New Prince of Persia: named and screenshot'ed

The eagerly awaited next installation in the Prince of Persia franchise has been given a name. Prince of Persia: Heir Apparent got a spread in Game Informer and this enterprising fellow has scanned the article. It’s in French, but hey.

Judging from the scanty screenshots provided, the graphics have a new cel-shaded look which may or may not go well, and the character design looks a little more like Sword of the New World than anything else. Last time they made a departure (Warrior Within) it was kind of weak, so let’s hope the new game has the chops to go along with the new style.
