New Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Trailer Asks “Who is Sly?”

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

Happy Holidays, everyone!

The gift giving season is upon us, but we want to make sure that you’re thinking ahead — past the impending apocalypse and on to the upcoming release of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time!

Sneaking onto PlayStation 3 and PS Vita February 5th, 2013, the game is packed with all sorts of Sly Sweetness™. Not only does Sly Cooper support Cross Buy — which gives gamers who purchase the PS3 version of the title a digital download of the PS Vita version from PlayStation Network at no additional cost — it also includes Cross Save as well as some very cool AR functionality that lets you use your PS Vita to find treasures when playing the game on your PS3. We’ve also shown you how Sly’s costumes will allow him to complete challenging puzzles in a variety of stages throughout time.

But what about Sly? Who is Sly? Learn more about his predicament in this new Story Trailer:

We hope you liked this look into the game! We’ll have plenty more to show — including some (re)introductions to the rest of the gang — this January. Keep an eye on PS.Blog, and don’t forget to pre-order today to secure your early unlocks!

Excited for this. Hoping it turns out to be the first Cross-Buy retail title that is actually worth getting. Digital purchase day one!

Guys, what happened to the contest? I really want to know, say something.

I think u’ve said this before but can I reconfirm: Its only one trophy set shared between both games right. Only 1 platinum? And no matter what system you unlock trophies on they just unlock into that 1 set?
@3 ya what did happen to it?

    Hello Mako
    Yes that is correct one trophy set share between the Vita and PS3.

I love the heap of info you’ve been releasing.
And any chance we’ll get to see on screen Vita gameplay?

Never played any Sly on PS2, but when the HD Collection came, I picked up and I’m a big fan since!

When Thieves in Time got announced, I was a little worried, ’cause Sanzaru was in charge of the game instead of Sucker Punch, but now the worries’ gone!

Sanzaru, congrats for maintaining the feeling of the franchise alive, as well as the core mechanics. I know it should be hard to pickup a series you don’t created, but you guys have proven yourselfs. Hope Sony sign a contract so you guys can be responsible for Sly once Sucker Punch is busy with inFAMOUS.

Just a question: Did Sucker Punch helped with the production at some point or T in T is your little baby totally?

Best wishes!

    Sucker Punch and Sanzaru have worked closely together since The Sly Collection. Sucker Punch supplied comments and feedback on what Sanzaru has created and worked very early on to make sure we captured every nuance of a Sly Cooper game.

@4 Yes Sly 4 has 1 shared trophy list ie: Ratchet FFA / Retro City Rampage

really looking fwd. to the new Sly game … but it won’t be the first cross buy title to be worthy of purchase … we’ve had numerous hours of fun with PA All Stars & I have R & C FFA wrapped for Christmas, both of which are great cross buy games …to say nothing of digital cross titles like Zen Pinball2 & Hustle Kings ….
I love the cross buy perks.

PS: I really don’t like the box art. I think it’s not Sly style.

The actual is too childish.

A nice in depth Vita cross control video would be nice too!

+ Gadirok on December 13th, 2012 at 9:45 am said:

Sly, you gotta shave off that goatee ;)

So now that we are witnessing the return of sly, and ratchet never really left us, hows about bringing back Jak & Daxter on consoles?

The winners of the US Treasure Design Contest were never announced? Do you know when we can expect to hear about that?

I wish Jak & Daxter were to come back but honestly I really don’t see it happening. Pretty excited for Sly’s new game though.

    It is on the box but we are working to release the box cover as key art without all the logos as well as possibly making it into a theme for your ps3 and vita =)

+ TurismoM3 on December 13th, 2012 at 10:09 am said:

Looks really awesome. It makes we want to play the HD collection some more. Box art looks great too. You should also have reversible box art, it’s always a nice touch.

So happy to have Sly back! I bought the HD Collection recently and am playing through all three of the previous games again to get ready for Thieves in Time. It’s a day-one purchase for me.

+ sagohichi on December 13th, 2012 at 10:20 am said:

@6

The HD collection was made by Sanzaru.
Yes, and it’s a very interesting and touching story behind involvement of Sucker Punch and Sanzaru.
In short, Sanzaru was the biggest fan of Sly series, and they convinced SP to reboot the series. It’s not Sony’s top-down decision. Sanzaru contacted to SP with unofficial demo of TiT in order to show how much they love Sly. SP was blown away by the demo, and decided to make the sequel along with the HD remaster.
This game is Sanzaru’s love letter to the series.

+ Wozman23 on December 13th, 2012 at 10:31 am said:

Don’t listen to #9. I think this is one of the best pieces of cover art this generation.

It’s just a shame Sony keeps ruining the art with a permanent cross buy icon. I really wish it was just a sticker on the plastic wrap. That way I could remove it and experience every square inch of artsy goodness.

Can’t wait to get this game on Vita! Also, Merry Christmas to the Sly team too!

Question – will the Vita version of the game have a box version that we can buy in stores?

    Yes you can purchase the retail Vita version in stores for 39.99 on 2/5/2013 when the game is released.

+ RenderMonk on December 13th, 2012 at 11:09 am said:

I’m wondering if the reason why we haven’t heard anything about the contest, is because of the problem their site had with the ” 250 Character limit.” Remember they were saying there were legal issues as to why the winners haven’t been selected yet. Well, the official rules say we have 250 words or less to explain or design, but the site would only allow 250 characters. Big difference there. Wondering if some people are claiming they were robbed a win based on their description. I can’t remember for sure, but wasn’t the judging supposed to be something like 50% of points are based on the design and the other 50% on the description or something like that. I know I for one had an “ok” drawing of my design, but felt that my 250 WORD description sold the design better than my arts skills. But since we were only allowed 250 characters, my entry most likely quickly fell from the ranks. Anyway, just a thought. Really disappointed in the contest. Was so excited for the chance to be a part of the game (and of course the prizes) and all this waiting, and we’ll probably never know…..just disappointing.

    Yes Sucker Punch has played the game and they are very excited about all the hard work and dedication that Sanzaru has put into Sly Cooper:Thieves in Time. Sanzaru has really nailed the look and feel of Sly and I can promise it will show as you play the final product.

Caley, what graphical sacrifices have been made on the Vita version from the PS3? We still haven’t really seen footage for that version so I’m really curious. I have the game preordered and am really excited to play on both PS3 and Vita.

    I can tell you that Sly looks gorgeous on the LED Vita screen and that you will absolutely love Sly on your Vita. I think the biggest difference will be that Sly will run at a super smooth 30 frames per second while your PS3 will run at an ultra smooth 60 frames a second in 2D. Both will offer you a fantastic play experience and one of the best Sly story lines ever!
