Assassin’s Creed: Pirates now available in the App Store

Great news for gamers this morning. Ubisoft’s highly anticipated mobile game Assassin’s Creed: Pirates is now available in the App Store. The release comes 3 months after the studio announced the title, which is exclusive for smartphones and tablets.
In Pirates, you’ll play as Alonzo Batilla, a young and ambitious captain looking to take on the fiercest of enemies. You’ll build up your crew and ship, and engage in real-time naval battles across the Caribbean Sea illustrated in “groundbreaking 3D visuals.”

Ubisoft sets Prince of Persia release date: July 25

Montreuil, France-headquartered games publisher Ubisoft in mid-April confirmed plans to bring its award-winning Prince of Persia game to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. A pick up and play adaptation of the 1993 Prince of Persia classic, Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame puts you in the shoes of the Prince character who must save his Princess and kingdom “on a journey that will pave the path to his origins.”

Ubisoft yesterday confirmed in the first development diary video on YouTube that Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame is headed to iOS and Android on July 25. I’ve included that clip and additional tidbits after the break…

Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame coming to iOS this summer

French games makers are responsible for some of the juiciest titles on Apple’s platform. Gameloft, for example, is a household name on the App Store and Ubisoft is no exception.

Headquartered in Montreuil, France, Ubisoft is behind some of the world’s top entertainment franchises, among them one of my favorites, Prince of Persia.

Created by Jordan Mechner and originally developed for and released on the Apple II in 1989, the Prince of Persia series has undergone several reboots, but they all share similar story elements, settings and characters. Their latest addition to the series, Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame, is scheduled to hit iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices this summer.

Developed by Ubisoft Pune, the studio focused on mobile and console gaming, Prince of Persia: The Shadow and The Flame is being billed as a pick up and play adaptation of the classic Prince of Persia franchise, “easy to handle but challenging to master.” You, of course, play as the Prince who must save his Princess and kingdom “on a journey that will pave the path to his origins.”

To me, that’s good enough an excuse to run, climb, swing, vault and jump from rooftop to rooftop, all over again. I’ve included more highlights, screenshots and a trailer right past the fold…
