So another Monday brings another round of updates for the various platforms that Nintendo currently has on the market. Of course, actual videogames developed by this AAA developer would be more welcome; however, the ability to fall back in time and see games of yesteryear is always a welcome distraction from Skyrim.

This week, going back in time is something that’s very prevalent with Ubisoft’s epic Prince of Persia at it’s 2D glory making more than one appearance.
