New Prince of Persia not based on the movie

Those with morbid fears of movie tie-in games need not worry; The recently revealed Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands will not be one.

In a Q&A detailing bits and pieces about the game that Ubisoft mailed out today, it stands in black and white that “The Forgotten Sands is not related to the film in any way, other than being based within the same overall universe from our own Sands of Time game series. The Prince from The Forgotten Sands is the same one that players controlled in Sands of Time, Warrior Within and The Two Thrones, and its story is unrelated to the film.”

That’s settled then.
