187w ago - Today Producer Joel Vignola has shared a video reveal that testifies Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, which arrives on May 18, 2010, is built specifically for Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: Let me start off by explaining a few points we at Ubisoft Quebec City are exceptionally proud of. To begin with, Forgotten Sands is not a game based on the upcoming Sands of Time movie; we created our own storyline for the game.
Second of all, this IS a unique game built from the ground up specifically for the PSP, this is not a port from any other system. The adventure is all new, the location is new, and the Prince's powers are all new as well. The only way to experience this adventure is on the PSP.
Some of the new powers include the ability to speed up and slow down objects within the game; being able to solidify sand lets the prince create new paths, while speeding up traps can be used against enemies. You can give yourself some breathing room by slowing down traps or enemies, or increase the challenge by playing everything at full speed.
We're really interested to see what you guys have to say after playing the game and can't wait to answer your questions, even if they're...

To quote: With the game coming out so soon and everyone at Ubisoft excited to see what you guys thought of it, we wanted to get your opinions on the PlayStation.Blog and have the chance to answer some questions you guys might have for us.
To start off, let me explain a little about Forgotten Sands. The first thing I wanted to mention is to let you all know that this is not a movie based on the Sands of Time film.
In fact, we are bringing the prince back to the roots from the PlayStation 2 era by having this game take place in the seven year gap between Sands of Time and Warrior Within. We think you'll notice a lot of reminiscent elements of the original trilogy in Forgotten Sands.
Some other things we're extremely excited to talk about are the elemental powers and epic battles that take place n the game. Thanks to the Anvil Engine from Assassin's...
