Sifu release date moved after two weeks, now out on February 8

In a move not often seen in the gaming world, Sloclap announced that their upcoming kung fu adventure title, Sifu, will release two weeks earlier than expected. Before scheduled for February 22, the brawler will now come forward PS4 and PS5 on February 8. If that’s not good news for fans, the development team has also shared a few details about the game’s combat system and design.

The news of this date change was teased by Slotlap last weekend. The developer took to Twitter to let fans know that a “big announcement” is coming regarding the kung fu game. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait long to find out what the announcement was as PlayStation tweeted the news just a little later. It also tweeted that fans should “stay tuned” for more details on Sifu’s battle system and progression. Those details appear as a blog post by Slotlap on the official PlayStation Blog.

Sloclap’s marketing director, Felix Garczynski, has arrived Blog PlayStation to provide insight into Sifu’s design and how the combat system was created. In the post, Garczynski shared that the inspiration for the game mainly came from martial arts and kung fu movies. This meant the team had to strike a “balance between reliability – realistic combat techniques, realistic animations – and aesthetics, with crisp action and immersive camera framing”. Along with classic kung fu, the game is also designed around the “raw melee combat” seen in newer movies like John Wick.

A similar thought process went into the design of Sifu’s combat system. To want players to both feel challenged and experience progress, the team developed the Structure system. According to Garczynski, the system will simulate “the real combat concept of influencing and disrupting an opponent’s stance, his ability to attack and defend himself.”

This structured combat system will operate using a gauge. You can “break” your opponent’s structure by filling their gauge through successful blocks and attacks. Once the gauge is “broken”, the opponent is vulnerable to a strong knockdown. Players will need to be mindful of their own gauge though, as enemies will try and “break” it. You’ll get a chance to experience this structural system when Sifu launches on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on February 8.
