Sony has released an entertaining animated short from the Sly Cooper series as a prequel to the upcoming Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, releasing on PS Vita and PS3 next week in the States and at the end of March in Europe. The animated short is a bit of an overview, with some new material added in as a gap-filler between Sly 3 and the upcoming game. Read on for the short…

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is developed by Sanzaru Games, the studio who took on the job of the Sly Trilogy HD update, where they added HD and 3D support to the three original Sly titles. Sony and Sucker Punch (the original developers) were so impressed by the their handling of the upgrade that they were given the task of creating an entirely new Sly title for the PS3 and the PS VITA.

We will be bringing you a review of the game once it approaches the EU release – make sure you stay with us for all the updates!
