Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time™ Coming To PlayStation® Vita

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today announced Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the  all-new action adventure starring master thief Sly Cooper will be available on PlayStation ®3 (PS3) and PlayStation ®Vita (PS Vita), a first for the Sly Cooper franchise.

Developed by Sanzaru Games, the team behind The Sly Collection for PS3, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is the latest title to take advantage of Cross-Save between PS Vita and PS3. Cloud-based saving allows players to seamlessly transition from gaming at home to on to go by saving the game on one console and resuming from exactly where they left off on another.

The game also makes full use of the PS Vita gyro controls allowing players to tilt and steer their way through this enchanting journey.Dual-analog controls add even more depth to the gaming experience, meaning that playing on-the-go remains an uncompromised experience.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is the latest instalment of the critically-acclaimed franchise which sees Sly, a sneaky raccoon descendant of a long line of master thieves, embark on another mischievous journey with his loyal friends Murray and Bentley. The adventure will take players on a journey through history and across the globe packed with captivating puzzles and stealthy action all wrapped up in one epic Cooper Gang heist.

The action begins when pages from the Thievious Raccoonus, the precious book containing all the Cooper clan’s thievery tricks, start to disappear and Sly and the gang must travel back in time to save his ancestors and restore the secrets of the Cooper family.

Players can choose from a selection of  playable characters, each with their own unique style and humour before exploring seven brilliantly imaginative worlds, each full of enthralling and challenging tasks.
