With the fighting game Sifu, a new title was presented at the State of Play edition of Sony. Here you take control of a kung fu student who seeks revenge.
A relatively unknown development studio called Sloclap has just presented a new PS exclusive called Sifu. A short trailer gives us a first impression of this game. The special comic style of the game is particularly striking. According to the trailer, we are dealing with a fighting game in which you will slip into the role of an Asian martial artist.
To be more precise, Sloclap is an indie developer that was founded in Paris in 2015. So far, the still young studio has only had one relevant game, which is offered under the name Absolver. Underneath you can imagine an online title in which there is also a lot of beating going on. Apparently, Sloclap is taking a similar path with the newly announced game.
This is how the game is officially described on the official website: “Sifu is the new game of Sloclap, the independent studio behind Absolver. A third person action game featuring intense hand-to-hand combat, it puts you in control of a young Kung-fu student on his path of revenge throughout the city. Coming out on PlayStation in 2021.”
Sifu will be released later this year for PS5, PS4, and PC via the Epic Games Store. You can watch the trailer below The scenes shown were recorded on the PS5.
