The Forgotten Sands is a side story, based in the Sands of Time universe, bridging the seven-year gap between the original Sands of Time game and its sequel, Warrior Within. How long how has The Forgotten Sands been in development, and when was it decided it would be a continuation of The Sands of Time series?
The game's been in development for a year and a half now, and it was decided that it would be part of The Sands of Time franchise fairly early in development -- that it would be the same Prince, same universe.
ow exactly, then, will The Forgotten Sands connect with next year's film, if at all?
Basically, the film is telling the story of The Sands of Time trilogy, which Ubisoft made, and this game is a story that happens on the side of that. So, it's the same character.
Will Jake Gyllenhaal voice the Prince in the game?
