Prince Of Persia: The Lost Crown Dev Would “Love” To Make A Zelda Spinoff

Nintendo and Ubisoft have previously joined hands for Mario + Rabbids.

Story Highlights

  • Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown Senior Game Designer is interested in making a Zelda II spinoff game.
  • The idea isn’t too far-fetched since Nintendo and Ubisoft have previously collaborated.
  • Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown has marked a successful entry to the franchise.

A developer of the recent phenomenon in the gaming world, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown has voiced interest in developing a spinoff game for The Legend of Zelda. Just how wonderful the idea sounds, it isn’t too out of reach since Nintendo and Ubisoft have previously collaborated and seem to be on good terms for another crossover as well.

In an “Ask Me Anything” session hosted by two of The Lost Crown developers, Christophe Pic (World Director) and Rémi Boutin (Senior Game Designer) on the Metroidvania subreddit, a fan asked the devs to pick a series or IP they would like to work on and haven’t had access to so far. In response, Boutin said that they would “love” to work on a Zelda IP, specifically a Zelda II spinoff.

Personally, I would LOVE to work with the Zelda IP. Maybe a strange spin-off based on Adventure of Link? :D (and of course Castlevania)”

Of course, Boutin’s statement is far from any confirmation and they are simply stating a personal wish, but it isn’t entirely implausible given that Nintendo and Ubisoft have previously collaborated with a Mario + Rabbids title. Moreover, The Adventure of Link is the only sidescrolling game in the mainline Zelda series, so it won’t be much of a shock if the dev team applies their sidescrolling expertise from The Lost Crown to craft a Zelda II spinoff title.

Boutin also mentioned the Castlevania series, which is another fitting connection, given that The Lost Crown belongs to the Metroidvania genre. For those curious, Christophe Pic offered a slightly different perspective in response to the question expressing a desire to create a crossover between Bubble Bobble and Dark Souls.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is the latest entry in the popular Prince of Persia series, developed and published by Ubisoft. The game was released on January 18, 2024, and has revitalized the franchise as a Metroidvania while also restoring its classic sidescrolling roots. The title was launched for a myriad of new and previous-gen platforms.
