Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame returns on July 25


The updated and portable version of Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame will leap onto the App Store, Google Play and Amazon on July 25. However, the sands of time have worn away the two from the title, so it's just Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame now.

Announced in April, the game freshens up the graphics and sound of classic platformer Price of Persia 2, with the option of virtual buttons or gesture-based controls. Ubisoft Pune, responsible for Prince of Persia Classic HD, handled development duties on the sequel. The game is priced at $2.99.
