Having been booted into reconfirming its European plans for Beyond Good & Evil and Prince of Persia once already this month, Ubisoft announced to nobody's surprise this evening that both critically acclaimed titles will be making their way to Xbox and GameCube in the first quarter of 2004.
All that remains to be revealed is precise release dates, and fortunately we do now have one - for Prince of Persia at least. According to Ubisoft's release, we can expect to see Cube and Xbox versions of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time on retailers' shelves from February 27th, with Beyond Good & Evil appearing on both formats in early March 2004.
It's certainly exciting news for fans of those formats, given that Beyond Good & Evil was one of the most disarmingly beautiful and arresting videogame experiences of 2003 and Prince of Persia was even better.
