New Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Gameplay Video, Treasure Design Contest Winners

Cristian Cardona's Avatar + Posted by Cristian Cardona on Jan 09, 2013 // Associate Product Marketing Manager, Software Marketing

Happy New Year from the Sly gang! 2012 was full of fantastic gaming goodness. Hopefully you’ve found some favorites (I know I have – Persona 4 Golden, anyone?) that you’re still playing, but we’re sure you’re already looking ahead to what’s landing in 2013.

By the looks of it, 2013 is looking just as good with the upcoming release of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time! Sly and the gang are back on February 5th for $39.99 on PlayStation 3 and $29.99 on PS Vita. If you buy the PS3 copy, you’ll receive the digital PS Vita version from PSN at no additional cost.

Today we’re here to give you a taste of some of the new gameplay you’ll get to experience. In case you missed it, we had an IGN Live session right before the holidays, with Glen Egan and Mat Kraemer from Sanzaru Games showing off the first few hours of the game. In that preview you got a glimpse of some of the gameplay mechanics, Sly’s samurai costume, his Japanese ancestor Rioichi Cooper, and a look at one of the vibrant lush environments Sly will be visiting as he travels through time. In this new gameplay video below, you’ll get to see how the team works together to pull a heist on El Jefe, the epic boss you’ll meet during your travels to Feudal Japan.

This is just a slice of how the game is going to break down but there will be plenty to do aside from that, including earning all of the costumes — which you’ll be able to replay the game with to find new collectables and hidden treasures. Speaking of collectables, we’d like to take a minute to announce the winners of our Sly Cooper Treasure Design Contest! It’s been quite a while, but we finally got a hold of the winners and are happy to reveal the two winning designs. Both the items below and their descriptions will be included as collectable treasures in Thieves in Time:

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time - Cane Polish

–By Case M.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time - Cookie Jar

–By Jaime P.

We had tons of entries and the team had a tough time choosing these winners, but we want to make sure everyone got to see their designs! Big congrats as well to our runner-up winners, who were also notified. We hope you’ve been enjoying the fantastic prizes!

Bet you can’t wait to start playing, right? Well good news — we’ll be releasing a new downloadable demo, so you can get some hands-on time with Sly before the game hits store shelves. Starting January 22nd, the new demo will be available exclusively for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Then, on January 29th, it will be available publicly to all PSN users. For those of who got early access to the first Sly demo from the Ratchet & Clank Collection, this demo is brand new — so be sure to check this one out as well! Stay tuned for lots more on Sly as we head toward launch, and don’t forget to pre-order your copy today.

I’m a major fan of the Sly Cooper series so I’m happy to see that we’re going to be playing as Sly’s ancestors so since we already know of a few ancestors so will there be any more ancestors to be revealed soon?.
As we all remember from going through the Cooper Vault in Sly 3 that there are 10 big Coopers so will the characters Slytunkamen Cooper 2 , Otto Van Cooper , Slaigh MacCooper and Thaddeus Winslow Cooper 3 and Henriette “One Eye” Cooper as we already know that Rioichi Cooper , Sir Galleth Cooper , Salim al Kupar Cooper and “Tennessee Kid” Cooper are going to appear.

Definitely a day 1 purchase for me. Always was, even at $60. From the IGN previews I saw, this game seems to be packed with content and a lot more than other $60 games.

Very cool move. Since I play my Vita more I pre-ordered the stand alone Vita version at the original price of $39.99 feeling I wouldn’t really play it on PS3 that much and save some money, that version being $59.99 before. Now that $39.99 is the PS3 price and you get the Vita version as well I’ll get that one. Even if I still play the Vita version more it’s too good of a deal to pass up!!

Also, can we see the original artwork for the entries? I’d love to see some of the original artwork and original designs, as I’m sure the participants are super talented!

Okay I have never preordered a video game before. So if I preordered this a month ago from Wal-Mart when the price was still set at $60 will I be getting my $20 extra that I paid then back? I hope that makes sense.

Sanzaru had me sold day one for $60, but $40? Awesome.

Also, I know this doesn’t affect too many people, but I kinda wish for those of us that buy Cross Buy titles but don’t have a Vita that we could make use of the added content somehow. With R&C:FFA, I gave my Vita code to a friend. But for on disc stuff, it would be nice if you could choose to have the Vita game or opt for like PS Store credit for those that don’t have a Vita.

Either way, I’m buying day one. The Sly series, along with Jak, is my fave trilogy from the PS2 era and I’ve been looking forward to a Sly 4 for 8 years and counting, lol.

This post specifically says: “Starting January 22nd, the new demo will be available exclusively for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Then, on January 29th, it will be available publicly to all PSN users.” It is the 29th today, but the demo is still showing that only Plus subscribers can download it. Is there a certain time that this will change at? I really want to check out this demo.
