Nintendo eShop Update: Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown

This week’s eShop update features the first high-profile game of the year: Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. The legendary series is returning to its roots as a 2D platformer in its first new release in well over a decade. Will the move pay off? You’ll be able to find out when the game launches on the 18th, though you’ll be able to get a small taste of the game when a demo drops later today. You can also keep an eye out for reviews, which should be showing up well before the full game launches.
