Prince of Persia sidekick revealed, now with tasteful cleavage

8:38 PM on 05.22.2008 // Joseph Leray

If you're itching for information on the new Prince of Persia title, then the second "speed art" trailer might keep you satisfied until the Ubidays event next week. J-C Guyot, creative lead for the new title, introduces Elika, the Prince's new sidekick. He says that she will be helpful in every facet of the game -- from combat to puzzle solving to narrative development. I have to say, I'm really impressed with Elika's character design.

Speaking of design, some new screenshots from the game have come to light, and I'll be damned if I'm not really impressed with those, too. The cel-shading from these screens looks gorgeous. The character design and the cel-shading look like they would easily lend themselves to tight, fluid animation. Ubisoft aren't slackers when it comes to graphics, and I'm anxious to see Elika and the Prince in action.

On a personal note, as my family is French, hearing Guyot's rad accent was like a little taste of home. Fortunately, I'm exempt from the deadly sway that French accents seem to hold over Americans of all ages and genders. It's just kind of hard to get lost in a dreamy voice that sounds like my dad's.
