Previously announced solely for the PlayStation 3, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will now be making its way to the PlayStation Vita, as well. It has also been revealed that the game will be released on both Sony platforms on the same day sometime during its planned fall release date.
Players will be able to save their game data via cloud storage and switch between the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions of Thieves in Time as they wish. This should make it a great deal of fun playing the heck out of the game at home and then transferring it over to the portable to get some out-of-the-house gaming done. It’s currently unknown whether the game needs to purchased for both platforms in order for this to work, but let’s hope that’s not the case, because really, it’s hard to imagine anyone buying a game twice just to switch between home console and handheld.
Sony has stated that the two versions of Thieves in Time will be identical. The dual analog layout of the Vita will allow players to have the same type of control that they would on the PlayStation 3. Additionally, the handheld version will utilize the Vita’s gyroscopic features. For example, some projectiles will be controlled by tilting the handheld.
It’s great to see a game like Thieves in Time landing on the Vita. Here’s hoping this paves the way for some more Sly Cooper titles on the handheld device down the road.
