PlayStation Celebrates Sly Cooper’s 20th Anniversary With New Merch
PlayStation is currently celebrating Sly Cooper’s 20th anniversary with new merch and a tomfoolery blog entry. Sly Cooper is a pretty pivotal PlayStation franchise, despite the fact it has laid dormant for a really long time. Although it’s a series of great games, perhaps its biggest achievement is helping put engineer Sucker Punch on the guide. Thanks to the success of the Sly Cooper series, Sucker Punch went on to go improve even games like Infamous and Ghost of Tsushima. Both have been pillars of PlayStation with the latter in any event, getting a film adaptation, though it’s muddled when it will try and release.
Nevertheless, Sly Cooper itself is held profoundly by many fans and is a darling franchise that has figured out how to be worth standing toe to toe with Sucker Puncher’s other games. The series turned 20 today and Sucker Punch took to the PlayStation Blog to celebrate. Some of the developers of the game thought back on their fondest memory of the game and offered some behind the scenes tidbits about how it all met up. They’re worth a read, so go to the blog entry and give it a look. There is more, though! The team uncovered a new piece of artwork from Sly Cooper art director Dev Madan that is jam loaded with Easter eggs and it’s being sold in various formats and sizes so you can balance it up on your wall. Limited edition art prints will be sold at Cook and Becker for between $120 and $225 depending on the version you purchase. A new t-shirt with new art of Bentley, Murray, Carmelita Fox and Sly and all the more importantly, a new 9-inch plushie of Sly Cooper himself have also been uncovered. The plush doll even includes a little cane that magnetizes to Sly’s hand.
The plush will be accessible sometime next year at Fangamer and a poster of the aforementioned artwork and t-shirt will be sold on the PlayStation Stuff store. Those items will also ship starting in December. As of right now, it seems like Sly Cooper will continue to lay dormant. Recently, Sucker Punch squashed rumors that Sly Cooper and Infamous were going to make a return on PS5, but there are currently no plans for such things.
What are some of your favorite Sly Cooper memories?
