Climax Studios working on unannounced Prince of Persia and horror titles, possibly for PS4




Climax Studios, the developer who brought you games such as Rocket Knight, Eyepet and Friends and Overlord: Dark Legend, have just posted details and screenshots on their site about two of their upcoming projects, one of which fans of a certain Persian Prince will find especially interesting.

The first title they listed as part of their body of work is one labelled “character action platformer”, and screenshots for it can be seen below.

The aesthetic, a blend of fantasy and Ancient Arabian elements, is undoubtedly reminiscent of the Prince of Persia series, as is the lead character, whose long black hair and white attire are very similar to the Sands of Time era Prince.

If you look closely, you’ll notice that the action-oriented screenshots look as if they’re based in a 2D plane, leaving us to believe that the game will be a sidescroller or perhaps even a 2D/3D gameplay hybrid akin to Sonic Generations.

Lastly, the vibrant style of the visuals is somewhat evocative of the cel-shaded look of the 2008 Prince of Persia reboot. Could that mean this game will be returning to that particular storyline? The more traditional Prince design has us in doubt, but we won’t deny the possibility.

Then we come to the other title, simply labelled “unannounced title”, the screenshots of which are below.

This one is a horror game by the looks of it, with an oppressively dark atmosphere and rather unsettling imagery. Supposedly, the game will cast players as a young girl within a decrepit and creepy house, though that’s about all we can gather.

Whereas the Prince of Persia title will undoubtedly be published by Ubisoft, it’s unknown who the publisher is for this project. Climax certainly aren’t owned by Ubisoft, having made games for parties like Konami and Sony.

It’s important to note that Climax is a developer who has been confirmed as working with Playstation 4 tech, meaning one or even both of these games may be in development for the next-gen console. Regardless, the other question remains of whether or not these games will be downloadable titles or full-priced retail products.

Stay tuned for much more coverage of these titles whenever they get a proper reveal.

Troy Baker Discusses His Return as Joel in The Last of Us Part II

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
