The acrobatic Prince of Persia is making his way to Wii in Prince of Persia Rival Swords - a remake of PoP: The Two Thrones which released on multiple formats in 2005.
Of course, the Wii version will have remodelled controls that'll have you swinging and shaking the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to make the Prince jump, flip and fight his way through levels.
The first screens, which can be viewed below, come with small controller diagrams that reveal a few of the gameplay mechanics that make use of the movement sensitive Remote.
By the looks of it, you'll be using the Nunchuk analogue stick to control the Prince's movement, and swinging the Nunchuk to use his metallic Daggertail whip. The images also appear to show a surprise stealth kill executed by thrusting the Wii Remote downwards.
Prince of Persion Rival Swords is the latest in a growing list of Ubisoft remakes, including Blazing Angels, Far Cry Vengeance, Splinter Cell Double Agent and more, brought to Wii months or, in some cases, over a year after the original release.
Rival Swords will be released in March 2007, by which time the original game will have been out for almost a year and a half. Will the new controls make it worth playing again? We're not so sure.
E-mpired out - PEACE!
Those screens look nice
But i dont trust Ubisoft Wii screens anymore haha
I havnt really played Two Thornes so i might give it a spin for Wii
I'll play it, I loved the PoP series and it's not like I'll be so busy with Mario Galaxy or MP3 or SSBB at the time will I? It'll be a nice lil taste until Ubisoft makes that new Prince of Persia game for the Wii (referring to the brand new series).
I love you, I hate you. Will you marry me? I just want to kill you.
^ I was just thinking that too. I could have gotten the sequel for $20 when Big W were clearing out all their Cube stuff (that's when I got the first one) but they didn't have any left. I've never seen it (or the first) around anywhere else though.
aww mannnn the dark prince was a slag.
make it more like sands of time and ill be extatic
Sure...Il go to bed with you, but dont tell my girlfriend....She might tell my wife
I already beat Two Thrones three times last year. I have no need to shell out an extra fifty dollars for wiimote functionality.
Damnit Nintendo, why did you give Ubi the idea of Wiimaking games?
