Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands gets Captain Planet on your ass

8:00 PM on 04.30.2010 // Nick Chester

In this latest developer diary for Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, you get a nice look at the Prince's new ability to control various elements. Gifted with powers by a Djinn named Razia, the Prince can control earth, wind, water, and fire. 

Not just a killer R&B group, the powers are used both in puzzles and in combat. One use shows the Prince freezing waterfalls so he can wall run arosss them, or stopping water spouting from fountains to climb or swing. His wind power is shown for use in combat, picking up enemies and pulling them in before tossing them out in all directions.

The only thing missing here is "heart," a la Captain Planet. A bit disappointing. And on that note, I think we're long overdue for a Captain Planet game. I wonder what Respawn Entertainment is up to?
