New Prince of Persia 3 trailer

Development diary ahoy!

The first Prince of Persia 3 development video diary has been made available for download on Eurofiles.

The clip gives details about our hero's outdoor environment of Babylon, showing its inspiration and creation across day and night as well as how the Prince will interact with it – all thanks to a number of storyboards, cut-scenes, conceptual sketches, gameplay footage and handy interview material with producer Ben Mattis and Olivier Leonardi, the game's artistic director.

Prince of Persia: Kindred Blades follows the plot of the Prince's return to Babylon with his love Kaileena, only to find himself an outcast in his own land and the spirit of a Dark prince is beginning to possess him. In turn, this gives you the chance to play as to different characters, both boasting unique fighting styles and weapons to mix things up with. All on top of time-shifting powers, stealth/action gameplay and wonderful decapitations, if you so wish.

Prince of Persia: Kindred Blades is due out on PC, PS2, Xbox, GameCube and GBA in December 2005.
