With Sanzaru Games taking the helm on the next installment on the Sly Cooper franchise, some of you may be wondering how they aim to change the game. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time being the fourth installment in the series, provides the opportunity to explore Sly's ancestors and see how he inherited all those nifty burgling abilities. As you progress through the game, each episode will bring you to a new time period and provide you a unique ancestor to play as from the Cooper Clan.
This week Playstation Blog reveals that, you will gain access to Rioichi Cooper, master of the Ninja Spire Landing! Not only is Rioichi a master Ninja, he is also the inventor of sushi and his restaurant will provide a perfect hideout for the thieves. I have posted a ton of screenshots below. Expect to find Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time on store shelves sometime in 2012, only on PS3.
