Prince of Persia gets new coronation date

Ubisoft nails down the release of its latest acrobatic action adventure, The Two Thrones.


The Prince of Persia finally has a date with the throne. Two of them, in fact. Ubisoft's third installment in its resurrection of the long-running action series, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones, is set to release in North America December 1. The game will be available for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, and PC.

Continuing the tale of The Sands of Time and The Warrior Within, The Two Thrones finds the Prince's path to ruling his kingdom impeded by his increasingly split personality. A "dark prince" spirit is slowly overtaking the acrobatic hero. In addition to the Prince's fragmented psyche, The Two Thrones offers chariot combat, more urban outdoor environments, and a second playable character.

Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones is rated M for Mature and will retail for $49.99. Customers who preorder the Xbox or PS2 version of the game from EB Games, GameStop, or Game Crazy will receive the Prince of Persia trilogy soundtrack, which includes a code to unlock a hidden sword in The Two Thrones.
