Prince of Persia: The Shadow and Flame is set a decade after the original Prince of Persia game, which was released back in 1993. Ubisoft re-released a new 3D version of the game as Prince of Persia Classic in 2007.

The new game retains the 2D platforming elements of the original game, but with more combat-focused elements, such as multiple enemies and a combo system. Both virtual joystick and touch-based control schemes are available.

"The game’s experience can still be extended through social connectivity, allowing you to unlock achievements and ascend the leaderboards or share scores with Facebook integration," adds Ubisoft.

Earlier this year, Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat said that a new entry in the Prince of Persia series for consoles is currently on hold. "I think it is fair to say that, right now, Prince of Persia is being paused. But we said the same thing for some other brands that suddenly popped up because a team is willing to do it," said Mallat at the time.

Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame will be released on July 25 for £1.99.
