A Guatemalan retail site has listed a Prince of Persia remake, outing what is likely a secret, behind closed doors project at one of Ubisoft’s developers. That is, if it’s real.
A Twitter user named @KenXyro spotted the listing, and posted everything he found on the social media site. This includes images that harken back to the Prince of Persia reboot from last generation. That said, there’s also an included image from one of the games released as part of a trilogy on the Xbox, PlayStation 2 and GameCube. Prince of Persia: Warrior Within to be exact.

The website only lists PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch versions for some odd reason, which is another strange aspect of this. That said, Jason Schreier from Bloomberg seems to know something, as he’s been responding to those who say it’s fake.
Here’s hoping that this is a from-the-ground-up remake of the original, or Sands of Time. Anything but the mid-to-late 2000s remake, which was a pretty forgettable disappointment despite having great visuals. It was little more than a pretty collect-a-thon.
We should learn more during Ubisoft’s next presentation, which is set to air in September.
