Ubisoft announces Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame coming soon to mobile

It looks like Android could very well be getting another Prince of Persia game in the near future. According to an announcement Ubisoft made yesterday, the company has been working on a new Prince of Persia game for mobile platforms called Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame.

While the game announcement doesn’t go into specifics as to which platforms this new Prince of Persia game would be arriving on, it is a safe bet that it will be for both iOS and Android (since it is the same Ubisoft division that made Prince of Persia Classic for both platforms) although you can probably expect the Android version to be released after the iOS version.

This game will continue on telling the story of the original trilogy but this isn’t just a port or anything like that. The controls, graphics and gameplay have all been redesigned and modernized for play on mobile devices and to look better. There will also be to different control schemes you can use, the standard on-screen controls or a new tap-to-move control system.

In total there will be 15 different levels to play through and players will be able to choose to use elemental powers as well as three different types of attacks. There will also be over 25 weapons with special abilities for you to use.

Right now there is no word on exact pricing or release date for Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame. You can check out the full press release below which also includes details on the recent Rayman Jungle Run update as well.

SAN FRANCISCO – APRIL 11, 2013 – Today, Ubisoft® announced the continuation of its massively popular Prince of Persia® franchise with the introduction of Prince of Persia® The Shadow and The Flame, as well as a brand new free update for popular mobile title Rayman Jungle Run featuring 20 new levels.

Prince of Persia The Shadow and The Flame continues the incredible storytelling of the original trilogy while incorporating redesigned controls, graphics and gameplay with the convenience of a mobile device. Fans of the original Prince of Persia series will be thrilled to discover five beautifully rendered environments, each with their own unique mood and landscape. Prince of Persia The Shadow and The Flame was developed by Ubisoft Pune, the same studio that developed Prince of Persia® Classic HD for Android and iOS released in 2012.

Featuring a variety of gameplay mechanics that contributed to the success of the beloved series, Prince of Persia The Shadow and The Flame allows players a choice of controls: virtual sticks or tap-to-move. As players progress through 15 different levels, they can choose to use elemental powers, three types of attacks and over 25 weapons with special abilities to defeat brand-new foes in the extensive Prince of Persia universe that fans love so dearly. Available soon for mobile devices, Prince of Persia The Shadow and The Flame continues the age-old saga of a wanderer, born a prince, who returns in search of his unknown past to redefine his future.

Rayman’s journey through the jungle continues with 20 new levels in a free update for iOS and Android; with the Windows 8 version coming soon. The update features two worlds: Pirate Ship and Giant Plant.

The Pirate Ship levels will challenge players as they guide Rayman over tumbling rocks and away from fiery cannon balls. Meanwhile Daisy, the classic boss from Rayman Origins, makes an appearance in the new Giant Plant world. Rayman will have to run faster than ever to escape the spiky grip of prickly monsters. Two unlockable levels of the Livid Dead are also added for players who dare to compete in the ultimate challenge of speed and accuracy.

Rayman Jungle Run features all of the celebrated qualities and highlights that can be expected from the Rayman franchise such as beautiful HD graphics optimized by Retina Display, a captivating original music soundtrack and smooth touch-based controls, adapted for mobile devices.
