Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time releases February 5

North American followers of the Thievius Raccoonus will get a new chapter on February 5, 2013. Sony today announced the release date for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, and that the game will be available simultaneously in retail stores and on PlayStation Network.

The first new entry of the stealthy anthropomorph's adventures since 2005 is one of Sony's first cross-buy games, meaning every physical and digital PS3 copy comes with a complimentary download voucher for its PS Vita counterpart. Sony also revealed several character skins as pre-order bonuses for the game.

If that's just not enough mammalian larceny for Sly fans, owners of Ratchet & Clank Collection will receive early access to Thieves in Time's demo.
