Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands Details Arrive

BOOM widget 363048 Following the recent announcement of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and the more recent debut trailer, publisher Ubisoft has offered up fresh details on the action game.

Coming to PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS and PSP, Forgotten Sands takes place between Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2003) and Warrior Within (2004), detailing the titular Prince's efforts to save his brother's kingdom from destruction.

Ubisoft promises "epic wow moments," noting that our Prince will "discover that great power often comes with a great cost" as he copes with a "new storyline, the introduction of new characters, and new powers over nature and time."

All versions of the game are due out in May 2010--the same month as the franchises' first theatrical outing--with Ubisoft noting that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will offer "a different gaming experience" than Wii, Nintendo DS and PSP. BOOM video 3140
