With little more than a month to go before its early December release, the first PSP Prince of Persia game has gotten a final name, rating, and price. Today, Ubisoft announced that the game would be titled Prince of Persia Revelations, that it would be rated M for Mature, and that it would retail for $49.99. Some retailers, including EB Games, still list the game with a working title and an MSRP of $39.99.
Revelations' rating should not come as a surprise, given the fact that it is based on Prince of Persia: Warrior Within. The second game in the POP series for current-generation consoles was more violent than its predecessor, Sands of Time (though it may be tame compared to its darker-looking sequel, The Two Thrones). Both Warrior Within and Revelations follow the now-embittered prince as "he embarks upon a path of carnage and mystery to defy his preordained death," according to Ubisoft. Standing in the way of the prince's destiny is the Dahaka, "an immortal incarnation of Fate seeking divine retribution."
Luckily, Revelations will have Warrior Within's free-form fighting system, which lets players create their own fighting styles using environments as weapons. The PSP version will introduce all-new combos for melee attacks, time-shifting powers, and a projectile attack system for ranged combat. It will also feature puzzles, redesigned levels, and bonus content not featured in Warrior Within.
