Sly Cooper Finally Makes His PS3 Thieving Debut Next Year

It has taken far too long, but finally the thieving raccoon master, Sly Cooper, is making a star appearance on the PS3.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, AKA Sly 4, will be out in 2012, and promises to be the franchise’s “biggest and most ambitious game yet with completely re-designed characters, worlds two times the size of those on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, more vibrant and dense environments, and real-world physics allowing for a realistic gameplay experience.”

The only cause for concern is the fact that Sucker Punch is NOT developing the game. Sanzaru Games is, and while that studio did a great job on The Sly Collection, it’s still always a sad day when a beloved franchise loses its original developer.

Regardless of the developer, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time should be one grand combo of stealth, thievery, humor, platforming and time traveling when it sneaks onto PS3 next year.
