The indie game studio known as Sloclap (which is actually composed of former Ubisoft Paris employees) knows a thing or two about hand-to-hand combat.
That sentiment is clearly evident through the studio’s 2017 effort, Absolver. That online multiplayer experience emphasized active combat scenarios where players relied on movesets that incorporate calculated strikes, parries, and feints. Sloclap’s next project stays within the martial-arts realm and evokes memories of legendary kung-fu flicks, such as The Raid, Oldboy, and Rumble in the Bronx. Welcome to Sifu.
We’re super excited to hop into Sifu and tap into our inner Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, and Jet Li while we beat down the opposition. And based on the game’s clever aging mechanic, we’re fully prepared for one of the more challenging gaming playthroughs of the year.
Let’s delve into everything you need to know about Sifu before it drops on February 8.
