Ubisoft has decided to offer us a big treat today and released a hefty pack of Prince of Persia screenshots, to the delight of the fans of the series. Although I must admit that when I first heard that PoP is turning into a cartoon I was really, really disappointed, I was really surprised to feel an intense joy looking at the newly released screenshots.

The images look great, the environments are simply breathtaking, and the overall feeling you get after looking at them is one of endless fun. Yes, it appears that indeed that’s what we’re going to be gifted with by Ubisoft in the new Prince of Persia game: a unique, fun, brand new experience. And I truly hope it works now.

The new Prince of Persia game will be set in a land rooted in ancient Persian mythology, with the Prince himself caught in an epic battle between the primal forces of light and darkness: the God of Light, Ormazd versus his brother Ahriman, the destructive God of Darkness. For the first time we will have to partner with a deadly companion, Elika, and heal the world from the evil Corruption.
