Hailed as an early GOTY contender and applauded by international critics in the east and west, the Kung Fu action game Sifu from independent developer and publisher Sloclap (Absolver) achieved one million units sold in its first three weeks of general availability.
There has also been released an accolades trailer. That’s right all those beatings were for something after all.
Breaking the game down punch by devastating punch
To date, there have been more than 10 million hours played. Of the 1mm+ players, more than 45 per cent have completed the challenging second level of the game, and are now on their way to completing their vengeance.
Over 150,000 players have already mastered Kung Fu enough to beat Yang, the game’s main antagonist. Special congratulations to those who have managed to grow beyond their vengeance, and have now achieved Wude, i.e. – the game’s true ending.
As someone who hasn’t played it yet, I can’t wait to dig into Sifu. It looks deliciously fun and challenging. I’ve been told constantly of its Kung Fu inspirations and I know as a fan of the genre that I will likely fall in love with this title.
