Yuri Lowenthal, who was the voice behind the prince in the original game will reprise the role yet again. He is also the voice behind a long list of characters such as Insomniac’s Spiderman and Yusuke Hanumura in Persona 4. He has voiced characters in plenty of other games as well.

Even though he has voiced iconic and loved characters, he comes from a humble beginning where he was the voice of the prince in Prince of Persia. He told USA Today that “it was one of the greatest honors” to finally return to his role which in a way, launched him to success. Things seem to have come in full circle with Yuri.

He added, “When we did the first The Sands of Time, I may have done three to five recording sessions for the whole game, and that was my contribution.” He also said that he felt that he had rewound time. Finally, he said that there weren’t enough good things he could say about the experience.
