First Prince of Persia In-game Trailer Released

The first Prince of Persia in-game trailer was today released by publisher Ubisoft. The two minute video features a glimpse of the series' new illustrative art style and duel-focused combat system.

"We wanted [Prince of Persia] to feel like a playable illustration," said producer Ben Mattes in a recent Shacknews interview. "We want it to feel like the concept art has been directly brought to life in an interactive way in this game so you have that sensation almost as if you were playing an illustration."

Prince of Persia is in development at Ubisoft Montreal. The game is planned for a holiday release on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
