Product Information
A true icon of classic computer gaming, the Prince of Persia returns in The Forgotten Sands, an original 3D adventure of platform puzzles and free-flowing combat, set in the period between The Sands of Time and The Warrior Within. Although sharing similar themes and set in the same general time in the overarching storyline, the Wii version of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands was developed separately from the edition created for home computers and high-def consoles. Motion-controlled abilities aid the hero both in exploration and in combat. Flicking the Wii Remote causes the hero to swing his scimitar. He can use a "Sand Ring" power to place handholds on walls that allow him to grip and climb. He can also summon a rising pillar of sand, to launch him to high ledges. A magic "Sand Sphere" shell can be called forth, to allow the Prince to hang in midair, and temporarily protect him from attacks. The Wii edition of Forgotten Sands supports a cooperative feature, in which a second player can assist the Prince by aiming a second Wii Remote to temporarily bind onscreen enemies and slow down fast-moving traps. The Wii game also includes an emulation of the complete Super NES version of Prince of Persia, originally released in 1992. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is released alongside the summer 2010 theatrical debut of Disney's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, the feature film directed by Mike Newell and co-written by the game series' creator, Jordan Mechner.
