Sly’s Ancestors Will Appear in Theives In Time

Playstation 3 Sony Platformer News Adventure Action

Sly Cooper is coming back in Sly 4: Thieves In Time. As the title suggests, the game will feature the ever so popular plot device known as time travel. With that in mind, it is no surprise that members of Sly’s family will appear in the game. Sony has revealed one of these characters (pictured above). He goes by the name of Rioichi Cooper.

Rioichi Cooper was introduced in the first Sly game all the way back during the Playstation 2 era. His levels will be set during the time period that he was most prominent, which happens to be Feudal Japan. He has various techniques, such as the Leaping Dragon technique, which allows him to scale large distance. He can also use the ninja spire jump. If you look at the character selection screen below, then you many notice the character amomg Sly and his clan:

Yes, after you complete his levels, then Rioichi will be available for what may be the rest of the game. More ancestors will be revealed over time. Sly 4: Thieves In Time will be released in 2012.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
