Every mission in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time begins in a huge, sprawling world, so a moment’s recon saves alarm bells clanging later on. Whip your Binocucom out to case your surroundings and photograph items of interest, then send the intel back to Bentley for analysis to get a better idea of how to beat enemies and reach your goal.
One of your first tasks is to zap back to 17th century Japan, where a blade-wielding Tiger named El Jefe is holding your ancestor, Rioichi Cooper, hostage. After a spot of photo recon using the Binocucom, you’ll flit through the shadows, evading burly sentries and hawk-eyed archers, before searching for the pieces of a suit of armour that’ll help you infiltrate Rioichi’s jail.
It’s a taste of what lies ahead for Sly: observe the target, work out how to bypass defences, get your hands on a sneaky new costume then leave your enemies scratching their heads. With your ancestors rescued, each area is then yours to explore.
Double your efforts with the Cross-Save feature, which lets you continue your PS Vita experience on PS3, and vice versa. What’s more, Cross-Play turns your PS Vita into a treasure scanner. Make sure your PS Vita and PS3 systems are connected to the same wireless network, and you’ll have every thief’s dream kit in the palm of your hands.
