    Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is now official. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, which was announced during Summer Game Fest, is a 2D platformer that takes the best components of the modern Prince of Persia franchise and gives them a Metroidvania makeover. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, which debuted alongside a pretty lengthy gameplay trailer, doesn’t appear to be just another cash grab, with aesthetics, soundtrack, and gameplay that all feel worthy of the franchise, at long last.

    It’s been 13 long years since fans last played a new game, and many fans have stated their greatest hopes for a possible future entry in the series over that time. While many fans wished for a return to the 3D action-platforming that The Sands of Time provided, a sizable portion of the fanbase wished for a true return to form, dating all the way back to the first game in the series, and Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown appears to fulfil both of those wishes.

    The initial Prince of Persia and several of its successors, released in 1989, pioneered next-generation 2D platforming gameplay, with lifelike animations and pinpoint accurate jumps and acrobatics. This main notion was converted to a 3D plane 14 years later in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, revolutionising platforming for a new generation. From what fans have seen thus far, it appears that The Lost Crown combines both of these gameplay modes, taking the fluid parkour elements of Sands of Time and transferring them back into a lush 2D plane.

    Not only does Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown seem to get platforming correctly. Throughout the gameplay trailer for The Lost Crown, the game’s player-character, a Persian warrior named Sargon, is seen battling a variety of real-world and mythological opponents. From what fans have seen thus far, The Lost Crown’s gameplay appears to be extremely fluid and seamless, channelling the finest aspects of Hades and Dead Cells.

    The trailer shows off ranged action, close-quarters combat, a parrying system, and cinematic special moves, all of which seem quite stylish and rewarding to pull off. To top it off, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown revealed a handful of its boss bouts, all of which appear to be against scary legendary animals like a manticore or a big snake.

    Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown launches January 18, 2024, for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
