Thieving fox Sly Cooper and his friends are back for more adventure in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Times, available now for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. It’s the fourth game in the Sly Cooper series, which debuted 10 years ago with Sly Cooper and The Thievius Raccoonus for PlayStation 2. It stars Sly, a sneaky fox from a long line of thieves, who enjoys the challenge of only stealing from criminals. This time, Sly discovers that someone is erasing the Cooper family history, as documented in the pages of the Thievius Raccoonus book. With the help of his friends Bentley and Murray, Sly must travel back in time to put a stop to it and fix the damage.
The game begins with a prologue to catch newcomers up on the history of Sly and his friends. Sly must steal a museum item from ancient Japan so that he can use Bentley’s time machine to travel back to Feudal Japan. From there, he also visits other places in time, including Medieval England and the Wild West. Players get to control several fun characters along the way, solve puzzles, find hidden objects and defeat bosses. For those who own both a PS3 and a Vita, you can save your place in the game on one device and resume it on the other. A download code for PS Vita is available with the purchase of the game for PS3.
