During today’s Nintendo Direct, Sifu developer and publisher Sloclap revealed that the game of the year contender is making a long-awaited trip to the Nintendo Switch on November 8, 2022.
Starting today, fans of the Kung-Fu-packed brawler can pre-order digitally from the Nintendo eShop or physically from select retailers with a bit of Vengeance or Redemption Edition. The Redemption Edition, available to pre-order physically now, features a SteelBook copy of the game for the Nintendo Switch, as well as a figurine, pendant of tenacity, lithograph set, and a 160-page ‘Behind the Art of Sifu’ developer’s diary.
The reveal trailer for Sifu’s arrival onto the Switch platform can be found below.
Sifu places players in the shoes of a Pak Mei Kung-Fu student who has spent their life training for a day of reckoning after the brutal murder of their entire family by a mysterious assassination squad. With just one day and countless enemies in their way, players must beat impossible odds and defeat members of the powerful organization to claim revenge.
However, time is the price paid on such a quest for vengeance. With a magical talisman to revive players after death, defeat doesn’t spell the end. Though the student always gets back, the cost of magic is dear, and they will age significantly every time they come back to life.
