HD Sly Collection gets split up for for PSN release

Having 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 investment.

“When 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! For shame.

Anywho, the HD Collection will apparently hit PSN fairly soon, which should tide fans over until the 2012 release of Sly 4.

    Um, you say Sanzaru took over from Naughty Dog in the second segment, don't you mean Sucker Punch? It's nice that you can get each game separately, but I'd figure you can get the disc for $20 or so now. I got mine right away, so I paid $40, but after all this time it should be cheaper, but even at $30 it's a decent deal.

    Wasn't it Sucker Punch they took the series from? Article says Naughty Dog :P
