Ubisoft has announced that a new remastered version of the infamous side-scrolled Prince of Persia will be making its way to mobile platforms in the form of Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame.
Rebirth of the legendary action-platformer, with brand-new visuals and redesigned controls, Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame is set after the events of Prince of Persia Classic, continuing the saga of the wanderer who was born a Prince. Now he must embark on an epic journey in search of his past to redefine his future.
The new mobile title will take up the storyline of the original game released 10 years ago, allowing players to explore various levels in "visually-stunning 3D with intuitive controls designed for touchscreens."

"Among plenty of new features, players will now be able to choose between gesture-based touch controls or the classic virtual joystick. The combat system has also been improved with multiple enemies, tactical challenges and a brand new combo system."

The game will also utilise the normal mobile social aspects, allowing players to unlock achievements and ascend the leaderboards or to share scores with Facebook integration.

Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame will be available July 22 for both Android and iOS at a price of $2.99. Check out the trailer and screenshots below for a glimpse at the re-imagined world.

Hyping an announcement for the release date of a mobile game you've already shown months earlier is very ill-conceived.

The teasing post actually said "Get ready for some news about Prince of Persia, starting next week...", so maybe there's more to come. Agreed that is was never likely to be the announcement of a new game, given the timing, but Ubi has a huge film/tv production division now, so something like an animated TV series, or another movie announcement isn't outside the realm of possibility.
