Believe it or not, the Wiki turned 10 years old last week, on 11 March 2018, with its first ever edit penned by its founder, Thai420. Since that point, we've come a long way to make the wiki what it is, and if I'm being honest, it's amazing.
Back when this wiki was created in 2008, the series was at an interesting standstill. Sly 3 had left us with an ominous message through time. The PS3 era was in full swing, but no swinging raccoon was to be found. Was the series forgotten, or had it found its end?
Nonetheless, the wiki moved along, covering swift ground and adding page after page, tidbit after tidbit, of anything and everything that could be found in the Sly Cooper games. Edits flowed by and continued our love for the sneaky raccoon and his…Read more >
I'm not gonna be speaking for everyone here, but I just wanted to acknowledge that as of March 11, 2018, the Sly Cooper Wiki is ten years old. Pretty crazy, right?
At this time 10 years ago, Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves was two and half years old. Rumors of a PSP game were still on people's minds. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time wouldn't be teased for another two and half years when The Sly Collection released, marking the first time Sly Cooper and the Gang had made the jump to the PS3. Fan fiction and those weird music videos were in their heyday. inFAMOUS had been revealed and was slated to release that year (though it didn't, not til 2009). I'm sure Sucker Punch was getting hundreds of emails a day from little kids like you and me asking "when will Sly 4…Read more >
Sly Cooper is fifteen years old today. Crazy, huh? There's no news to speak of, sadly, so I decided that I would tell my Sly Cooper story, and I encourage all to do the same in the comments below.
I remember way back in 2002 getting a PS2 for my birthday and asking for one game and one game only: Sly Fox. Not a thing. Luckily, my mom went to the local GameCrazy (the video game store that was connected to Hollywood Video; two dead companies) and asked for Sly Fox. Whoever was behind the counter at the time was smart enough to realize that I had meant Sly Cooper and that the game wasn't going to be coming out for another 3 and a half months or so. So my first preorder was placed. (It was a small town, and this was a time where digital distribution…Read more >
I'm a bit late on finally creating a news post for this, but here goes (this post originally appeared here).
It looks like it is really happening. A TV series. Many of us wanted it, and now we are getting it.
Sony Interactive Entertainment is teaming up with Technicolor Animation Productions. They certainly have a track record. How you feel about it is up to you. They worked on the Sonic Boom television series, as well as an Alvin & the Chipmunks television series. They also do games work. It looks like they have worked on the pre-rendered cinematics in games like the 2013 Tomb Raider and Hitman Absolution (if you remember the trailer with the nuns; Technicolor Animation Productions did that).
In charge of global distribution (including merchandising…Read more >
Hey Hopeful Sly Pals,
Still no real news. But that doesn't mean we can't make some out of likely nothing. The official Rainmaker Animation YouTube channel uploaded a new Sly Cooper trailer yesterday. Yeah. Wanna see it?
You done watching? Did you notice anything? If not, that's OK. Yes, that trailer is basically the same as the original trailer from January 2014. But not exactly. At the very end, instead of the saying "Breaking Into Theaters In 2016", it says "The Movie". That's it.
Unremarkable, right? Possibly. It doesn't mean anything. Rainmaker is basically saying "we're not releasing the movie in 2016." Duh. But it also says something else. It says "we still care enough about this to make the information accurate." They aren't giving us a …

According to several sources around the internet, Rainmaker has officially moved on to working on Sly Cooper since they have finished the Ratchet & Clank movie. The people who have been saying this are fans who have sent private messages to Rainmaker on sites such as Facebook. They respond with similarly worded responses, always saying something along the lines of "Sly Cooper is next on our development slate." (Here's an example from Reddit.)
Anyway, it's good news, so stay tuned for more! (I have a feeling something will be at E3 this year... EDIT: I was clearly wrong.)

bureaucrat for the Sly Cooper Wiki.
I come to you today with (possibly) solemn news. This won't be a large post.
It looks like the movie is on hold. And has been. For two years. The official release date is still early 2016, though that is now impossible unless the film is to be released without any marketing (much like the fourth game was). Late 2016 might still be possible to hit, though if I were a betting man, I would say early 2017 or later. Remember, Ratchet got delayed from 2015 to 2016.
I'm really just compiling information here, so take this as you will. These next quotes are pulled from Twitter.
@kevmunroe (obviously) is Kevin Munroe, the director/writer of the movie.
@IanJames007 (again, obviously) is Ian James Corlett, the voice of Sly Cooper.
Now, this can all mean a var…

Hey, you thiefy-thieves you,
It's official. Really official. And in fact, it has been official for over five years now. Sly Cooper's father's name is... Conner Cooper. Yep. With an "e." Crazy, right?
Where did I get this information? Don't worry, it's all legit. But I'm not gonna tell you.
ONLY JOKING. A few days ago, I bought The Sly Collection Official Strategy Guide from Amazon. It arrived this morning. Why did I buy it? Well, I want as much Sly Cooper merchandise as I can get my hands on, but I also remembered somebody saying something about Sly's father being named in it. However, I couldn't find the post that said this.
Anyway, when it comes down to it, page 280 states Sly's father's name in bold. Could it really be Conner Cooper? I couldn't…Read more >
Hey Sly Fans,
This project has been completed!
Below is a list of all walkthrough pages that are "stubs," or are not complete pages.
You can help us out by going to the stub pages and filling them out with a walkthrough for that job. For information on writing walkthroughs, you can refer to Electric Cricket's "All in a Night's Work."
Make sure to leave a comment below telling what you did so I can remove it from this list!
None! As of December 18, 2017, every walkthrough page exists.
None! As of August 3, 2018, all walkthroughs are completed!Read more >
Hello again, Sly Fans!
The Sly Cooper Wiki has upgraded! We now have access to the new VisualEditor for pages, which makes editing a much easier thing to do, especially if you like rearranging photos and whatnot.
Now that's all good, but for me personally, I like editing in Source Mode. This allows easier coding (for when I do code) and allows me to change a lot more stuff with ease, like image sizes and centering of words. If you're like me, and you would prefer to use Source Mode, or even the default Rich Text Editor (what the Wiki used to open by default), head on over HERE. You can then scroll down to "Editing experience", then use the drop down menu to choose what editing style you would like to use.
Anyway, just thought I would enlighten…Read more >
