The rotoscoping used for The Prince came from tracing the movements of Jordan Mechner's 15-year-old brother as he performed each move that The Prince could perform in the game while wearing white clothing similar to that of The Prince.
This was the first video game to use rotoscoping, where animators traced live action movement, frame by frame, for use in animation.
This enhanced version of Prince of Persia (1989) not only features graphical and aural improvements, but also has a full musical score, boss battles, eight additional levels, and an extended time limit to complete the game (two hours versus one hour in the original game). Also, many aspects of the original twelve levels have been redesigned including new traps and pathways.
The Japanese version had a prologue sequence which showed the Prince getting captured and beaten. This was removed from the American and European versions of the game.
