One thing you have to always respect is when we do get the Direct and State of Play videos, there’s always a few surprises here and there. One of those was Sifu from today’s State of Play from Sony, and what a unique and interesting-looking title it is.
The game was revealed out of nowhere at the State of Play. It features a young man who goes into long fights with vicious kung fu combat. It seems to be mostly hand-to-hand, though we do see the use of a few melee weapons in the trailer. It also seems that every time your character falls, he returns a little more aged. It’s unclear if this is a gameplay mechanic of some kind or ties into the narrative. The camera also has a tight pulled in third person angle. The game is developed by SloCap, who last developed Absolver.
Sifu will release at some point this year for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
