Sony has announced their upcoming stealth/platformer Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (That’s Sly 4, for those keeping track) will be coming out for the PS Vita alongside its PS3 release later this year. The game is being developed by Sanzaru Games, who handled the HD conversion of the Sly Cooper Trilogy.
The PS Vita version of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will include gyroscopic controls for certain sections. Based on the announcement trailer, this didn’t look gimmicky like Nathan Drake standing in front of a curtain for several seconds until players could painstakingly slash an opening in the fabric (ugh).
Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Vita will feature a cross-save feature where you can transfer (or transfar if you’re Hideo Kojima) your data between the portable and console versions of the game. It’s unknown if buying one version will grant access to the other, but given how much of the Vita’s library is simply overpriced ports, we wouldn’t hold our breath on that.
