Prince of Persia is only three weeks away, and the promotion is stepping up. A throng of videos have recently appeared, and they’re below. They still leave me with my tweak of concern that the game hasn’t made any real changes beyond the aesthetic. The addition of the NPC co-op buddy intrigues me, but the trailers have yet to show me what she does other than follow you around. However, those aesthetic changes really are stunning, and if they can recreate Sands of Time’s action I’ll be a happy man.
First there’s this one, named The Launch Trailer, which I suspect might have appeared before but cannot find any evidence for that:
This one’s called the Alchemiste gameplay trailer:
But best of all is this rather long Story trailer, that I hope you’re not supposed to sit through at the start of the game. Separately, it’s a really rather gorgeous cartoon. You can’t quite read the details in the version below (although it’s all nicely narrated), so you might want to watch the HD version instead.
The game’s released in the UK on the 5th December.
