Acclaimed martial arts adventure Sifu will debut on Steam and Xbox consoles in March 2023, developer Sloclap has confirmed.
This version of the game includes a new Arenas mode that will also be available as a free update for PC via the Epic Games Store and simultaneously for PlayStation.
Details on what this new offering will include are few and far between at the moment – a trailer for the update promises nine maps that will unlock new modifiers and alternate moves, additional cheats and fresh outfits. It sounds like they are worth playing!
The well-received Sifu has been kept up to date since its release on PC and PlayStation earlier this year. A fall update recently added a nifty replay editor, as well as more modifiers, cheats, and outfits.
And as if that wasn’t enough, Sifu is also set to hit the big screen, thanks to a script by John Wick author Derek Kolstad. This film adaptation will reportedly stick to the kung fu-infused revenge plot and bizarre aging following the game’s reincarnation twist.
“An elegant martial arts meditation on temporality and self-mastery, set in a loving but touristic vision of China,” Edwin wrote, recommending the game in Eurogamer’s Sifu review. “This is a play about the punch-addicted unevenness of time and the way that unevenness depends on the spirit you bring to bear.”
