Sly and the gang are at it again in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the fourth installment in the Sly Cooper franchise. In an effort to build hype for the game’s release next year, Sony has unveiled a handful of screens that look absolutely gorgeous.

While the original developers of the Sly Cooper franchise are hard at work on more inFamous content, Sanzaru Games has stepped in to take over the franchise. This is the same developer that worked on the Sly Collection which released last year.

A total of seven images have been released and really show off the game’s magnificent visuals. Judging by the screens, it looks like Sly will be taking a trip to Japan to face off against the likes of a disgruntled boar. Regardless of the game’s quirks, it’s great to see more games with an artistic cel-shaded style come to high definition.
