Ubisoft has confirmed to Eurogamer that Prince of Persia Classic will be next Wednesday's Live Arcade download.

"It is on the 13th, on Xbox Live Arcade," a Ubisoft spokesperson told us.

Unfortunately a price is yet to be announced.

Prince of Persia Classic is a remake of the first game in the influential platform-action series. This 1989 gem by Jordan Mechner will be brought up to date by developer Gameloft, and undergo a complete graphical overhaul.

On top of the cosmetic changes, there will be a few new traps, puzzles and enemies thrown in to keep Prince veterans on their toes.

The original Prince of Persia gave players 60 minutes to rescue the Princess from her fate at the hands of the evil Vizier - either marry him, or die.
