The TrueGameHeadz crew had a chance to check out UBISOFT’s new Prince of Persia game at their 2008 NYC preview line-up event. I think it’s safe to say the game will be triple A wholesome goodness! Check out the nearly 10 minutes worth of video of the game in action. The Prince is back!

New Prince of Persia for NDS

July 23, 2008

So here’s the story, Facing imminent danger, the Prince flees to a deserted kingdom that seemingly offers sanctuary. Already touched by the evil Corruption, a dark substance that physically contaminates the land and the skies, the kingdom is filled with adventure, challenge and intrigue. As the Prince seeks a way to fight the spreading Corruption destroying the land, he encounters a partially infected creature that promises salvation. But is the creature truly an ally or merely an enemy in disguise? It seems this perilous alliance may be the only way for the Prince to face the forces of darkness and save the Persian kingdom from the Corruption once and for all.

The game is played with the stylus so pulling off attacks and acrobats will be fast and easy. You’ll travel across 50+ stages accompanied by a new character called “Magus”. The two of you will work together to complete puzzles and advance through the game. So this is a new direction Ubisoft is going with the franchise I just hope it gets more fans instead of losing old ones.

Jake Gyllenhaal is the Prince of Persia!

It’s official…the prince has been found and he aint’ no persian! Jake Gyllenhaal of Donnie Darko, Broke Back mountain fame has been cast in the lead role in the new Prince of Persia: Sands of time movie dropping next summer. Directed by the king of summer blockbuster explosions Jerry Bruckheimer and  Disney, PoP:sands of time will tell the story of prince Dastan as he battles an evil vizher from controlling the sands of time (which allows the user to travel back in time..duh!). The plot will be loosely based off the game of the same name, so you can expect to see creatures, signature traps, magic and some cool special fx’s. I can say that im pretty amped to see how this turns out especially being a fan of ol’ Bruckheimers past spectacles. And for those who worry, series creator Jordan Mechner has been heavly envolved in the script. So im sure he won’t let this movie end up utter crap…right? Hopefuly this will be a good videogame to movie translation and finally do justice to videogame movie in general. One thing’s for sure, i know Bruckheimer will take us on a wild ride thru persia!
