The 3d Prince of Persia games are a big favorite of mine. I’ve played and finished all of them, I love the gymnastics and the beauty and spectacle that they evoke. The environments are different and the puzzles enjoyable. Apart from some very annoying combat I have little to complain about.
So I’m always happy when I hear about a new Prince of Persia game. The first screenshots were leaked recently and I have them below.
I must admit, mixed in with the screenshots was some concept art (see the original post here) and I had a hard time picking the screens out from the concepts. The new game style is gorgeous. I’d heard it was very painterly/ cellshaded but wasn’t expecting anything quite like this.
In fact they’re so pretty, I’ve posted them all at the largest size I can fit on the page. Click them to see even bigger versions.
