Prince of Persia Remake seems to be coming sometime soon. At least according to MAX, a Guatemalan retailer. Just today the store has listed two versions of ‘Prince of Persia Remake‘ on their online page. The PlayStation 4 version is priced at $69.92 while the Nintendo Switch one is at $81.75. An Xbox One release for Prince of Persia Remake is nowhere to be found.
“This doesn’t look real,” you say? Well, a well-known video game industry journalist and insider Jason Schreier even retweeted the leak on Twitter, saying, “Video game retailers sure love leaking Ubisoft’s surprise announcements.”. I think his confirmation pretty much suggested that this Prince of Persia remake listing is indeed legit.
Although a release is somewhat confirmed, there’s still no clue what the story of this remake will be about. Is it going to be a retelling of The Sands of Time, another attempt to make a brand new story like Prince of Persia 2008, or even a remake of the original 1989 title? No one knows for now.
The last time Ubisoft made a console Prince of Persia game was back on May 18, 2010, releasing Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands to all available platforms; Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, even Nintendo DS and PSP. Later, they revived the series for mobile, releasing the remake of 1993 MS-DOS classic The Shadow and the Flame for iOS and Android in 2013 and a runner game in 2018 titled Prince of Persia: Escape. Then Ubisoft made a VR escape room game and ran a Prince of Persia crossover event inside For Honor before letting the franchise rest again.
Hopefully, after they are done with this, another Rayman game is coming as well. Excited for this new remake? What other Ubisoft remakes are you hoping for? Share your thoughts about this news with us in the comments below.
