Prince of Persia


Prince of Persia

The game is set in ancient Persia. While the sultan is fighting a war in a foreign land, his vizier Jaffar, a wizard, seizes power. His only obstacle to the throne is the Sultan's daughter (although the game never specifically mentions how). Jaffar locks her in a tower and orders her to become his wife, or she would die within 60 minutes (extended to 120 minutes in the Super NES version, which has longer and harder levels). The game's unnamed protagonist, whom the Princess loves, is thrown prisoner into the palace dungeons. In order to free her, he must escape the dungeons, get to the palace tower and defeat Jaffar before time runs out. But in addition to guards, various traps and dungeons, the protagonist is further hindered by his own doppelgänger, an apparition of his own self that is conjured out of a magic mirror.

Prince of Persia: the remake of the Sands of Time is bogged down a little more

After a first criticizable presentation and a consequent postponement, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake now has everything of a project in distress. Indeed, the announcement of the day is clearly not the most reassuring.

"The prince is back!"  This is what Ubisoft proudly announced in September 2020 during the broadcast of the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake trailer . Alas, it will soon be two years since the game has been seen. But, last October, the French publisher finally gave a (wide) release window ranging from April 1 , 2022 to March 31, 2023 . Unfortunately, you may have to be even more patient.

A prince who travels

In a press release, Ubisoft said that the development of the remake would now be carried out by its branch located in Montreal. The studios installed in Pune and Mumbai (India) were probably not able to offer a satisfactory copy to the French firm. The new team will take the time necessary to consolidate all the work done so far and complete the game as soon as possible.

However, Ubisoft warns that this Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will only arrive "  when it's ready  ". So, if no new postponement has been mentioned, we can probably imagine that the game will not be released for several months.
