December 2nd: New Prince of Persia Hits Shelves

Kotaku reports today that the latest and somewhat different Prince of Persia game will be released December 2nd. Personally I haven’t been a big fan of 3rd person action games and shooters, but The Force Unleashed made me a little more open to the experience.

 

I’ve never played Prince of Persia more than the demos allowed, but I did notice the new animation style right off the bat, and I wonder why the departure from the styling that helped make it so successful?

The instant I saw the screenshot of the Prince, I remembered another Kotaku post from a month ago showing Jake Gyllenhaal on the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time set. Comparing the two pictures there’s certainly a more striking similarity of Gyllenhaal to the new Prince. I’m sure there’s more to it than my own musings; the new look is more “cartoony,” but still intriguing.

Anticipation for it,
