Today, Sony has revealed that the awaited sequel in the Sly Cooper franchise will see a multiplatform release on not only the PlayStation 3 but the PlayStation Vita as well. Also announced was the return of Carmelita Fox as a playable character.
Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time takes place right after Sly 3, with Sly feigning amnesia so he can be with Carmelita. Sly rejoins the gang in a time-traveling adventure to restore the legacy of his family that sees Sly’s old rival and love interest, Carmelita Fox, get pulled in.
Sony has released some new screen shots that show off Carmelita in stunning high definition graphics. More detail and expression will be noticed in the character compared to the past titles. She has also been given over the shoulder aiming that will make for more precise aiming.
The big news is the announcement of the game for the PS Vita on the same day the PS3 version is released in the fall. The PS Vita version will see all the action from the PS3 version along with some functions made specifically for the system. The game will also be able to share saves across both systems so players can pick up where they leave off at home or on the go. With more and more titles being released on both systems this feature will be great for those looking to play their games anywhere and not have to worry about dealing with another save. This is great for people who are always out and may not always have the time to site down at home to play.
Fans of the Sly Cooper or owners of the PS Vita looking for some awesome times should definitely keep an eye out for this.
