If you have played any Metroidvania type of game before, you know it requires a lot of backtracking to reach certain places. Another common theme in such games is, as you progress further, you often get means to access areas in older locations that you previously couldn’t. This is exactly the case with Prince of Persia The Lost Crown. You need to use the Lost key if you want to use the elevator that takes you to the hidden floor. Don’t worry if this sounds too much, here is a full breakdown of what this key does, where to find it, and how to use it.
What does the Lost Key do in Prince of Persia The Lost Crown?
As per its item description, it “Provides access to a hidden floor in the Citadel elevator.” Now, this description doesn’t spell out the answer but it at least gives us a clue about having to use it on an elevator. The good thing is, accessing this floor unlocks the Hidden Room achievement. So one thing is for sure your effort won’t be entirely wasted on something trivial.
