Prince of Persia: The Forgetten Sands coming to idevices?

this is from pocketgamer

Ubisoft hasn't forgotten Prince of Persia

A seriously built Jake Gyllenhaal will take to the silver screen in May's Prince of Persia movie, but his visage may also come to your iPhone and iPod touch screen in an adventure built just for the device.

Ubisoft is working on a handheld version of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, which will be released on the App Store in conjunction with previously announced DS and PSP versions. This is pretty close to what the guys have been asking for.

I'm told it's a side-scrolling platform-action game in the vein of the Prince of Persia Zero, but done in the style of the Sands of Time series instead of the beautiful watercolour of the 2008 game (if only!)

The game follows the prince as he travels to his brother's kingdom, only to find it besieged by a mysterious army. Of course, he's compelled to save his brother's domain, though doing so requires wielding the sands of time.

Apparently, this iPhone and iPod touch version differs significantly from the approach being taken on the console versions. The style of gameplay differs - 3D action on console versus 2D on handheld - but we're wondering if maybe there are different scenarios, too.

We'll know on May 18th when the game is released.

Sweet. PoP is way awesome! If the ds game is 3d this should be too... But AC2 was still fun.

i like this game also i like AC2 by ubisoft it was very fun but side-scrolling and 2D style is not for idevice yeah we need real perfect 3D games

Quit whining already.
There might be a lot people who want to have a decent side-scoller.

Duke Nukem Manhatten - one of the best side-scrollers I've ever seen.
We don't need only "perfect 3D games".

The more variety, the better.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
