Sifu is a beat’em up action game, playable from a third person perspective, with the term “sifu” meaning “master” in Cantonese. The game was inspired by Pak Mei kung fu and includes over 150 different attacks.

The plot takes place in China and features five martial artists consisting of “The Botanist”, Sean “The Fighter”, Kuroki “The Artist”, Jinfeng “The CEO”, and Yang “The Leader”. The story begins with the group of five attacking a martial arts school, slaughtering all the students. The leader of the group demands information from the school sifu, who refuses and is killed. The game follows the sifu child who died eight years after the school attack as he seeks revenge against the group of martial artists.
