2D Prince of Persia Rumor

A report on French site Le Portail du Jeu Vidéo says a new 2D installment in the Prince of Persia series is in the works using the engine behind Rayman Legends (thanks NowGamer). The report is unverified at this point, but here is a translation of what they are saying:

Not sure! According to our sources, a new Prince of Persia is in preparation (certainly in local Ubisoft Montpellier). This is a 2D title that carries the same engine as that of Rayman Legends with apparently bluffing animations details. The game uses the same techniques of animation in the last Rayman , ie the prince's body is divided into several parts (torso, pelvis, leg, shin, foot, forearm, hands, etc..) that can be animated independently of each other. This provides a real diversity / credibility in the postures and movements of the hero. The quality of the work is to believe in a 3D modeling both transitions are fluid and feel well made ​​volume. Prince - shirtless, dark complexion, medium brown hair - can run, hit the sword or jump against the walls. The usual array so.

Chapter assumptions - pending a formal response - Ubisoft seek to revive the series of Prince of Persia in abandoning adventures in 3D, as did Rayman Origins in 2011 Opting for a 2D game would also do. not impinge on the flat bands of Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs while providing a quality alternative to the excellent Rayman Legends ( métanote 89% on PJV ) in the catalog of a publisher who knows diversify its horizons.
