Prince of Persia Update

You may or may not know about this new addition to the Prince of Persia series.  Ubisoft released a hands on preview at the Tokyo Game Show to reveal a bit of the play style that the new game will feature.  The biggest change is that it seems to be a return to form.  The controls are simple and seem similar to the fluid controls of Assassin’s Creed.  There is a button for jumping, another for the sword, and another for his gauntlet.  There’s a little room for accidents, but it seems to work pretty well so far.  The fighting seems more stylish, but still boring though.  Another interesting focus is an attempt to make the new female lead, Elika, more involved.  The feel is reminiscent of a two-person game.  Elika will develop magical abilities that you can call on later and the early reports seem to show that they’re really building up her character.  If all goes well, this should be a nice boost for the struggling series.
