Disney and Bruckheimer put out a new trailer for The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time recently, and it’s posted below the break courtesy of D’toid.
It’s a longer version of the one shown during the Super Bowl, and towards the end it starts to descend into a bit of a chick flick with the “interaction” between the Prince and his lady friend. Seems par for the course with just about any movie these days – to make a movie releasable it has to have a love interest to draw the ladies in, we reckon.
Anyway, enough of our bitchy opinions – the movie does look like it will be a massive epic. Good for Bruckheimer. He needs the money you know. Poor fella.
It’s out May 28, with the new PoP: The Forgotten Sands game being released May 18 and 20 in the US and Europe. Wii users get the original game with the new one for free.

Level design director for PoP: The Forgotten Sands, Michael McIntyre, has said that just because the new title is going back to basics for the Prince as far as looks and gameplay go - doesn’t mean the cell-shaded Prince is a thing of the past.

Yesterday, when Ubisoft announced details for the Wii version of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, it was revealed that the title would land on the Nintendo system May 18 and 20 in the US and Europe, respectively.
We were sure this meant the PS3 and Xbox 360 version would hit the same day as well, but we asked Ubisoft just to be sure.

Empire has them. They feature Jake Gyllenhaal and pro-pouter Gemma Arterton looking serious and wet with their mouths slightly open.
Still. Should give a little variation to your daily “release”. The movie’s out next May.

Prince of Persia dev boss Ben Mattes has told a gathering at GDC that the no-death mechanic in last year’s franchise re-boot was a “mistake” in terms of projecting his own opinions on the game.
“I guess I made the mistake of projecting my own attitudes,” he said, as reported by MTV.
“I believed that, as a consumer base, the gaming industry had evolved to the point where they were punishing themselves for their failures.
“The idea with the Elika mechanic was [that] if you were a really good player, a single fall – when she had to pull you up – would be devastating thing because it ruined your perfect run.”
More through there. Thanks, EG.

Lego game rumors are always out and about, and today is no exception, with news emerging of a Prince of Persia line of toys based on the upcoming movie in 2010.
When Disney announced that Lego would be releasing the toys, it only made sense that gaming sites would be buzzing about the possibility of a game connection.
Joystiq’s quick to point out that Warner Bros owned Traveller’s Tales has used licenses from other movie studios in the past, so it could be a possibility in the future.
Keep your fingers crossed.
