The new Prince of Persia game has been announced and early screens released showing off the Prince’s new look, which has an amazing painted-to-life vibe. Note the icy baditude and facial scars that indicate he was assaulted with a cookie cutter at an early age. We can’t imagine this prince cracking wise as he defies ancient deathtraps. Is the Prince once more afflicted with generic rage? It remains to be seen.
Early indications are that the sands of time are no longer present, instead of the dagger of time the Prince has gained a giant metal claw, less useful, less subtle, but ultimately giant and claw-like.
There are early hints that there will be some sort of light world/dark world mechanic at play (not exactly original but hey), expect spectacular acrobatics, one on one combat and a GIANT METAL CLAW later this year.
The first trailer has somersaulted onto the interweb and is here. Go forth and view.
