Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, Ubisoft's imminent action platformer, will see the return of the titular Prince in an all-new adventure, the first since 2010's The Forgotten Sands. Forgoing 3D, this more traditional style will hearken to the series' roots, taking inspiration from Persian mythology and adding a darker twist.

Combat looks to be a fairly frenetic affair, running at a blistering 120fps in 4K on PS5, keeping the time manipulation and action-based gameplay at the fore. Boss encounters look suitably climactic, seemingly influenced by the raft of excellent 2D action games released in the intervening years, including the inevitable melding of Souls-Like and Metroidvania. Ubisoft certainly has a looker on its hands, and Prince of Persia could be poised for a comeback. We don't have too much longer to wait either, as The Prince returns to PS5 and PS4 on 18th January.
