New Prince of Persia confirmed for May

Ubi reveals more details of next instalment.

Ubisoft has confirmed that Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands will hit the shops in May.

The PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii version of the game will launch in Europe on 14th May, two days after it arrives in the US. The other versions (PC, DS and PSP) aren't mentioned, but you can bet they won't be long - the new Prince of Persia movie is also out that month and it's all about the tie-in.

The Forgotten Sands sees our hero exploring a mysterious realm, and fighting to save a mysterious palace from some mysterious evil. He's more acrobatic than ever these days, able to negotiate through traps, solve tricky puzzles and bosh giant bosses. The Prince also enjoys mucking about with sand and can use it to open up new areas for exploration.

Ubi is promising that the Wii version will use "advanced technologies" to offer "a smooth, clear and impressive graphical experience on Wii". There are 15 hours of storyline to enjoy, plus alternative paths, secret bits and unlockables.

You can find some screenshots from the game over on the gamepage.
