Prince of Persia Battles DS
That Prince sure is a busy one these days
Ubisoft announced today that a new game within the Prince of Persia franchise is currently in development for the Nintendo DS. Titled Battles of Prince of Persia, the game will stray from the series' usual action/adventure genre and embrace a new design: card battles.
Taking place between the events of the first two games, Sands of Time and Warrior Within, the Prince accidentally releases an ancient evil and brings about a war between Persia and India.
With a war-focused theme, players command a variety of troops and battle units through tactical means of grid-based areas. When two forces collide and a battle ensues, a card battle system appears and allows for careful selection of attacking methods.
Through means of wireless connectivity, players can engage in head-to-head multiplayer battles, as well as trade various cards to expand their collection.
Look for Battles of Prince of Persia on the Nintendo DS sometime this holiday season.
