Glen Egan, president and CEO of Sanzaru Games, has said in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, players will get to step into the shoes of Sly’s ancestor. One of these is the master ninja Rioichi Cooper who uses a technique called the Leaping Dragon to jump long distances. After playing through his session in the past, Rioichi will join Sly as part of his group of thieves in the present. More ancestors are included as well, and you can read over the highlights of Rioichi, as well as check out shots of his level over on the US and EU PS Blogs. Game’s out next year.
