The lights are on
Last week, the official Prince of Persia Facebook page teased that new information would be appearing this week. It appears that this teaser was in reference to a new mobile Prince of Persia game.
The game has the subtitle The Shadow and the Flame and should be releasing this summer. Ubisoft is teasing upcoming contests and sweepstakes in relation to the game. You can head here to learn more, and you can check out the trailer for the game below.
In the interest of clarification, Shadow and the Flame was actually revealed back in April, but last week's Facebook update seemed to imply that the the teased reveal was for something new. It's strange to tease a game that has already been announced, which is why we were initially excited to learn more.
Our TakeIt's disappointing to learn that what's next for Prince of Persia is a mobile title, but mostly because I let my imagination run wild when I read this story. There was no evidence necessarily hinting at the game being a new console Prince of Persia, or even a new Prince of Persia game for that matter, but a man can dream. A dream about an unnamed Prince defying the laws of physics to run alongside walls. I can always hold out hope that whatever this is, it might be something Prince of Persia-related.

Dang it, I want a real Prince of Persia game.
Just like that, the excitement of a new Prince of Persia game on consoles or PC just faded away. Go figure.
Figures. I really dislike the people that play these kinds of games. They're convincing developers that they should pump out rubbish like this instead of something worth playing.
Prince of Persia is going to be another buried series on the map of gaming.
I beat the original Shadow and the Flame so many times that this could be cool(to watch on YouTube) just for nostalgia's sake, but I really wanted a new 3rd person console game as well.
This is disappointing.
More mobile games? when it doesn't sell well, how about a real Prince of Persia?
This sucks :(
*** my life.
FFFUUUUUUUUUUUCKKKKKK MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE...........................................................IN THE ASSHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLE
The original "Prince of Persia 2" (if i am not mistaken) also has the subtitle "The Shadow and the Flame", therefore this must be a remake.
we should have known. if they had anything interesting to reveal it wouldve been shown at e3
And that's another good IP ruined by moving onto mobile. :(
That's really disappointing.
What a letdown.
Well I mean if it's meant for android and apple devices as an app, then you could probably get it on an OUYA android gaming console, right? Or is that not how it works? :-P
