Ubisoft bringing Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars, Assassin's Creed Recollection, Prince of Persia and more to iOS

Ubisoft has announced four new titles for iPhone and iPad, which include several of the developer's biggest franchises, including Prince of Persia and Assassin's Creed.

There will also be games from lesser known series, such as Rabbids Go HD and Rabbids Go Phone Again, and a new title called Monster Burner. Luckily for you, we've already been hands-on with the latter.

Most of these titles are set to hit the App Store some time in November, but could be delayed into next year.

Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars

The App Store will also see the arrival of the Nintendo 3DS's top-down turn-based strategy title Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars, which will hit iOS relatively unchanged.

Naturally, the 3DS's top screen is absent, and has been replaced with a birds-eye view of your battlefield. We gave the Nintendo 3DS version of the game a respectable Bronze Award at review.

Michael Jackson: The Experience

Pocket Gamer's very own Rich Brown will be pleased to see that Michael Jackson: The Experience is also headed to Apple's digital shores.

As you can imagine, The Experience is a rhythm-based game that sees you drawing and swiping on your screen to make Jacko dance.

Prince of Persia Classic

Like current App Store offering Prince of Persia Retro, Prince of Persia Classic offers another chance to play the first entry in the series, albeit a remade version ported from Xbox Live.

This remake features updated characters and a several gameplay elements from PlayStation 2 hit Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.

Assassin's Creed: Rearmed

The first new iOS title in the Assassin's Creed franchise is already available in Canada, but it will roll out across the world later this year.

You're pitted against other assassins in a crowded town square, and tasked with killing them before they get to you first. You can check out Pocket Gamer's hands-on for more info about this one.

Assassin's Creed: Recollection

Ubisoft has announced that it's bringing another title set in the Assassin's Creed universe to Apple's App Store, in the form of a real-time card game called Recollection.

Designed for the iPad, Assassin's Creed: Recollection will feature 20 missions and around ten hours of single-player gameplay. A multiplayer mode will also be available. Don't forget to check out our hands-on.
