Prince of Persia 3 Named

PC News | No toilet humour please. Screen shots and a video included.
Ubisoft have today announced that the next title in their Prince of Persia franchise will be named Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones. The title is expected to be out on the PC, Xbox, PS2 and GameCube around December this year.

The Two Thrones will feature a new gameplay element called the Speed Kill. This involves taking enemies out in one shot before they’ve detected you. “If the Prince goes undetected, he will be able to trigger a series of Speed Kill attacks that lead to spectacular finishing moves. The Prince will often have to use his environment and his athletic skills to reach upper positions in order to take his enemies by surprise from above” says artistic director Olivier Leonardi. “Speed Kill is about killing your enemy BEFORE being detected. This new system made us rethink the whole AI of the enemies in the game, and the results so far are very impressive. Patrolling enemies will be able to detect the Prince, either by seeing him or by hearing him.”

Another feature new to The Two Thrones is a second playable character in the form of the Dark Prince (as opposed to the plain old “Prince” we’re used to). The Dark Prince represents the Prince’s alter ego and will utilise more violent attacks than his counterpart.

dark prince hey?

sounds like they're trying the Soul Reaver/Metroid Prime: Echoes 2 worlds thing to me.

i might be wrong about MP:E, but to me the Light/Dark thing sounded like Soul Reaver's Corporeal/Ethereal worlds.
