Developer Sanzaru Games has announced today that the new game, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, will not be exclusively available on the PlayStation 3. According to the statement released on the PlayStation Blog, there will be a version available for the PlayStation Vita. The game will launch at the same time as the PS3 version later this fall.
According to a recent article I read on GameSpot, the president of Sanzaru Games, Glen Egan, said that Sly Copper: Thieves in Time for the PS Vita, will “contain system-specific features that make use of the front and rear touch screens, as well as the device’s motion controls”. The game will also have cross-save support that will allow player to save their progress on either the PS3 or PS Vita version and pick it up on either device. So you can stop the game and then pick it up when you on the go, that’s pretty awesome.
The game will pick up after events of 2005’s PlayStation 2 game Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves. In this game Sly, as the title hints, is traveling through time to meet his ancestors.
