Sly Cooper Trilogy landing on PS3 in UK in December

Sly Cooper makes the jump to PS3 before Christmas

HD remastering has conquered the Sly Cooper titles

The Sly Trilogy has been officially announced by Sony, to be released across PAL territories in December, making the move from PS2 to PS3.

UK and Ireland will get the Sly Trilogy on 3 December, which means fans of the raccoon thief can line their Christmas stockings well in time for £29.99.

The classic PS2 games - Sly Raccoon, Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves - will be available on a Blu-ray Disc, remastered in HD and 3D playable.

The Sony Playstation Europe blog also says that there are brand new mini-games in the pack as well that can be played using the PlayStation Move.

The original game was developed by Sucker Punch Productions. Sly Cooper games are third-person platforms that follow the exploits of a young male raccoon Sly Cooper, descendant of master thieves, who forms a gang with the turtle Bentley and hippo Murray.
