Prince of Persia Classic Headed to Xbox LIVE Arcade

June 11, 2007

The more recent Prince of Persia games were absolutely wonderful and this Wednesday you can take a trip back to where things all began as Prince of Persia Classic makes its way onto Xbox LIVE Arcade.

[quote]Return to ancient Persia to battle the evil Vizier Jaffar and his men – but don’t take forever to save the princess! “Prince of Persia Classic,” will be available for download on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 beginning Wednesday, June 13, at 9 a.m. GMT (1 a.m. PDT).

In Ubisoft’s “Prince of Persia Classic,” gamers take on the role of the prince as he embarks on a mission to rescue the princess before she has to wed the wicked Jaffar – all of which must be accomplished in under 60 minutes! Jumping across platforms and avoiding traps, the prince must collect bottles of potions to keep his power bar charged as he duels enemies on his way to the princess.[/quote]

For 800 MS Points you can nab the ported version of the original Prince of Persia game complete with the following features:

  • Enhanced character designs, animations and visuals
  • New traps, puzzles and enemies to tackle further augment the classic experience
  • 12 Achievements will be available – ranging from the simple (finding the sword in the first level) to the near impossible (finding all the potions in the game or finishing the game without dying!)
  • The title will feature 3 different leaderboards:
    • Normal Mode: Complete the game as fast as possible, which saves at the end of each level
    • Time Attack Mode: Complete the game as fast as possible – but be prepared to start from the beginning if you fail to save the Princess in under 60 minutes
    • Survival Mode: Complete the entire game in under 60 minutes – without dying
