After a decent trilogy on the PS2, Sly has been lost in time on the PS3 aside from cameos in PS Move Heroes, PS All Stars and the recent HD trilogy. I’ve always been confused as to who exactly the Sly series is aimed at with its simple gameplay involving cel-shaded anthropomorphic characters performing illegal robberies with 80s pop culture references. It sends a bit of a mixed message. I’m not even going to start on the overly sexualised Carmelita Fox or Rhino cleavage posters. Following a lengthy opening and obscenely long load times the younger target audience may have lost interest (or grown too old to care) when Thieves in Time finally gives you control. But is Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time worth the wait?
Sony and Sanzaru Games have released a short animated prequel to their upcoming game, Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time. It features Sly and the gang attempting to steal a watch from Muggshot, a giant bulldog gangster and rival of Sly. This style of game advertising really gets you interested in the game, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Sony decided to do this again with Sly Cooper. This would also make for a really interesting TV show. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is available for purchase February 5, 2013.
Sanzaru Games has shared a few new details regarding the fourth installment to the Sly Cooper franchise. Thieves in Time will feature new playable characters whim we’ve only heard about throughout the series. One of those characters is Rioichi Cooper, a ninja from Feudal Japan who utilizes a technique Sly Cooper was able to learn in the first game.
In Thieves in Time Sly must travel through time to save his ancestors from an enemy interfering with the fabric of time. After being rescued by Sly, Rioichi becomes playable as one of the gang. SG has confirmed that other members of Sly’s lineage will join the group at some point in the game as well.

For those platforming fans who love the exploits of everyone’s favorite raccoon mascot, you’ll be happy to know that the master thief is finally having a proper release on the PS3 (he has had a cameo or two, and has also had the originals remastered). I bring you Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. I am sure that 6 year wait was a pretty long time, for everyone! But I would be lying if I said that the game didn’t look good.
