Prince of Persia to Include SNES Remake of Original

Exclusively on Wii

While Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands on Wii won't look as good as the HD versions, nor feature the studly Jake Gyllenhaal, it'll be bringing along a little extra sumthin'-sumthin' that may sway retro game fans its way.

At the Nintendo of America Media Summit today, Ubisoft revealed that the Wii version will exclusively feature the full 1992 SNES remake of the original Prince of Persia.

Oh, and there's some sort of "first in franchise history" co-op too, according to this press release snippet:

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands™ from Ubisoft will launch May 18 on both the Wii and Nintendo DS platforms. Boasting amazing graphics with fantastic action and puzzle-solving game play, the Wii version will be the first in franchise history to feature a two-player cooperative experience. As an added bonus, the Wii version of the game will exclusively include the 1992 Super NES™ version of the original Prince of Persia game.

Guess we can count on that one not hitting the Virtual Console.
