If you enjoy jumping across rooftops with your trusty scimitar in hand, then today's a good day for you.
Ubisoft has finally revealed the release date for the iOS and Android release of Prince of Persia the Shadow and the Flame – and better still, it's coming this summer.
On July 25, Ubisoft will release the new Prince of Persia title for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.
Prince of Persia the Shadow and the Flame is a remake of the MS-DOS Broderbund classic platformer that was later ported to the Super Nintendo in 1996.
As you'd imagine, the mobile version features many enhancements over the 1996 port including 3D graphics, a reworked combat system (which includes a new combo mechanic), and piles of new weapons.
In a nod to its new home on mobile, Prince of Persia the Fire and the Flame will include achievements for players to unlock and it'll support leaderboards as well.
Most excitingly, however, players will be able to choose between gesture-based controls or more traditional, virtual joystick navigation.
Ubisoft also gave us a word on the pricing for Prince of Persia the Fire and the Flame - it'll cost $2.99 / £1.99 when it's released on July 25.
