Sifuthe fighting game from the French studio Sloclap, is entitled to an acceleration of its “fairground potato” marketing campaign. It is indeed a short film live action of no less than 9 minutes which reminds us that Sifu is a fighting game which is part of the great tradition of Asian martial arts films, with the intensity of The Raid in addition. The short film is directed by Christopher C. Cowanto whom we owe the choreographies of the bastons of Kingsmanfrom the Serie The Witcher or even the Marvel movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Christopher C. Cowan outdid himself for this short since he literally did everything, from the director to the script (well, ok…), including the choreography and even the special effects!
Let’s hope that Sifu, the game, will be just as dynamic controller in hand (this is not always what emerges from the few demos of gameplay, but OK…). Sifu will be available on PC, PS4 and PS5 on February 8.
