Learn the way of martial arts as you die, age and fight once again.
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.
