Fans shocked as Prince of Persia is shown – and it’s not the game we thought it was


A REMAKE for Prince of Persia was announced in 2020, but we’ve seen very little of it since.

Developer Ubisoft announced in May, 2023 that it is still coming out, but that we won’t see footage anytime soon.

The new Prince is a short king.

The game has apparently been through development hell, and had to be remade almost from scratch pushing back its release date from 2021.

Despite not seeing anything from the Sands of Time Remake, Ubisoft were ready to show footage from a new Prince of Persia game.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is an all new entry to the series and will be completely different from The Sands of Time Remake.

Instead of a 3D action-adventure like the remake, it will be a 2D platformer like the original series of games.

We also saw some boss fights in the trailer, which will also take place in 2D.

The Prince of Persia has a whole new look in the new game, and is nothing like we’ve seen him before.

What is most exciting about the new game is that it is made by the same team at Ubisoft that worked on Rayman Legends.

Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends were part of a reboot of the Rayman series and were loved by fans.

Players were hoping for a third game, but the new series of Rayman games ended here.

With 2D platforming similar to these Rayman games, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown shows early promise.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown will be released on January 18, 2023.
