Prince of Persia: The Misplaced Crown is lastly right here and has shortly been racking up reward from seemingly everybody who performs it. With such acclaim, it was solely going to be a matter of time earlier than hypothesis started about what the Ubisoft Montpellier workforce would flip their abilities to subsequent and it looks like the devs themselves have some fairly massive desires.

Final week, two of the sport’s builders, Christophe Pic (world director) and Rémi Boutin (senior sport designer), hosted an ‘Ask Us Something‘ chat on the r/metroidvania Reddit discussion board throughout which they had been requested a collection of questions concerning the sport, its inspirations and what it means to the Prince of Persia collection as an entire.

One query that was highlighted by The Gamer requested, “If you happen to may make a sport for an IP that you do not/have not had have entry to, for instance Mario or Last Fantasy, what IP would you decide and how much sport would you make?” It is no shock to say that Boutin’s response has piqued our curiosity:

Personally, I’d LOVE to work with the Zelda IP. Possibly an odd spin-off based mostly on Journey of Hyperlink? (and naturally Castlevania)

A Zelda spin-off, eh? Primarily based on the much-maligned side-scrolling entry within the collection, eh? Okay, we’re listening…

After all, that is removed from a affirmation of something (who would not wish to make a Zelda sport?), however it’s an concept that has left us eager about simply how fantastic an idea it could possibly be: The Misplaced Crown’s fight and motion however set on this planet of Hyrule — sure please!

All through the Swap technology, Nintendo has demonstrated its willingness to position its franchises within the fingers of third-party studios (maybe most notably, on this case, working with Ubisoft on the 2 Mario + Rabbids video games), so this Zelda II dream is not unattainable — even when it does really feel fairly unlikely.

For these questioning, Christophe Pic’s reply to the query took a barely completely different method, with the world designer expressing his dream to make a crossover between Bubble Bobble and Darkish Souls. Which reply appears the extra far-fetched now?
