The reveal for Sifu made me want to rewatch Oldboy (the good one, not the remake!). Sloclap just gave us the first look at what looks like their new beat-em-up, Sifu.
The trailer at today’s State of Play showed off some intense fighting sequences in an array of beautiful settings. Hallway? Fighting in it. Nightclub? Fighting in it. Kitchen? Fighting in it. And don’t forget to do some butt-kicking in a quiet little garden.
Although not a whole lot was revealed in the trailer, we can see that it has a very distinctive animation style (man, their hair looks intense!) and it looks like the spaces you’re fighting in are fairly closed. Hopefully the camera can keep up with the action.
Even though it’s hard to know what to expect right now, it definitely looks like fun. And although multiplayer might be really cool, you get the feeling this game will be plot-based and single-player (perhaps a revenge-based plot like so many martial arts stories before it?).
