It looks like Android could very well be getting another Prince of Persia game in the near future. According to an announcement Ubisoft made yesterday, the company has been working on a new Prince of Persia game for mobile platforms called Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame.

While the game announcement doesn't go into specifics as to which platforms this new Prince of Persia game would be arriving on, it is a safe bet that it will be for both iOS and Android (since it is the same Ubisoft division that made Prince of Persia Classic for both platforms) although you can probably expect the Android version to be released after the iOS version.

The screenshot, which emerged on the official Ubisoft forums this weekend, makes reference to 'PoP Zero 2'. According to long-standing reports, 'PoP Zero' was a failed 2008 reinvention of the Prince of Persia series set in the modern era.

After the secret project was canned, many features and design ideas were said to have been incorporated into the original Assassin's Creed. The first whispers of a new 'Persia were voiced ahead of this year's E3, when supposedly leaked images appeared showing a cloaked figure and the phrase "Judgement is coming". The 'leaked' E3 pics appear to align with what we can see in today's image. We've contacted Ubisoft for comment. [SOURCE]

Leaked images can prove to be massively informative or completely misleading, and the latest grabs of what looks to be a cinematic trailer from Ubisoft could go either way. Beyond some classical glimpses of armor and weaponry, it’s difficult to tell if the developer is preparing to unveil a new Prince of Persia title at E3 2012, or another entirely different property. Either way, it seems that ‘Judgment is Coming.’

Oh, videogames, how we love your stories that lift up our spirit and at the same time let us beam it down to the ground by means of an ion cannon. One could say the Writers Guild of America acknowledges this with its announcement for the 2011 WGA Awards nominees for videogame writing, a category that first appeared in 2008.

Then again, this year's nominees are: Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Fallout: New Vegas, God of War III, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Singularity and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. You have to keep in mind that this is based on submitted scripts for videogames -- not on actual in-game writing analysis or whatnot -- but even so, some of these titles seem like odd choices, to say the least.

Here's the full list of credits for each nominee:
  • Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Story by Patrice Desilets, Jeffrey Yohalem, Corey May; Lead Script Writer: Jeffrey Yohalem; Script Writers: Ethan Petty, Nicholas Grimwood, Matt Turner; Ubisoft
  • Fallout: New Vegas, Creative Design Lead/Lead Writer: John Gonzalez; Writers: Chris Avellone, Eric Fenstermaker, Travis Stout; Additional Writing: Tess Treadwell, George Ziets, Jason Bergman, Nick Breckon, Matt Grandstaff, Will Noble, Andrew Scharf; Bethesda Softworks
  • God of War III, Written by Marianne Krawcyzk; Additional Writing by Stig Asmussen, Ariel Lawrence, William Weissbaum; Sony Computer Entertainment
  • Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Writer: Benjamin McCaw; Story Dialogue Editor: Marianne Krawczyk; Ubisoft
  • Singularity, Written by Marc Guggenheim, Lindsey Allen, Emily Silver; Additional Story and Writing: Jason Henderson, Adam Foshko, Michael Cassutt; Story and Script Consultant: Adam Foshko; Activision
  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, Executive Producer-Writer: Haden Blackman; In-Game Script: David Collins, John Stafford, Cameron Suey; Additional Writing: Tid Cooney, Ian Dominguez, Tony Rowe; LucasArts

In a stealth announcement, Ubisoft’s revealed that The Prince of Perisa Trilogy, previously announced as a Blu-ray offering in Europe, is destined for a North American PSN release.

In fact, Prince of Persia The Sands of Time, the first installment, hits the service today. Not a mere port, it has been given a complete overhaul in the visual department, boasting sharp 720p renders with added 3D effects for those with a capable television.

Prince of Persia Warrior Within and Prince of Persia The Two Thrones, the remaining chapters to this time-rewinding trilogy, are scheduled to drop in a similarly staggered fashion “sometime in December.” Each title will carry a price point of $14.99, featuring the same enhancements as in Sands of Time.
