Publisher Ubisoft has announced a full high definition 3D remake of the 1989 original puzzle platformer Prince of Persia, in development by mobile developer Gameloft for Xbox Live Arcade, to be released in early summer. Originally developed by Jordan Mechner for the Apple II, the original Prince of Persia went on to be released for numerous console, PC, and handheld platforms, and was widely recognized for both its puzzle-platform gameplay and as a landmark for its realistic rotoscoped character animation. For the Xbox Live Arcade remake, Gameloft has re-done the game in full 3D, maintaining its 2D perspective and play, bringing it closer to Ubisoft's more recent Prince of Persia action sequels. Ubisoft has promised that the game will include new traps, puzzles and enemies, but will maintain "the same intricate level design, exciting swordplay, puzzle solving, and storyline from the original."
