Sifu is an upcoming beat 'em up action-adventure video game developed and published by French studio Sloclap.

The game is set to be released for Windows, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on 8 February 2022.

Sifu is a beat 'em up action-adventure game played from a third-person perspective.

The game, which is inspired by Pak Mei kung fu, includes over 150 unique attacks.

Basic attack moves can be chained together, though some combos may grant players additional tactical  opportunities, such as being able to knock down enemies or stun them.

The protagonist and all hostile enemy characters have a "structural gauge".

When the gauge is completely filled, the guard of these characters will  break and they will become vulnerable to finishing attacks.

Players can also block strikes, though this will gradually fill their  gauge. Alternatively, players can also evade attacks or parry when an  enemy is about to land a blow.
