Happy Holidays from Sanzaru Games

Glen Egan's Avatar + Posted by Glen Egan on Dec 27, 2011 // President, Sanzaru Games

Hi there, we wanted to take the time to thank everybody that wrote to us over the course of the year. We love all the mail we get with your suggestions, fan art and questions! So here is a brief video with Mat and I showing off some of the great art and answering some of the letters that we’ve received from the fans since we announced Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

Thank you all so much again – keep the letters coming, everybody here loves to read them. 2012 will be a big year for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, so stay tuned!

Very timely, as far as I’m concerned. Been taking advantage of the post-holiday lull to catch up on the downloadable Sly games, which have blown me away with how good they are (Platinumed on the first one, working on 2 now). Definitely looking forward to 4, though hope you folks are giving yourselves a bit of a break for the holidays. See you in 2012

So far I think this is my only must buy on release title for the year (maybe Rainbow Moon for PSN). To be fair to other games being developed the bar has been raised significantly by a crazy work schedule. :)

You guys should be proud, this year only LBP2 and Portal 2 got the honor (man, that sounds egotistical). Enjoy the holidays, then *whip crack* get back to slaving!

Can’t wait for a break to actually watch the video!

Hope you guys had a nice Christmas. This time last year I was playing the excellent Sly Collection, which I still feel is the best HD Collection out there.

You guys are awesome! Can’t wait for Sly 4 next year!

Will Dimitri, Panda King, Penelope and Guru be FULLY playable? Have you possibly thought about adding in a plot twist where Carmelita is forced to join the gang? Are you bringing back any characters from1-3 such as maybe Neyla. Will there be gameplay or screenshots released for other ancestors soon?! Please Sanzaru keep up the good work we REALLY want this game…oh and one more thing….PLEASE RELEASE A DEMO ON PSN SOON!!!!!

Thanks for the post Glen! You probably don’t remember, but I ran into you at the Takoyaki place in San Mateo a few months back. Never got to say thanks for being really awesome and actually chatting it up with me! Now if only you can give me a tour of Sanzaru HQ ;) Keep up the good work guys, can’t wait until Sly 4!

Happy Holidays for all the Sanzaru games Team you guys deserve due to the great work woth sly !
To be honest this is the first time im waiting so longer for a game ^^ and its exciting.
I was expecting a rioichi cooper gameplay video before the new year comes but whatever… thats a good video showing that Sanzaru games pays a lot of attention to the fans.
Video comments: So, ye its normal you guys have to make bentley appear in a whellchair since this is a continuation of sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, but if yous guys wonder a way to get bentley walk again here is, on the end of this game bentley could use the time machine to prevent clock-la puting him handicaped and on the next (possiblity i hope ^^) game we could experience a new Bentley walking once again.
To the Colector’s edition if that happens… it could contain, a sly thief mask, sly’s can, the game, and a book similiar to the Thivius Racconus(i think this book would rly stay cool on it since the game is focused on gathering once again the pages of the thivius racconus).
And that’s all i hope i helped with some ideas.
Wish you Sanzaru games a good christmas and a happy new year
2012 is Sanzaru year :)

+ BalramRules on December 27th, 2011 at 1:05 pm said:

@Comment 15
That’s a terrific idea, and I hope Sanzaru Games see this idea, coz I really want Bentley to be able to walk again, perhaps he could have a new range of gadgets, rather than having that classic wheelchair we’ve all become used to, and cliche’d.
Maybe he could have rocket boots, and bouncing boots jumping everywhere, to majestic heights, and flyin’ if we get carried away a bit x))

+ slydaniels on December 27th, 2011 at 1:43 pm said:

Hey Glen and Mat happy holidays to you as well. The fan art wall looks really cool.

As for the collectors edition…where did I put that megaphone?


19

+ XxRct3fan00xX on December 27th, 2011 at 1:57 pm said:

Quick question… Please answer…

I have been DYING to know if we will even AT LEAST see Sly’s father in this game… it’d be even better to play as him. Maybe even do some missions with McSweeny and Dr. M when they were friends.

And as for Collectors Edition… I would like for all Sly fans reading this to check out my video I posted on youtube! It’s a petition I started for a CE for Thieves in Time, I want to send it to Sony A.S.A. I get a lot of Sign up.s Check the links out here! :)

Happy Holidays and thank you for being big enough fans of the Sly Cooper Universe to actually put some work into making a new game for the series. 2012 is going to be a great year for gaming and I am anticipating the arrival of Sly 4.
2 quick questions: 1) I know that we are going back in time, but will there ever be a point where the Sly Gang go forward? Seeing the future would be pretty interesting, as long as there aren’t any time paradoxes… And 2) Have you guys thought of a co-op heist mode using the Sly Gang or just random avatars. ‘Cops and Robbers’ almost. Single player narrative is awesome, but I was only wondering if co-op ever came up in the discussion for the new game.
And finally, to Sony. COLLECTOR’S EDITION, COLLECTOR’S EDITION, COLLECTOR’S EDITION, COLLECTOR’S EDITION, COLLECTOR’S EDITION!!! I don’t think any of us fans could stress that enough. I got money, I want you to take it!

Merry Christmas to all the people here :D

+ Solemn_In_Berlin on December 27th, 2011 at 7:43 pm said:

We all know that a collector’s edition is inevitable but please, Sony, make the limited run actually… limited. Don’t overprice it, either. You can buy a Killzone 3 Helghast Edition for like $30 nowadays and it’s a pity because that was cream-of-the-crop in terms of collector’s edition boxsets. The problem? Quantities were too overwhelming and the MSRP of $130 was too expensive for some. I’m proud to say that I own 1 of 1000-only Limited Helghast Editions.

So if ever the Thieves in Time Collector’s Edition will be as attractive a CE as the Killzone 3 Helghast Edition, the Killzone 3 Limited Helghast Edition, the Resistance 3 Survivor Edition, the Infamous 2 Hero Edition, Uncharted 3 Explorer Edition, LittleBigPlanet 2 Collector’s Edition and all the other great CEs you released this year alone, make it TRULY limited. That would maximize profits and everyone would be happy.

Good luck this 2012! 2011 was supposed to be our year. But I supposed that, the time is now.

Happy Holidays to everyone at Sanzaru! :D

Super duper quick question! What is Sanzuru’s email address? I can’t find one on the website besides the job one and sending a letter isn’t that convenient since I live in the UK

+ wyatt11295 on December 28th, 2011 at 7:11 pm said:

Also one more question! Im a big fan of WWI,WWII aireal combat games/facts, any chance that we will see Thadius Cooper in THIEVS IN TIME? AKA probrabley a dumb question since you can most likely not answer it in the stage that the game is in.P.S loved the Holland dog fight job in the collection.

I’m back. Happy holidays and a happy new year to you guys at Sanzaru. Got some questions again.
1. Are you guys not giving a specific release date because you don’t know when you’ll be finished with the game?
2. Is Bentley still in a wheelchair? If he is, can you guys add some more gadgets to it?
3. Will Penelope be in the game?

Thank you.

+ VideoGamer35 on December 30th, 2011 at 3:23 am said:

oh and I’m sorry to be saying this, but can i ask you a few questions?

1) are you going to release an OST (or a vocal track)?

2)can you add online multiplayer, pretty please?

3) is Sly going to learn new moves that weren’t written in the Thievious Raccoonus from his ancestors?

4)maybe release some new screens shots or a new trailer would be better?

5) reveal some new characters and ancestors?

thanks guys you’re the best!

EVERYONE WHO IS READING THIS PLEASE CONTINUE!

Hello, as I stated again above, many people want a CE for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. A few comments stated that! So look, I started a petition 2 days ago, and as of right this second, I have 95 signs for my petition. It is a petition for a CE for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. I already have about 400 views on my video that was uploaded not long ago at all! Barely 2 days! And almost 100 signs for my petition. If we get a lot of people to sign it, and if I show Sony and or Sanzaru Games, there’s no doubt we’ll get a CE because so many fans are requesting it! So spread the word! Make some online noise! On my video! Show people my video, email Sly fans the link to the petition! Check it out!

http:// www. youtube. com/ watch?v=SPFbEHussCY

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ – Take out the spaces. The petition link is in the video.

Read what it says then sign! (FYI: When you sign, after it probably will say to donate some certain amount of money, ignore that, your vote has already been casted, it is an optional donation. Just move on.) Check out my blog post too to email and bug Sony about it! And check out the signatures to see how many people voted and what they said! :D spread it!

OOH! could you guys add some of the obscure realatives like B.F. Cooper or Rob McCooper? Here’s a page of all of the known Cooper Clan members http://slycooper.wikia.com/wiki/Cooper_Clan . Or could we meet Sly’s younger or older self? That would be so cool! Here’s what I think B.F. Cooper would look like http://spyro9.deviantart.com/art/B-F-Cooper-276927017 .

It’s 2012, Sanzaru! You know what that means…you gotta say the release date for the game now! Still waiting for new gameplay, pictures, another trailer, the identity of “The Collector”, the release date, Bentley and Murray gameplay, the revealing of another Sly ancestor, how to collect treasures, if Carmelita is in the game, if you guys will be on the cover of a GameInformer, and many, many other questions that need answering. Keep doing what you’re doing!
