More details are said to be revealed during Ubisoft Forward event on 11 June.

  • Ubisoft has revealed an all-new Prince of Persia game during the Summer Game Fest 2023, titled The Last Crown.
  • Prince of Persia: The Last Crown is a 2D Platformer which is being created by the developers of Raymam Legends.

Summer Game Fest 2023 started its show with an amazing and surprising reveal. Ubisoft has revealed a brand new Prince of Persia game during the Summer Game Fest 2023. The remake of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time is still in the works, but Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is a completely new title that seems more in line with Prince’s original 2D beginnings.

The new Prince of Persia is being developed by Ubisoft Montpelliar, the same company that worked on Rayman Legends. Ubisoft has released a trailer which displayed several glimpses of the Last Crowns’ challenges including the boss’ encounter with Jahandar the Manticore.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown Announced at Summer Game Fest

The gameplay displayed an excellent blend of flashy fighting and quick platforming – considerably faster than the meticulous platforming that inspired it. Ubisoft has also confirmed that the soundtrack for The Lost Crown will be composed by Mentrix, an Iranian composer. Gareth Coker, the composer most recognised for his work on Ori and the Blind Forest and Ori and the Will of the Wisps, joins them.

The protagonist, who has traditionally been referred to simply as the Prince, resembles his Sands of Time iteration, but otherwise appears to be a completely new character named Sargon in a group of Immortals.

They are ordered to rescue Prince Ghassan from the cursed Mount Qaf, but they become entangled in a wider plan that threatens the world’s balance. According to Ubisoft, the tale is inspired by Persian mythology and will feature a Metroidvania framework, allowing you to earn new time powers to progressively unlock new sections and solve puzzles in Mount Qaf.

It’s been 13 long years since fans played a new Prince of Persia game, and many fans have stated their greatest hopes for a possible future entry in the series over that time. While many fans wished for a return to the 3D action-platformer that The Sands of Time provided, a sizable portion of the fanbase wished for a true return to form, dating all the way back to the first game in the series, and Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown appears to fulfill both of those wishes.

The game has nothing to do with the postponed remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, which is being worked on by Ubisoft Montreal following work by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai. Since its announcement in September 2020, the remake has been troubled by delays, and in May 2023, Ubisoft revealed that the game would not debut at June’s Summer Game Fest since it was “still in an early stage.”

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is scheduled to be released on 18 January 2024 on multiple platforms including Switch, PlayStation 5 and 4, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One, Amazon Luna, and PC via the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. Ubisoft plans to unveil more about the game as part of next week’s Ubisoft Forward event on 11 June.
