Sloclap, the studio behind the beautiful but flawed Absolver, is taking another crack at making the perfect kung fu game. We got to see a minute-long preview of its latest project, Sifu, during Sony's recent State of Play presentation. In a scene inspired by Old Boy, we see the game's protagonist, who's out to get revenge for the murder of their family, take on an entire corridor of thugs. 

A magical pendant allows them to come back to life every time they fail, but that power comes with a cost. Each time they die, they grow older. On Sifu's website, Sloclap says you'll need to improvise and use all the weapons in your environment to stand a chance against your enemies. 

Sifu will be available on PS4, PS5 and PC via the Epic Games Store later this year.
