Prince of Persia Redemption Gameplay Footage Surfaces Online, But It Might Be Fake

Do you remember the Prince of Persia video game? Well, now its time for you to remember it. An eight-year-old video of Prince of Persia Redemption is currently circulating on the internet. This uploaded video is actually an unreleased part of the video game.

The video caught quite a lot of attention, and it was later confirmed by Jonathan Cooper, a former Ubisoft Montreal developer, to be just a “test footage for a canceled Prince of Persia pitch.” The uploaded video reveals a few elements that look very similar to the game lineup, including platforming and time-altering fight.

Jordan Mechner is the creator of the Prince of Persia game franchise. This video game was made back in 1989. Prince of Persia is part of the action-adventure game genre, and the whole series is based on all sorts of incarnations of the Prince.

As we said above, the video of this video game was released eight years ago in 2012, but it suddenly came back to light. For some reason, fans are focusing on this old footage. As Cooper conferred, this was a genuine project. However, this project didn’t come to life. It got canceled before reaching the general public attention.

Overseen Prince Of Persia Redemption Footage Is All About

Let’s investigate the uploaded footage in detail. At the beginning of the footage, we can see the captioning Ubisoft Montreal. Next, the view of realistic desert beauty is revealed, and soon the leading character pops up. Well, the character is presumably the Prince. However, the calm situation suddenly changes when enemies show up from all around. The Prince starts protecting himself using his magical sword. But, that’s not all, besides jumping and thrashing around, the Prince is also fighting his way toward a giant monster coming beneath the city.

As Cooper confirmed, the video is legit; however, it wasn’t actual gameplay. “The team did such a great job making it look like gameplay,” he added. The former developer also shared about his team effort on creating the gameplay as real as possible. Plus, the old project was also a source of inspiration for a similar pitch for Assassin’s Creed III.

“Sadly Ubisoft are generally quicker to cancel Prince of Persia games than others IPs because AFAIK original creator Jordan Mechner still holds license rights so the profit margins are lower. I would love to see a new one though. I’ve always wanted a PoP set in contemporary Iran,” added Cooper.
