Most say that Prince of Persia just isn't "hard enough," so they want Forgotten Sands to bring back oldies and win "a new audience" as well.
"When we make questionnaires and we ask, 'what did you play in the past?' The answer's 'Prince of Persia'. 'What do you play now?' 'God of War'," Sjovall told CVG, reports . "'Would you play Prince of Persia again?' 'No, it's not hard enough'."
Many complained that 2008's Prince of Persia was no challenge at all for action platformers, as the penalty of death just didn't exist. Every fall that should have proved fatal was simply undone by the companion NPC and her magical talents.
"So the idea was clearly that we'd try to bring our old audience back, but also we're winning a new audience," added Sjovall. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands releases on Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, DS, Wii and PC May 27th in Europe. Check the trailer below.
