Prince of Persia gets coronation date

Ubisoft's acrobatic adventure franchise lands in US stores December 2, at European retailers December 4.


The Prince of Persia movie may have been pushed to 2010, but his highness' loyal subjects won't have to wait quite so long for another glimpse of the acrobatic monarch-in-waiting.

Ubisoft today announced a worldwide early-December shipping date for the game on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The publisher will ship Prince of Persia to North American retailers on December 2, followed by Europe, the Middle East, and Africa on December 4. In the UK, gamers will have to wait slightly longer, with the game going out December 5.

The game marks a new beginning for the franchise, which hasn't had a major installment released since 2005's Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones wrapped up the Sands of Time trilogy. The series revamp features a new Prince with a new art style, as well as new gameplay mechanics. Players will work their way through the game with the aid of Elika, an acrobatic match for the Prince who helps him fight a corrupting force sweeping the land.
