The return of Sly Cooper just got better.
The long-awaited new installment in the esteemed franchise hits the PlayStation 3 later this year. That much we know (and appreciate). But did you also know that Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is coming to the Vita as well?
As revealed at the PlayStation Blog , the portable version will launch alongside the console version, and Sanzaru Games president Glen Egan says the handheld iteration will boast system-specific features that utilize the front and rear touchscreens and the unit's motion control. Best of all, there's the cross-platform support feature, as players can switch between the PS3 and Vita (or vicey versey) and keep right on playing.
The Blog post also re-introduces us to Sly's lady friend, Carmelita, who will be playable in the game; she was in the PS2 titles as well, as the fans might remember. So when Thieves in Time arrives, you might have to pick it up for one platform and add the other platform's entry to the holiday list…
