Developer Sloclap has announced Sifu tops 1 million copies sold, a new milestone not long after its release last month.
While Sifu tops 1 million copies sold, Slocap also confirmed over 10 million hours have been playedin the game, and over 45 percent have completed the challenging second level of the game, with many on their way to completing the game like we did in our thorough Sifu review.
“We are thrilled by the reception of Sifu from both fans and press alike,” said Pierre Tarno, executive producer at Sloclap. “We set out to create an authentic, Kung Fu action game that paid homage to our favorite Kung Fu films. We’re thankful for our fans around the world but we are especially humbled by the incredible reception the game has had in China. Our internal metric of success was how well the game was received there and knowing that fans in China are the largest segment of our sales outside of North America and the positive reviews from Chinese critics means a lot to us.”
Alexis Garavaryan, CEO of Kepler Interactive, said, “The team at Sloclap crafted something truly exceptional that resonated with audiences across the world. Sifu is an overnight success years in the making that started with Absolver and the team’s aspiration to redefine the standard for martial arts games. We also thank our friends at PlayStation and Epic who gave us absolute world-class support and visibility.”
