MICROIDS REVEALS SIFU’S PHYSICAL EDITIONS WITH A NEW PUNCHY TRAILER
Studio Sloclap and publisher Microids are thrilled to unveil the content of Sifu’s Vengeance Edition alongside a new kick-ass trailer! Following their multiplayer hit Absolver released in 2017, Sloclap’s second game Sifu will be an artful and true-to-combat Kung Fu game exploring themes of revenge and redemption! Crafted by Microids, the Vengeance Edition launching on May 3rd, 2022, is now available for pre-order.
This edition will include:
- An exclusive SteelBook®
- Sifu’s standard edition for PlayStation®5 or PlayStation®4
- ‘The Art of Sifu’ artbook
- The original game score (digital)
- 3 lithographs
Featuring the gripping intensity of classic Kung Fu films with realistic and raw combat, Sifu tells the story of a young Kung Fu student who has spent their life training for a day of reckoning after the brutal murder of their entire family by a mysterious assassination squad.
Sifu’s unique gameplay sits in the crossroads of two established and popular genres, mashing the intensity and timeless thrill of beat’em up with the gripping design of 3D action games. Set against a detailed backdrop of a fictional Chinese city, you will uncover an ancient mystery via a series of difficult confrontations that will test your skills to their limit! To overcome the odds that are heavily stacked against you, you’ll need to rely on your mastery of Kung Fu and on a magical pendant that will revive you after death. The cost of magic is dear, however, and you will age significantly every time you come back to life. Time is the price you will pay for your revenge. The game’s exquisitely hand-drawn art style pays tribute to Kung Fu film classics where themes of revenge and redemption are timeless tales, all perfectly blending with Sloclap’s martial arts gameplay expertise. Sifu offers a unique approach to martial arts and its themes, making this game a true initiatory journey.
