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!

Any hope for us seeing the HD Collection to be ported to the Vita? I’d be glad to buy them individually on the PlayStation Store.

Details about the demo in January? *add expletive* By then I’ll have moved back to my student flat which has neither tv nor PS3, so looks like I’ll never get to play the demo. Of course I’m still going to buy the game and all, but I’m really disappointed! Would have been a nice present to us to release the demo in December, what with the holiday season and all. D: I suppose it’s useless to ask for it? I’m sure there are a lot of people who share my sentiments! I won’t get to play the full game until May… T____T Pretty please? At least you could maybe give us all the early demo some people in the USA got?

Who won the contest? When will you inform us about? It has been months!

    Unfortunately we will not be releasing a collectors edition for the title.

1 question: i hear that this game will be crossplay, but does this work like sound shap? where you buy 1 version and you get both ps3 and psv, or like allstar battle where the cross buy only work for ps3 version?


+ Elvick_ on December 13th, 2012 at 5:30 pm said:

@55: Like Battle Royale.


+ Zackbeatle64 on December 13th, 2012 at 6:02 pm said:

I had a couple of questions to ask

1. I don’t have a Vita and I want to get one to play Thieves in Time on the go, will there be some sort of Sly Vita bundle like they did for Call of Duty Declassified and Assassin’s Creed Liberations?

2. Will you release the soundtrack on a CD or mp3 like they did with Sly 3?

3. Is there any way I can get one of those sweet Sly t-shirts with the Sly logo on the front and the Sanzaru logo on the sleeves??


+ RE_Player on December 13th, 2012 at 6:24 pm said:

I still have to finish up Sly 3 but I am so excited for this game. I think the Sly series fits so well as a console and handheld experience so looking forward to the cross-buy option.

@6 & 9 Doesn’t matter about teh cover art, but the game isn’t that childish. Played it many times already on ps2 and again on PS3. I own Sly 1-3 on PS2, and picked up Sly Collection on Black Friday last month.

@21 Read the response to #17.

@42 Keep dreaming.

@44 Sly 2 & 3 had flashbacks to previous games

@51 No dice.

@52 The early demo was included with Ratchet & Clank collection. Sly 4 Fan pages on Facebook sometimes have those codes to give away. The January demo is a rumor…or is it?

@53 Who knows?

@55 As #56 had said, you get the Vita version for free with the PS3 version

@57 1. No idea.
2. Not sure
3. Don’t think so

@58 Sly 1-3 came out on PS2 before it came out on PS3

To anyone who asks about Sly 4 on PS2, its never gonna happen. Sly 4 is coming for PS3 & Vita only, PS2 is outdated now.

Hi Caley, I love Sly’s new look and I can’t wait to play the game when it comes out in Sweden. But I have some questions.
1: Is Dimitri going to be a playable character?
2: What kind of demo are you guys going to release? (like a few missions demo or a level demo?)
3: Will there be any DLC in the future after the game’s been released?
4: Any new ancestor gameplay coming up?

Also thank you for bringing back the best game series ever.


+ zakdude100 on December 14th, 2012 at 2:06 am said:

Few questions for ya Caley:
1)What happened to the treasure contest winners for america?
2)Can we expect to see a “issue of sly cooper #3” (like they did for the other games)?
3) what about Sanzaru and Sly 5? do you have any plans? i’d really like to play as slytunkhamen II, and not just as a extra character skin.
4)Will the IGN preview be available afterwards? because im on holiday next week so ill miss it :(
5)so just to confirm, there will be No Online multi-player in thieves in time?

thanks in advance


+ zakdude100 on December 14th, 2012 at 2:53 am said:

oh yea one more question
6) will Sly have any of his powerups from sly 1, like the explosive hat, electric ball roll, stun and thief replica techniques?
again, thanks


+ The_Dukenator on December 14th, 2012 at 6:47 am said:

@60 1) We’ll see.
2) No idea.
3) No idea
4) Maybe

@61 & 62
1) Legal issue
2) Who knows?.
3) We’ll see.
4) Not sure if IGN preview will have it available after its over.
5) Sly has never had online multiplayer
6) Sly has evolved since the first game, so who knows what’s in store.


+ Crunchvx on December 14th, 2012 at 7:03 am said:


I have a couple questions that I was wondering what could be answer.

1)I know Sucker Punch have overseen Thieves in time what is there role and what do they think of Sly 4?

2)Sanzaru games from what they have shown of the game it looks great and I am looking forward to I just have one problem that is cutscenes is there a chance before the game is relased that Sucker punch could fix Sly’s face apart from that the cutscene’s are fine?

3)If Sly 4 does well is there a possibility of Sly becoming a big franchise and is there a chance that both Sucker Punch and Sanzaru games co-develop a Sly game.

Pre-ordered it’s been some time…if its Sly count me in…can’t wait.Also Rioichi has been by far my fav Sly ancestral,can’t wait to play with him.


+ mr_sailorman on December 14th, 2012 at 11:25 am said:

@The_Dukenator: mr Caley Roberts said in the previous page that they’d give more details about the demo in January, that’s what I was talking about. Really disappointed if true, I’ll leave again 4th of January so there’s no way the demo will ariive by then!


+ Thunderbird91 on December 15th, 2012 at 1:42 am said:

The pre-order link doesn’t mention a digital option. I remember a post from awhile back saying that a digital pre-order would be possible, any word on that?


+ Ironsides-2-50 on December 15th, 2012 at 4:51 am said:

+ EpicMickey22 on December 20th, 2012 at 2:56 pm said:

I would just like to thak Sanzaru for all the hard work that they put into this. It looks great, and I KNOW that it will break the “curse” that is supposed to continue with Thieves in Time.
