Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown Nintendo Switch Impressions

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is coming to the Nintendo Switch this month and thanks to Ubisoft, I got to check out the Nintendo Switch version of the game. Here are my thoughts on Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown so far.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is coming out on January 18th, 2023. Thanks to Ubisoft I got an early look at the game and here are my thoughts so far.

The story for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is very different from what we’ve seen in the past for the series. The game starts during a war and introduces to us a group of immortal warriors. The main character is a part of that group. The opening story is told through a combination of artwork and animation. These cutscenes are alright but not as great as the game’s actual graphics.

The Lost Crown is a 2.5D style game like Metroid Dread. The characters and environments are highly detailed and have lots of neat props in the background and foreground. This is a great looking game. It’ll remind you of the past games in the series while also introducing some cool new elements too. The same can be said for the gameplay, which feels old school but also fresh and new.

I’ve found myself exploring the Lost Crown’s world, Metroidvania style and also swinging from poles, climbing up walls, and avoiding traps like the old Persia games. There are also new special attacks and amulets that help with attacks and health. The gameplay is a lot of fun so far. I have it on easy mode so its not overly difficult and the map along with a glowing line help you from getting too lost. Its a really cool game and I can’t wait to see what happens in it next!

Please stay tuned to for more on Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown!
