Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown Has just been announced at Summer Game Fest. The game is yet another reboot of the iconic franchise. This time, the series has been reimagined as a side-scrolling, 2.5D action platformer.
This is a brand new game, not related to the perpetually delayed Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake. The Prince comes packed with a new design, and a greater focus on combat, but keeping some aspects of earlier iterations, such as the tight, obstacle-based platforming reminiscent of the original game and the original reboot.
Check out the new trailer from Summer Game Fest 2023 below:
Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown releases on January 18 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Ubisoft Store and Epic Games Store.
