Sloclap has announced that kung fu action game Sifu has surpassed one million units sold on its first three weeks on sale.

The publisher/developer marked the milestone with a press release touting the 10 million hours those players racked up between them. Some more stats include the fact that more than 45% of those players made it past the game’s second level. Over 150,000 players have also made it further, beating the game’s main antagonist Yang.

There is, of course, a quote from the game’s executive producer Pierre Tarno. “We set out to create an authentic, Kung Fu action game that paid homage to our favorite Kung Fu films. We’re thankful for our fans around the world but we are especially humbled by the incredible reception the game has had in China. Our internal metric of success was how well the game was received there and knowing that fans in China are the largest segment of our sales outside of North America and the positive reviews from Chinese critics means a lot to us.”

We quite enjoyed our time with Sifu ourselves when we reviewed the game last month. Josh gave the game a very respectable score of 8, and you can read his full review just over here. The team at Sloclap have told fans to stay tuned for news on more content updates coming very soon. Sifu is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
