In March 2023, Sifu will finally release its long-awaited Arenas mode. Sloclap, a French developer, revealed the news to IGN, saying that the mode will be included in a free update to the game.

“Completing the arenas successfully will progressively unlock a massive new modifiers batch, which doubles the current game’s amount and notably brings alternative moves to our main character’s Kung Fu palette,” Sloclap told IGN. “Completing the new Arenas challenges will also grant you access to new cheats and exclusive new outfits.”

Players have been anticipating the mode since it was first teased in a content roadmap in April. The mode was supposed to launch in winter 2022, but it was ultimately delayed.

Since its release in February 2022, the martial arts brawler has amassed over 1 million players worldwide on Windows, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as well as the Nintendo Switch. The Arenas mode will be available alongside the title’s release on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
