Ubisoft has announced a new Prince of Persia game for mobile devices.

No Caption Provided

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.

UBI should be going back to game developing. Carelessly spending their expenditures perfecting the dead Prince of Persia franchise wont aid in any nomination for GCA

Great.. so back in 1993 they knew at least how to create a feel of being on the rooftops of a city.. 20 years later, with all the tech in their hands they are still able to screw up the cam. check: 1993 "cam" is "looking" uuup.. actually a clever use of front elements. it fuels epic and character read well . 2013: cam is looking dooown... feet are not connecting, all the background makes the character almost invisible. Call back the guy from 1993 they might have a thing or two to teach you..

Is this game gonna have the proper ending attached or are you still doing the PoP thing?

The trilogy was the best (I'd say WW>SoT>TTT), PoP was awesome (esp the art direction) except for the fighting mechanics....and that ending.

Mobile game? Social bullshit? **** you, Ubisoft. There's nothing ''social'' about wanting to play a fucking single-player, story-driven Prince of Persia.

WW is the best in the franchise. A masterpiece, minus the glitches. I had hoped to see more of that style..

@DoctorOmar1991 the future is MOBILE MUAHUAHUAHAUAHHA $$$$$$$...easier and cheaper to produce, and bigger consumer targets. that's why every game in this new generation will have some stupid gimmick for the tablets.

After reading the title and jumping from chair from all the excitement, and then seeing "for mobile" part this is all I have to say:

http://i.qkme.me/3ozhve.jpg.

On the other hand this enoucrages me to power up the old 486 and replaying PoP and PoP The Shadow and the Flame.

Watching the trailer, it looks like this is a remake of the original Prince of Persia sequel released in 1993 (also called "Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame").

As someone who played PoP2 back in the day, the gameplay and locales displayed in the trailer look very similar to the 1993 release. (With upgraded graphics and animations, of course.)

Bring back Prince of Persia...Warrior Within style. It was unique, different and kinda stood out among the other ones. The M+ rating looked good on it!

@TheDarkSpot I hate the WW. That's a black eye in the franchise in my book. That and PoP 3D.
I love the original, Sands of Time and the cell shaded reboot.

@X-RS @decebal most ppl have never seen the true ending. They have seen only the alternative ending. that's a huge mistake from UBI to make it that way.

So, I played the very first PRINCE OF PERSIA game. I have a certain level of nostalgia...

... but that just looks lame.

Hey Ubisoft, I think it's about time you pulled another Sands of Time out of the proverbial hat. We liked the trilogy and even the two games (four, counting exclusives) after that, but we're ready for you to stop wasting this incredible franchise on the casual market and re-imagine it for the next gen like you did 10 years ago.

Looks crappy. Just like that Assassin's Creed game I was fooled into buying for iOS 4 years ago. Waste of everything.

"share scores with Facebook integration"....Does anyone actually care about this kind of stuff? Does anyone actually want to be bothered with what your friend scored in Prince of Persia: The Mobile Game?

At least there is some hope that Prince Of Persia is perhaps coming to next-gen consoles. Let's hope that's the case!
