Sifu Delayed to Early 2022


Developer Sloclap have released a new gameplay trailer and announced a delay in the release date for kung fu action game Sifu. 

As previously reported, players must take revenge for their fallen master, and gain a greater understanding of Pak-Mei kung fu. While you only have one day to gain vengeance, you age as you fail. However, you also learn more devastating techniques and combos to befuddle and pummel foes.

While originally slated for a 2021 release, the game will now launch early 2022 on PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. The trailer- being part of PlayStation’s State of Play conference, makes no reference to Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store). The latter still lists the game as coming soon.

You can find the new gameplay trailer below.

You can find the rundown (via the Epic Games Store) below.

Is one life enough to have Kung Fu?
In Sifu, you play a young Kung-Fu student on a path of vengeance.
Running after shadows from his past, one against all, he will have to draw deep into his unique mastery of Pak-Mei Kung-Fu to prevail.

On the path of vengeance:
The hunt for your enemies will take you through the hidden corners of the city, from the gang-ridden suburbs to the cold hallways of the corporate towers. You have got one day, and countless enemies on your way. Time will be the price to pay.

Adaptation is the way:
Careful positioning and clever use of the environment to your advantage are key to your survival. Use everything at your disposal: throwable objects, makeshift weapons, windows and ledges… The odds are stacked against you, and you will be offered no mercy.

Training never ends:
Kung Fu is a path for the body and the mind. Learn from your errors, unlock unique skills, and find the strength within yourself to master the devastating techniques of Pak-Mei Kung-Fu.
