Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake was officially unveiled during the September Ubisoft Forward livestream. The critically-acclaimed action-adventure title will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox next January, but there is one system where confusion has reigned regarding a remake port.
Nintendo Switch fans had hoped that The Sands of Time remake would also launch on the hybrid console. Since its reveal, however, there’s been plenty of confusion about whether it will receive a Switch release. So, will Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake come to the Nintendo Switch?
At the time of writing, it appears so. To begin with, the game’s reveal trailer — at the Ubisoft Forward event — didn’t include the Switch logo at its end. Epic Games Store, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and Uplay logos were all present, but Nintendo’s console didn’t make an appearance. This suggested that a Switch port wouldn’t be forthcoming.
However, fans have found references to a Switch port since the event. Twitter user and Nintendo fanatic Stealth posted a screenshot of the Ubisoft France Twitter account, which mentioned that a Switch version would be coming. Ubisoft deleted the tweet soon after and, while gaming insider Daniel Ahmad suggested that the port wouldn’t come in January, it appears that a Switch edition will arrive at some point.
Another Stealth tweet also showed a screenshot of the game’s official website, which listed the Nintendo Switch as one of its many platforms.
Since then, the website has scrubbed all references to a Switch edition. However, with the evidence already out in the wild, The Sands of Time remake seems all-but-confirmed for the Switch. When we have official details of its launch date, we will update this guide.
