With so many great PlayStation 3 exclusives already available, it might be easy to miss the upcoming Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time .

But we believe that'd be a colossal mistake. We learn a bit more about the return of the sneaky raccoon at the PlayStation Blog , where Sanzaru Games President Glen Egan also introduces Ninja Master Roichi Cooper.

In Thieves in Time , you will be able to travel back in time and meet your Cooper clan ancestors. But on top of that, you'll have the opportunity to play as those characters, too! Each episode in the game will boast a new member of the Cooper clan with his own "unique and powerful abilities that opens up a whole new range of gameplay in the huge environments." Time to experiment with new skills!

And the first ancestor they're displaying is Roichi Cooper, the master of the Ninja Spire Landing. He first appeared in Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus and now, you'll get a chance to test out the master's techniques. This includes the Leaping Dragon technique, which lets him "span great distances between spires." Oh, and Roichi is also the inventor of sushi, and he uses his famous restaurant as a hideout and HQ.

As time goes on, we'll hear more about Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time , and we can't wait for it to arrive. This is one franchise that definitely deserved a new title for the PS3 generation!
