Sly Cooper has been lurking around the edges of the PlayStation brand this generation having appeared in just a PlayStation 3 high definition compilation collection of his PlayStation 2 adventures and starring in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, but it's been a long time since the thieving raccoon has starred in an all-new adventure. The next true sequel, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is headed to the PS3 and PlayStation Vita early next year, so to help pump up the marketing push, Sony and developer Sanzaru Games have put together a short trailer to reintroduce Sly and his cohorts Bentley and Murray to the audience. Watch and remember why these characters are so much fun.
If the Thieves demo is anything to judge by, I'd say that this title is in good hands. Nicole and I have been playing the original Sly trilogy in our spare weekend time. It's her first time through the games and my first replay. We're just past the halfway point on Sly 2: Band of Thieves now, so we'd better pick up the pace if we're going to finish the collection before the new sequel hits in February.
