[E3 2010] PS2 Sly Cooper Trilogy Gets Remastered in HD

Sucker Punch’s Sly Cooper series from the PS2 is often forgotten about when people debate the greats of the platforming genre, and that’s really sad, because in my opinion the Sly Cooper games are three of the purest platform romps I’ve ever played, right up there with any of the Mario titles.

While I’m still waiting for Sucker Punch to finally get around to a proper PS3 sequel, Sony is at least offering the next best thing, that next best thing being an all-in-on remake compilation for the PS3!

The Sly Collection, announced in passing during Sony’s E3 press event, gives the God of War Collection treatment to the Sly Cooper franchise, compiling the complete PS2 trilogy — Sly Cooper and the Thievius Racconus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves — onto one Blu-ray disc. Better yet, all three games will feature remastered HD graphics, Trophy support and revamped mini-games designed for the PlayStation Move. Sly 3 will even support stereoscopic 3D.

Sanzaru Games has been tasked with the remastering duties while Sucker Punch works on inFamous 2. Watch for The Sly Collection this fall.

Now if only we could get a Shadow of the Colossus / ICO HD collection…
