Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time will allow players to travel back in time and, not only meet the ancestors of the Cooper Clan, but play as them, developer Sanzaru revealed today.
“As you proceed through the game each episode you encounter features a new time period with a new playable ancestor,” said Sanzaru president Glen Egan on the PlayStation Blog. “Each new member of the Cooper clan has their own unique and powerful abilities that opens up a whole new range of game play in the huge environments.”
Sanzaru also shared first screenshots of Rioichi Cooper today, one of Sly’s ancestors and master of the Ninja Spire Landing. He was first introduced in the original Sly. He’s an “uber-Ninja,” according to Sanzaru, and makes use of his Leaping Dragon technique to jump great distances.

Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time is due for PlayStation 3 next year.
