PlayJam announced that its HDMI plug-in microconsole GameStick will host a port of Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame in its online storefront by the end of December.

Originally released in 1993, The Shadow and the Flame featured creative, difficult puzzle-platforming gameplay in the same vein as its 1989 Apple II predecessor. A mobile remake hit iOS and Android in July, which will likely serve as the base for the upcoming GameStick edition.

Funded by a successful Kickstarter project earlier this year, the GameStick met with a series of delays before finally hitting store shelves last month alongside the PlayStation 4. The GameStick is currently available at GameStop and other retailers.
