Prince of Persia is coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 this Friday but what a lot of you don’t know is that a DS version has been in the works as well.
Judging from the video it looks as though it might be just what the doctor ordered for DS owners. Something that is engaging, fun and simple. One critisizm that I do have is that I don’t think that it was necessary to have the game run in 3D. Why not rather use 2D renders of the beautiful characters from the next-gen version and polish it all up with some gorgeous 2D backgrounds, just like they did in the old days.
Hopefully the controls will be simple and the use of the stylus will be smart and not just chucked in their for the sake of the touchscreen. I am just nitpicking though because at the end of the day, this looks like quite a fun little title to take with me on vacation for those rainy days.
