The hardcore martial arts roguelite Sifu has been one of the biggest hits of indie games of 2022, and in early 2023, more people will get a chance to play the game. Today, developer Sloclap announced that the game is coming to Xbox and Steam (previously an Epic exclusive) in March 2023. These ports of the game will arrive alongside the new Arenas mode, which will offer new challenges and unlockable modifiers for players. You can check out a trailer for Arenas mode below.
Here are more details about Arenas mode, which will be a free add-on for all players.
“Successfully completing arenas will gradually unlock a massive new modifier batch, which doubles the amount of the current game and significantly brings alternate moves to our main character’s kung fu board. Completing arena challenges will also unlock new cheats and new, exclusive outfits.”
