There’s a considerable number of players who have been waiting eagerly for the Prince of Persia franchise revival. A franchise that was once popular worldwide now stands silent with no major game to its name in a while. Ubisoft Montpellier’s Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown intends to change that. Originally announced back in 2023, the game is all set to release on January 18, 2024 for the PS5|PS4, Xbox One|Series X/S, Windows, and the Nintendo Switch. Now, with the game arriving on so many platforms, a lot of fans have been asking whether they will be able to enjoy the game on their PC handhelds—Steam Deck, Rog Ally, and Legion Go.
The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake has been in developmental hell for quite a while. With continuous delays and then switching studios from Ubisoft Mumbai and Pune to Ubisoft Montreal, the development for the game now seems to be on track, as announced by Ubisoft in November 2023. This is also a major reason why Prince of Persia fans have been eagerly awaiting The Lost Crown’s release since we won’t be seeing The Sands of Time Remake anytime soon. So, will Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown support devices like Rog Ally, Legion Go, and the Steam Deck? Continue reading to find out!
Prince of Persia The Lost Crown Steam Deck, Legion Go & Asus Rog Ally Support details
As of now, Ubisoft hasn’t given out any official details regarding Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown being supported for the Deck, the Lenovo Legion Go, or the Asus Rog Ally. However, that doesn’t mean the game isn’t going to be playable on these handhelds. In fact, we are quite confident that fans will be able to play Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown on any of these PC handhelds.
As we stated before, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown will be arriving on all major platforms, including the Nintendo Switch. Windows, of course, is included too. And since both the Legion Go and the Asus Rog Ally run on Windows, players will be able to play on these two handhelds without many issues. It’s the Steam Deck where problems start to arise. See, the issue here is that PoP: TLC will only be available to purchase on the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store. Yes, that’s right! The Lost Crown isn’t going to be available on Steam. Due to this, playing the game on the Deck will be a hassle.
You might have realized that we didn’t say Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown would be impossible to play on the Steam Deck. That’s because there are two ways to enjoy the game on your Deck. The first is through emulation. Since The Lost Crown will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, you can just install Yuzu or Ryujinx on the Deck and then emulate the game on it. The other one, of course, is by dual-booting Windows. Whichever method you choose for playing on the Deck, be ready to spend some time tinkering with the device. As for Legion Go and Rog Ally users, all you need to do is wait for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown to release on January 18, 2024.
