The resurgence of the iconic Prince of Persia series has fans eagerly anticipating the future, as Ubisoft rolls out plans for not only Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, but also the awaited Sands of Time Remake. The momentum doesn't stop there; insider reports suggest another project in the works. According to information from Tom Henderson at Insider Gaming, Evil Empire, the creative minds behind the popular Dead Cells, is now focusing its talents on the Prince of Persia universe. Their next project, dubbed The Rogue Prince of Persia, is said to be a roguelite game drawing artistic inspiration from the classic Franco-Belgian comic strips such as Asterix and The Adventures of Tintin. Earlier this year, Evil Empire had signaled its intention to embark on new ventures, presumably leading to their involvement in rejuvenating this beloved franchise.
In related news, Sturgent Studios, alongside EA, has made a strategic move to enhance the launch of their anticipated game, Tales of Kenzera: Zau. Subscribers of PlayStation Plus Extra and PlayStation Plus Premium will find themselves with direct access to this Metroidvania title upon its release, without any extra charge. This endeavor mirrors the increasing movement towards enhancing the availability of premium games to a wider demographic via subscription models. Tales of Kenzera: Zau introduces players to the adventures of young warrior-shaman Zau. Embarking on a quest to negotiate with Kalunga, the God of Death, Zau aims to bring back his Baba from the afterlife. With its release date set for April 23, the game will be available across platforms including PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC, promising a rich narrative and immersive gameplay experience.
