Sony Reveals Sly Cooper 2
Sony has officially unveiled a sequel to the 2002 game Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. The sequel, Sly 2: Band of Thieves, has already been in development for 18 months at Sucker Punch, the Seattle-based developer that produced the original game. It's currently scheduled for release this fall.
Sly 2's story puts more of a focus on being a thief. The game is broken up into episodes, and each episode will culminate in a heist. You'll also have to contend with a secret gang known as CLAW. The leader of the gang is a lounge lizard named Dimitri, an art school dropout who has turned to a life of crime to punish people with bad style. Demitri's rackets revolve around forgery and counterfeiting.
This will no doubt be one of the titles Sony will be pushing at E3 this year, so check back when we've got hands on impressions of the game this May.
