Thieves Take Sly Cooper 4 Out Of 2012

Published

 on

Sly Cooper fans will have to wait a little bit longer for the full-fledged return of the rascally raccoon as Sony has today confirmed that his latest adventure, Thieves In Time, has been pushed into February 2013, as evidenced by the official GamesCom trailer embedded below. The reason for the delay was given that there is simply enough quality content slated for the holiday release season, and at least some should be reserved for the period following it. It’s a tad disappointing, but will give the developers at Sanzaru Games a few extra months to polish the game to its utmost potential.

In addition to this, the game has been announced to be among the first to support Sony’s new Cross-Buy promotion, meaning that they will receive a free copy of the game to download on the Vita if they purchase it on the PS3, or vice versa. Thankfully for the lucky American gamers out there this delay will not affect the inclusion of a demo for the game in The Ratchet and Clank Collection to be released later this month.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
