Be prepared to retrace your steps through the sands of time as a new 2D Prince of Persia is rumored to be made using Ubisoft's amazing new graphics engine.
Prince of Persia
Jordan Mechner is perhaps best known for his achievements in the video game world; he kicked-off his career in the '80s when he single-handedly created the best-selling video games Karateka and Prince of Persia -- the latter of course spawning several sequels (selling over 17 million games), and a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced movie, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
The sands of time have gone south for the Prince of Persia, as the franchise has been temporarily shelved. The move, however, does not signal an end to the Jordan Mechner created hero.
