The PlayStation Blog recently had a chance to visit Sanzaru Games and spend time with their first foray in the Sly Cooper universe with Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. They also had a chance to speak with the studio’s President, Glen Egan, on camera about the game itself.
That’s exactly what you see in the clip above. Mished and mashed between moments of in-game footage is a little explanation from Egan. Thieves in Time will see players take on more than just the role of Sly Cooper and his crew. Players will play as Sly’s ancestors as he, we assume, learns more and more by way of time travel and the series’ famous Thievius Raccoonus.
Sly Cooper was originally a franchise run by Sucker Punch Productions (recently responsible for inFamous and inFamous 2). Sanzaru Games handled the porting of the Sly Cooper trilogy to the PlayStation 3. From there they were granted the task of creating this upcoming entry, Thieves in Time, as a direct follow-up to Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves.
If you head to the source link below, the folks at the PlayStation Blog have a bit of a hands-on preview of the game with impressions.
Currently, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is set to release later this year. No exact launch date has been announced. As more comes for the game, including assets or release date news, we’ll have it.
