Two for PSP from Ubi

The PSP will be getting some love from Ubisoft later this year in the form of two new games: Rainbow Six Vegas and a new Prince of Persia title. The French publisher announced that Rainbow Six Vegas, previously announced only for PS3 and Xbox 360, will also be making its way to the Sony handheld and will feature parallel its next-gen versions, though it will also include new content and all-new characters. Detailed information on the title can be found just after the jump.

Pipeworks Software, which delivered a port of Prince of Persia: Warrior Within to the PSP last year, is working on Prince of Persia Rival Swords, a conversion of Prince of Persia The Two Thrones. As expected, the PSP game will feature the same content as the original, but will also include a new multiplayer mode, allowing players to race against one another as the Prince and the Dark Prince. It will also include new single-player chariot race menus that exist outside of the game’s story. Rival Swords is set for release this Holiday season in Europe; North America will receive it sometime next year.
