Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is set to hit retail on May 18, just 10 days before the Jerry Bruckheimer movie based on the Sands of Time universe makes its box office debut. While the previous Prince of Persia had some mixed reactions, Ubisoft is hoping to recapture the original Prince of Persia audience with this new game. The impact of the movie could be very good as well – feedback from lucky individuals who viewed early screenings has been largely positive. Check out the new trailer for the game below (courtesy of Joystiq). It sets the stage for the prince needing to, of course, save the kingdom.
