pulled a successful caper by remastering Sony's Sly Cooper Collection
for PS3 play, Sanzaru Games is dividing the loot for the
titles' PSN release. Sanzaru's HD reissues of the Sucker Punch series
have been issued with fresh individual PEGI ratings; details haven't
been released, but expect similar pricing to the HD God of War
reissues on PSN. And now that Sanzaru is the series' official
overseer, it's only enlisting ninja raccoons to protect its
we played the old Sly Cooper games,” explains Sanzaru head Glen Egan, “we loved the stories about the Cooper clan ancestors and
their various thieving abilities.” Which is why, when Sanzaru took
over the series from Sucker Punch, it immediately set to work developing those ancestors into playable characters.
The first to be revealed is Rioichi Cooper, Sly's ninja ancestor, who
Egan describes as “not only an uber-Ninja but is also the inventor
of sushi.” Really? Sushi was invented in Japan? This game about
time-traveling talking raccoon thieves is historically inaccurate!
Above: Gaze upon the profile of a falsifier of culinary history. Also he steals peoples' stuff, but whatever
the HD Collection will apparently hit PSN fairly soon, which should tide fans
over until the 2012 release of Sly 4.
