Living up to its namesake with perfect precision, a demo for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time has sneaked onto the North American PlayStation Store. It’s actually been there for much of the week, but in true ninja fashion, we’ve only just spotted it. You’ll need to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber to download the sampler, though we’re informed that it will be available to everyone on 29th January.

The teaser focuses on the title’s opening Paris level, which is more of a tutorial than anything else. Still, it should give you a feel for the budget platformer, which is due out on 5th February in North America on PlayStation 3 and Vita. European crooks will need to wait until 27th March to nab the exclusive.
