81w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a demo video today of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time for the PS Vita handheld console below.
To quote: You've probably seen the news: Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time doesn't just mark Sly Cooper's first full-length adventure on the PS3 - it'll be his first appearance on PlayStation Vita as well.
We invited Thieves in Time's Lead Designer Matt Kraemer and Sanzaru CEO Glen Egan into the studio for a deep conversation about bringing Sly, Murray, Carmelita, and the gang to PS3 and PS Vita in yesterday's edition of the PlayStation Blogcast (click here to listen). But maybe you just wanna see what Sly looks like on PS Vita. We understand.
So here's a video of Egan demoing some of the PS Vita-specific features you'll find when Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time drops this Fall:
We'll show you more of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time on our PlayStation E3 Livestream, starting Monday, June 4th at 5:30 pm Pacific/8:30 pm Eastern.
82w ago - Sanzaru Games President Glen Egan has revealed news of a PS Vita port and Carmelita gameplay today for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time with details below.
To quote: We recently joined Spike's Geoff Keighley on the latest episode of GTTV tonight to show off some cool new Carmelita gameplay in addition to a very special announcement: Sly Cooper is coming to PS Vita this fall!
First off, a look at new gameplay. As every Sly fan knows, Sly Cooper and Carmelita Fox have a long and torrid history - a history that's destined to continue in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.
The game picks up where Sly 3 left off, and Sly is feigning amnesia so he can be with the love of his life, Carmelita. But when he rejoins the Cooper Gang on their time-traveling escapade to restore his family's legacy, you can be sure Carmelita will quickly become embroiled in their wild adventure.
Carmelita is radiant on the PS3, and the powerful graphics hardware allowed us to make her much more detailed and expressive than in the past titles on PS2. She is, of course, a fully playable character in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and so we also spent a lot of time evolving her gameplay.
93w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with some fresh video footage on Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time below.
To quote: Earlier this week, Rey and I visited Foster City-based Sanzaru Games, the developers of this fall's Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.
As the first original PS3 entry in the classic PS2 thieving series, and the first to be developed outside of Sucker Punch Studios, Thieves in Time represents a long-awaited return to form as well as a natural entry point for series newcomers.
Where Sly 2 and Sly 3 let you slip into the roles of Sly's partners in crime, Thieves in Time expands upon that concept by granting you control of Sly's infamous ancestors - the Cooper Clan members named in the hallowed pages of the Thievius Racoonus. In one chapter set in ancient Japan, I played as Riochi, Sly's sushi-slinging ninja ancestor.
Slinking past sleeping guards while searching for a special set of sushi knives, I used Riochi's Leaping Dragon ability to soar through laser fences and other high-tech traps designed to derail the Cooper Clan's devious destiny.
Other playable ancestors, including the medieval...
108w ago - Sanzaru Games President Glen Egan has officially introduced Ninja Master Rioichi Cooper from Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time today.
To quote: We have hunkered down to concentrate on making Sly Cooper: Thieves in Times the best game of 2012!
Over the summer, I spent a lot of time showing our progress on the game and talking about how we are making sure we stay true to the core of the Sly Cooper series - but now I want to start talking about the NEW things we are bringing to Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.
When we played the old Sly Cooper games on the PS2, we loved the stories about the Cooper clan ancestors and their various thieving abilities. Something that is really exciting and fun for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is that you can not only travel back in time to meet these ancestors but you will also have the ability to play as the Cooper Clan ancestors!
As you proceed through the game each episode you encounter features a new time period with a new playable ancestor. Each new member of the Cooper clan has their own unique and powerful abilities that opens up a whole new range of game play in the huge environments.
This is one of the coolest aspects of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time - meeting these characters, learning more about them, and then getting to experience...
130w ago - Today Sanzaru Games President Glen Egan has posted up a new Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time for PS3 from this year's E3 Expo.
To quote: I wanted to thank everyone for the great reception we received at E3 when we announced the next installment of the Sly Cooper franchise, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, which will come to the PlayStation 3 in 2012.
In case you missed it last week, here's a broadcast segment we did with the PlayStation.blog live from the SCEA booth on the E3 show floor. We knew Jeff Rubenstein was a big fan of the series and this was the first time he had a chance to see what we had been up to. He had a bunch of great questions for us, and a bunch more that we'll be answering over the next few months!
Seven of us founded Sanzaru Games back at the beginning of 2007 and since then we have been hard at work, steadily increasing the size and quality of the games we work on. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will be our third game with SCEA; last year we released The Sly Collection for the PS3.
It's been great to work with the SCEA world class production team behind Ratchet & Clank, Jak and Daxter, inFAMOUS, UNCHARTED, Resistance and, of course, The Sly Cooper series!
