What's happening gamers? Lately, there have been numerous pictures circling gaming websites which seems like a next installment in the Prince of Persia franchise, possibly by Climax. Now, I have followed The Prince of Persia series since my childhood, and rejoiced with it's return with The Sands of Time when I was in my teen years.
The character you see in the picture is a man with a curved blade and sleeveless white vest in the left side, and on the right side he wears a sleeveless armor and his left arm is glowing as he holds sand. Could this be a new Sands of Time story, or is it the same guy?
Ubisoft had also told IGN recently that the Prince of Persia franchise was "paused", but perhaps the developer will bring back the game to life on E3 coming this June. A Ubisoft representative responded to IGN's inquiries about a Climax connection stating "there is no new information to share in regard to Prince of Persia." Climax Studios did not respond.
More updates on this new revelation coming soon. Hopefully we'll here more in two more months at E3 2013. And stay tuned for my retrospective on The Rise and Fall of Capcom, still to come are Part 2 of Mega Man and it's spinoffs, Street Fighter, Breath of Fire, Resident Evil, and the later years.
Lastly, I want to pay all my respects and send all my prayers to the families and friends of the victims of today's tragedy in Boston. May God give them peace.
God Bless and Play Hard Gamers!
