Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Trailer

Price of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time (the movie) hits theaters in May, based on Ubisoft’s game of the same name from 2003. So, without surprise a video game absolutely would have to come out around the same time, tied-in with the film directly or not.

Video games that tie-in with movies tend to be more tie-ins with movies than games and the vast majority of them come out and are not good. The game coming out alongside the film however, looks to not copy the film, but act as a sequel to the 2003 hit game, ignoring last year’s disappointing, strangely stylistic and cell-shaded “reboot.”

The new game, titled Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands was officially announced a few weeks back and is coming out alongside the movie in May. The premiere trailer for it was presented at today’s Spike TV VGAs and you can watch it below.

They’re definitely trying to make the Prince look like Jake Gyllenhaal from the Sands of Time movie trailer, but it looks like this cinematic was rushed for this event and I fear the game my be rushed to come out alongside the movie too.

I can’t wait to try it regardless, and I hope from the best from Ubisoft.

What did you think of the teaser trailer?

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands releases on the Xbox 360, PS3, PC and the handhelds May 10, 2010 and the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time feature film opens in theaters May 28, 2010.

    I love the Prince of Persia series, and I really didn’t mind the cell shaded re-boot for what it was. I am very excited to play this game but I too am concerned with the release date coming up really quickly, but then again, I don’t know how long this has been in production, so my worries might be for nothing. I love Ubisoft and everything they do, so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.

    Yes, compared with even the trailers for the Two Thrones game, there’s a definite shift in quality with this trailer. One hopes the gameplay is good enough, even if it’s just the same as before that’ll be good enough because for the most part, the gameplay in Two Thrones was damned good.

    That said, I’m still annoyed that they’re doing this. The Sands of time series was finished, they’d started a new one. Does this now mean we’re going to have to wait even longer to get a sequel to the new Prince of Persia series?

    Who knows anymore. I think they might have left the New Prince of Persia series. Most people didn’t enjoy the new game (although i happened to like it for what it was), so they probably went back to the first series to get back their fan base. Lets hope the combat from Sands of Time and Warrior within are still predominant. The combat was my only criticism of the newest PoP game.

    this almost feels like the movie, so this doesnt have anything to do with the film right? did they just borrow elemnts from it?

  • Joshi

    I quite liked the new game, didn’t even mind the combat once I’d gotten used to the combos, but I did miss the feeling of fighting off multiple enemies at once like the other games gave me.

    Shame really, the new PoP game was reviewed quite well from what I remember.

    So if The Forgotten Sands are a sequel to the Sands of Time game, then where does that leave Warrior Within and Two Thrones? Or is this game just going to be a continuation of the Sands of Time series?

    Also, if this does for some reason turn out to be a movie tie-in game, then why would they make a movie based on a game, then make a game out of the movie that is based on a game?

  • Joshi


    Yeah, that confused me as well.
