inFamous Demo Shows Sly Cooper 4
So how many of you have sampled the inFamous demo? Having fun? ...did you happen to notice anything interesting when you were out exploring the environment?
As shown at Tawkn, there's something intriguing playing over at the Cineperplexed Theater: Sly Cooper 4! Last year, when we heard that Sucker Punch was working on a new game, we thought it would be a new entry in their popular and critically acclaimed platforming franchise. Well, we were wrong about that; it turned out to be inFamous. But Sly Cooper was such a positive series for the developer; it seemed a little strange that they would abandon it entirely. This evidence isn't exactly an official confirmation, but it's a damn good indication that fans of the series will get a next-gen iteration of the clever raccoon. If you're not familiar, these games fell under the shadow of the Jak and Ratchet and Clank franchises on the PS2, but those who followed the platforming category closely were quite familiar with Sly Cooper, which always boasted solid mechanics and engaging overall gameplay. Sucker Punch appears to have proved themselves beyond a shadow of a doubt with inFamous, so why not return to the series that really made them special in the eyes of most gamers?
Anyway, we'll let you know if we find any other news for Sly Cooper 4. It's very likely to be the team's next project and who knows; maybe they've been working on it in secret for quite some time already...
