Prince of Persia rewinds, tries again on PSP


We haven't heard much about the upcoming PSP version of Prince of Persia: Rival Swords. Based on The Two Thrones, the PSP version promises exclusive content, featured in this new video. The footage looks somewhat disappointing, especially graphically: the PSP can certainly do better than this! Considering how the Prince's last foray on Sony's platform was met with general disdain from critics, this newest video doesn't inspire too much confidence.

Rival Swords hits the PSP later this month.

New Prince of Persia announced

The angsty Prince is back in a new game entitled Prince of Persia: Rival Swords. Like Revelations before it, Rival Swords is essentially an enhanced port of a PoP console game. Rival Swords takes the gameplay from last year's critically acclaimed The Two Thrones and adds new levels and multiplayer modes. For example, you will be able to race through levels against a friend, or play through new chariot levels and re-enact your favorite scene from Ben-Hur. The game will hit Holiday 2006 in Europe, and then hit American shores in 2007.

Should we get excited? I'm a bit doubtful on this one. Revelations met critical disapproval due to its high number of glitches and ridiculous loading times, and the same developer (Pipeworks Software) is working on this port. They might be able to work out the bugs this time around, but with so many original games heading to the system soon, a port can't really grab my attention.

Prince of Persia reveals itself on the PSP

Speaking of requests for more games, Ubisoft unofficially declares today to be "Prince of Persia Revelations: Buy me now!" day as the title finally graces store shelves with its sword-swinging, baggy pants-wearing ode to gymastics and brooding royalty. The game, which is an adaptation (read: port) of  2004's Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, once again has the titular Prince hacking and slashing his way through hordes of supernatural riffraff, all in an effort to prove that he's the best at tearing you a new one while doing a full gainer off your backside. His award for all his efforts: An M-rating from the ESRB. Yay!

Prince of Persia Revelations will retail for $49.99 and is available in stores now. No word on whether the game will run on older firmware, though.
