Following the Spike VGA trailer reveal this weekend, Ubisoft has dropped more details on the upcoming Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

While the title does fit within The Sands of Time trilogy storyline, it doesn't exactly continue it. Instead. The Forgotten Sands takes place between the events of The Sands of Time and The Warrior Within, finding Prince visiting his brother's kingdom. There he finds that the palace is under siege, and makes the decision to use his newly acquired Sands of Time powers to save the kingdom from being annihilated. This decision comes with consequences and, as they say, the sh*t goes down. 

Ubisoft is promising "huge-scale multi-enemy combat," along with the expected acrobatics we've seen in the previous title. The game is being powered by Ubisoft's "Anvil" Engine, which was recently seen powering Assassin's Creed II (as well as the original Assassin's Creed and 2008's Prince of Persia, under the name "Scimitar"). The Prince will apparently not only be able to control time, but also the forces of nature, which he'll find "to be a devastating companion to his ability to rewind time."

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands ships next May for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS/DSi, and Wii. Not unexpectedly, the DS, Wii, and PSP versions will be different games than those found on PC/PS3/360.
