Prince of Persia (Wii Virtual Console / Super Nintendo)

Game Profile

Sheik, rattle and roll towards your destiny, o fearless one.

The award-winning computer software adventure that has people everywhere rattling their sabres is here for Super NES. And now the animation is more detailed, and the controls more responsive. There's even a five-part training mode for sharpening your running, jumping, climbing and sword fighting skills.

But the sands of time are against you. For you must survive 20 perilous stages, rescue the princess from the evil Grand Vizier Jaffar, and claim the royal residency all before the hourglass is empty.

Beware the unpredictable floors and ceilings, gut-splitting guillotines, hidden spikes, walls of flames and more. Jaffar's spells spell doom if you're not crafty and nimble. And a legion of savage servants, amazons and immortal skeletons will do his barbaric bidding. Even your own alter ego is the enemy.

Pass through invisible doors and walk through space portals. Find vessels of magic potion, but partake of them wisely. They may increase your life or just as easily poison you. So take each step with caution, young would-be prince, or the entire kingdom with suffer the darkest Arabian night ever.

I am honestly surprised that this game got in the Virtual Console. Konami published the US version, there were two defunct companies involved, and Ubisoft now owns it. There must have been some messy legal issues to get this game in.
