It's kind of mind blowing, but Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is out today. It has been almost eight years since the release of Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, but at the same time it doesn't really feel like it's coming out. Considering we've heard more about Sly being a playable character in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale than his own game, maybe it was a marketing fumble. Doesn't change the fact that Sly 4 is out now, and it looks great.
Considering we're kind of in a lull when it comes to platformers with classic sensibilities, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time should be a breath of fresh air. With vibrant colors and wonderfully realized environments, and an assortment of clever puzzles and platforming, Sly Cooper is the sort of title that delivers simple and rewarding fun.
Check out the game's launch trailer and a ton of launch screenshots below and think about whether Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is the game for you. It's unfortunate that it didn't get the visibility it really deserved prior to launch, but now that it's out maybe it'll catch some eyes.
