Speaking to CVG at Ubidays last week, Prince of Persia producer Ben Mattes said that the upcoming franchise reboot will hark back to the greatness of Sands of Time. Alienation’s off the menu, apparently.

“You’ve seen some dark stuff because that’s kind of what we want to show you at the start, but more than anything before this is the spiritual successor to the Sands of Time,” he said.

“There’s tons of platforming and there’s that mystical theme that was so critical in Sands of Time. If anything I think we’ll see the fans that lapsed after Sands of Time come back.”

Hoopla. We don’t know what else to say.
