Check out the final and epic Arenas content in today’s launch trailer:
In response to our community’s request for even more challenging content, this update was designed to cater especially to the needs of more seasoned players, and they will only be able to unlock new challenges after successfully completing previous ones.
No matter how you choose to Kung Fu though, you can relive your favorite moments exactly as you imagine them, in the dedicated Arenas Custom Mode donning the outfits and picking the modifiers of your choice.
A beat ’em-up the tale of vengeance, Sifu places players in the shoes of a young Pak Mei Kung-Fu student who, following the murder of their master, embarks on an epic quest for revenge. Fuelled by years of training that have turned them into an unstoppable force, players will hunt down the terrifying warriors who slaughtered their master years ago, as well as the countless goons guarding them. But revenge comes at a price, exacted through defeat and the power of a mystical talisman. With every failure, players will rise again, older and wiser, though with fewer years to spare than before. What is vengeance worth to you?
Following its debut on PlayStation consoles and PC in February 2022, Sifu was hailed as one of last year’s best action / beat ’em up titles, surpassing more than one million copies sold in its first three weeks and garnering critical acclaim. Sloclap‘s support of Sifu has been extensive, with numerous updates having launched throughout 2022 that added difficulty modes, a long list of exciting gameplay modifiers, new outfits, and more. To date, all updated content added to Sifu will be available in the game’s latest versions.
