doesn’t mean they have completely given up on the Prince and his adventures.
Ubisoft has just announced a HD remake for Prince of Persia 2 as Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame for mobile devices. It’s a complete remake of the original version and has significantly touched up the graphics, gameplay and of course functionality of the original.
While the trailer implies “Smartphone and Tablet” it is possible that Ubisoft could be targeting the iOS and Android tablet and smartphone market since those would be the most lucrative to address.
Fans of the series will be glad to replay a forgotten classic. And I am sure that any fans who are feeling up for a trip down memory lane or simply replay the newer version of their favorite game would dive in head first at the opportunity to buy and play this game as soon as it does release.
