Through a press release, Sloclap shared with us the record numbers and sales that Sifu, his action game based on Kung Fu, has achieved in less than a month since its launch.
Released at the beginning of February, Sifu did not look disfigured in its comparison (forced by the release period, if nothing else) with Horizon Forbidden West or Dying Light 2, both for what concerns the public and from the critical side. Received with excellent ratings and acclaimed as one of the first contenders for the title of GOTY, both in the West and in the East, Sloclap’s stock hit record numbers in less than a month since launchbecoming one of the best-selling games played simultaneously in the period.
Reached up one million copies sold three weeks after launch, from the press release sent to us by Sloclap we can also deduce numerous other statistics. More than 10 million hours have been played to date. Of the one million players who started the adventure, over 45 percent have completed the challenging second level and are now well on their way to carrying out their revenge. Over 150,000 players have already learned enough Kung Fu to beat Yang, the game’s main antagonist. Along with the press release, the link to the Sifu Accolade Trailer has arrived, which we leave you below.
Sifu convinces everyone and makes record numbers and sales!
