Here's a brand new prequel video for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, featuring Sly and the crew, animated in 2D.

Have you been wondering what the gang's been up to since the last great caper? Wonder no more as you watch this little animated short. We see Sly sneaking around, as always, and running into a captured Carmelita Fox while on the job. Sly's after a rare timepiece, but instead ends up spending some time with Carmelita, after saving her and brawling it out with the monstrous Muggshot.

The video's below, so watch it in good health and prepare for the thievery once the game comes out on February 5th, 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Vita.
