PrinceOfPersia TheForgottenSands Banner

After the first teaser/trailer for Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands was shown during the Video Game Awards ceremony last weekend, Ubisoft has released some pieces of concept art as well as some further details for the game. Ubisoft has stated that the game will be set inbetween the events of 2003’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and 2004’s Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.

In the game, the Prince will visit the kingdom of his brother following the events in Azam during The Sands of Time. The Prince will once again wield the power to manipulate time and the game will utilize the Anvil engine, which also powered both next-gen instalments in the Assassin’s Creed series and 2008’s Prince of Persia.

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is planned to release around the same time as the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time film, both of which are set for May 2010. The game will release on Xbox 360, PC and Playstation 3, with the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS and Sony PSP receiving unique adaptations of the game.

Three pieces of concept art for the game can be found after the jump.
