As the second anniversary of the critically acclaimed action game Sifu approaches, the development studio SloClap has ignited a spark of excitement within the gaming community. A recent post on the game’s social media platforms teases “quite a few surprises” in store for fans in the days and weeks to come. This unexpected announcement has led to widespread speculation and anticipation among fans and followers of the game.
Despite widespread belief that SloClap might have concluded its post-launch support for Sifu, having dedicated 18 months to enriching the game’s content and improving player experience, the studio’s latest message suggests otherwise. Celebrating its second anniversary on February 10th, Sifu seems poised to enter either a new phase of updates or perhaps venture into entirely new territory.
The nature of the surprises SloClap hints at remains a mystery. The possibilities range from further updates and expansions to the existing game, which would continue to build on its success and respond to its ongoing popularity, to more ambitious ventures such as the development of a sequel.
It's that time of the year again, and we have quite a few surprises to share with you in the coming days and weeks…
