Rounding out our coverage of the 2009 Video Game Awards, here’s the teaser trailer for the new Prince of Persia video game entitled Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and it’s an interesting prospect to behold.
Jake Gyllenhaal was on hand to introduce the game’s trailer, as well as a new (but mostly the same) trailer for his new movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The game is interesting because if you’re like me, you’ll wonder how this thing is going to play out. We all know the deal: movies adapted from video game titles are terrible and video games adapted from movies are terrible. So what happens when a video game is made that will likely be based more on the gigantic upcoming film that’s based on a hugely-popular pre-existing video game franchise? For example, as you will notice, Prince Dastan does look a tad more like Gyllenhaal in the trailer than he may have in the past. Things could go bad here, and they could go there very quickly. If the developers (Ubisoft, who have done the best of the game’s titles) stayed true to the old games this could be all the fun the others were, so let us hope and hope and hope.
You know the drill: head on over to watch the new trailer for Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and share your own thoughts!
