New Prince of Persia has co-op on Wii

A first for the action-adventure series.

Ubisoft has revealed co-op support for the Wii version of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

This will allow a friend to join the action and "manipulate traps, slow down enemies, uncover hidden secrets and utilise powers", according to a Ubisoft fact sheet.

More importantly, this will be the first "true co-op experience" introduced into a Prince of Persia game.

Ubisoft hasn't mentioned this feature in conjunction with any other version of Forgotten Sands.

What's more, the Wii game will include an on-disc playable copy of Prince of Persia, which was released on the SNES way back in 1992.

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands will accompany the new Jake Gyllenhaal Prince of Persia film and be released here in May.
