Ubisoft's long-standing Prince of Persia franchise is making the jump to PlayJam's Android-powered GameStick ultra-portable video game console.  The French game company's Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame will be added to GameStick's proprietary digital download storefront later this year.

"As massive fans of Ubisoft games we are immensely proud that this hugely popular franchise is coming to GameStick," says Sameer Baroova, Head of Games at PlayJam.  "Rich, engaging games such as this are perfect examples of the type of content we are bringing to define the future of affordable big screen gaming.  We look forward to working with Ubisoft and our entire developer community in the months to come to ensure a steady stream of high quality content for GameStick."

Frederic Peltier, a Business Development Manager at Ubisoft, says the developer/publisher has been keeping an eye on the fledgling gaming console for some time now.

"We have been following GameStick´s progress with keen interest since launch earlier this year," he said.  "We feel this device and its target market presents an exciting opportunity to further broaden access to our games."

Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame was originally released in 1993 by Brøderbund for MS-DOS computers, then again in 1996 for Super Nintendo by Titus Software.  The current Ubisoft HD release of the game first appeared for iOS and Android devices earlier this year.

The Kickstarter-funded GameStick is available in-store and online at retailer such as GameStop and Amazon.  It retails for $80 USD.
