Ubi has announced that the official title for Prince of Persia 3 will be Prince of Persia: The Two Throne.  In this game the Prince is forced to deal with the Dark prince, a dark manifestation of his personality or a side effect of not taking his anti-depressants.  You decide.

Those who pre-order the game will get a copy of the official Prince of Persia trilogy soundtrack for free.  That's right, a dics with the music from all three games including such hits as "Falling down a well", "Sliding off a Stalactite", and "I can't believe that woman is wearing a metal bikini".


Today, Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced the official subtitle for the next video game in the critically-acclaimed Prince of Persia franchise, Prince of Persia The Two Thrones™.

“Prince of Persia The Two Thrones™ will allow players to explore the two different sides of the Prince’s divided soul,” said Yannis Mallat, executive producer for Prince of Persia The Two Thrones. “The Prince will battle with his inner demons and explore his alter ego. He’ll struggle with the boundaries between good and evil in his quest to regain his rightful place as ruler of Babylon.”
