Everyone’s favorite raccoon thief is back in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. Fans of the original series can get reacquainted with the gang — Carmelita, Bentley and Murray. Since burglary is usually a stealth-oriented affair you can choose to stick to rooftops and shadows, or if you’re feeling a bit more aggressive you can take a more head-on approach with your trusty cane. Bonus — Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is a cross-buy title, so Plus members will get both the PS3 and Vita versions.
On what is considered the most romantic day of the year, we thought we would check in with our favorite raccoon, Sly Cooper, and the object of his affection, Inspector Carmelita Fox.
As we all know, the path to true love can be rough — it definitely seems that way for these two. Having a history that goes way back, Carmelita has chased the master thief across the globe, though Sly has always managed to escape her clutches before she could deliver him to justice.
Working on opposite sides of the law seems to have finally taken its toll on Carmelita, who — judging by this video — has given up on Sly altogether and is looking for a new love.
It’s another big week for the PlayStation Store. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time releases today, and it’s part of our Cross-Buy promotion, so if you purchase the PS3 version you’ll receive the PS Vita version entitlement as a bonus! Of course, Sly isn’t the only thing launching today – Dead Space 3 is also out on the store for all you action/horror fans.
There’s a cool app releasing on PS Vita today – the PlayStation Home Arcade app. This app allows you to download and play classic arcade titles from the likes of Atari, Konami and Intellivision on your PS Vita.
The day has finally arrived! Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time goes on sale today in North America. We are so stoked with how the game came together; this is a very proud moment for the whole team! The game is available at retail, and also as a download from PlayStation Network. You can get the PS3 version for $39.99, which includes the digital PS Vita version at no additional cost, or you can purchase the standalone PS Vita version for $29.99.
We are so happy that players can finally experience the joy of Salim al Kupar’s carpet ride and Tennessee Kid’s Crack Shot as they follow the gang’s adventure, twisting and turning through space and time.
When Ghostbot was first approached by Sanzaru to work on the next installment of Sly Cooper, I had to do a double take. I was already a big fan of the original games, and I couldn’t believe what a great honor it was to have an opportunity to work on it. Being a lifelong gamer myself, I have a lot of respect for Sucker Punch and the Sly Cooper story. There are legions of devoted Sly fans, so we wanted to make sure our addition to Sly’s journey respected the fun and charm of the original games. At the same time, we wanted to push the quality of the art and animation to the next level as well as bring the audience something they hadn’t seen before.
Working on the 2D cinematics for the game with Sanzaru was loads of fun. One of our goals was to convey the twists and turns of their story in an entertaining way. We also wanted to inject some real thought and dimension into each character’s personality.
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.
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.
Whether for a bounty of candy to induce a wonderfully gluttonous sugar coma, or simply to transform ourselves like Sly Cooper into The Amazing Cooperoni, Halloween’s magical powers never fails at making us all feel incredible for one night.
Our master thief raccoon, Sly Cooper, and his pals Murray, Bentley and Carmelita may not need Halloween to hoodwink others but they do fancy concealing their real identities to pull off some of the greatest heists in history. Check out the stealthiest Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time trailer yet, just in time for Halloween.
You’ll catch a glimpse of the different get-ups Sly acquires in each time period to blend in. Each costume has its own special abilities to solve puzzles, reach new areas and kill enemies.
