POP Wii detailed, dated

Rival Swords clash in March.

Ubisoft has confirmed that March 2007 will see the release of Prince of Persia: Rival Swords for Nintendo Wii.

Like the PSP title of the same name, it's based on last year's The Two Thrones, but this time Ubi's lining up some changes specific to the Wii's remote and nunchuk control scheme.

It's not hard to imagine one used for analogue movement and the other for slashing with the dagger - something the text of Ubi's announcement alludes to.

We've also got some early screenshots for you to check out, with accompanying Wii remote graphics to illustrate how things work. A bit.

For those of you who didn't play Two Thrones, it was a bit of a return to form after the dreadful second game in the renewed POP series, and saw the prince trying to retake Babylon as he came to terms with his dark side (and his dark side came to terms with smashing people up with a spiky chain embedded in his arm).

For more on it, you can read Kristan's review of the Xbox version from last year. Watch out for more on the Wii's Rival Swords in the near future.
