They originally created the Sly Cooper franchise. I was six years old when the first game came out. I remember seeing the commercial for it.
And now, an eternity later, they're coming out with a samurai epic in the short aftermath of the Infamous series (not sure if there'll be a third). You'd think a video game studio like them would've been erased from existence like a lot of other 6th gen developers.
And going back to Ghost of Tsushima, you know how ultimately RARE it is for an American game studio to nail - and I mean NAIL - a console specific title that's Japan based without being straight offensive? And being accurate at that, while retaining an original premise? It's INCREDIBLE. If you told someone circa 2002 that Sucker Punch would still be active in the future making more single player action stuff on the shelves, they'd have thought you were crazy. That's back when GBAs were still made, daaaaaaamn.
So what do you think? Is your mind blown by the jump from raccoon thieves to power absorbing anti-heroes to samurai?
