“Implausible mod sees Avenue Fighter’s Sakura tackle the villains of Sifu”
As if Sloclap’s vengeance-fueled journey Sifu wasn’t badass sufficient, the hard-hitting action-RPG has been given an additional injection of coolness by way of a collection of tremendous funky fan mods. The skin-swaps enable PC gamers to exchange the protagonist with some well-known faces from the world of one-on-one combating video games.
Designed and uploaded by gifted modder Dodylectable, the enjoyable roster of visitor stars contains recognizable characters reminiscent of Ken and Sakura from Avenue Fighter, Kazuya Mishima from Tekken and… erm… Gordon Freeman from Half-Life. Nearly as if commissioned by yer boy Moyse, Dodylectable has additionally created mods of two of my all-time favourite characters: The King of Fighters‘ Leona Heidern and Avenue Fighter‘s Korean murderer, Juri.
Take a look at the Sakura mod in motion within the under video, uploaded by YouTuber Kuroha Zone.
Given the elegant use of movement, impression, and momentum that makes Sifu‘s fight such a (literal) smash hit, it’s wonderful how snugly Sakura matches into the journey, bopping brains and taking names as she battles her approach by means of the imply avenues and alleyways of China’s legal underground. The truth that Ms. Kasugano continues to be sporting her college uniform, (full with backpack), solely provides to the joy — as if she embarked upon this path of full destruction proper after lessons closed.

From Sifu‘s preliminary announcement, I’ve ceaselessly referenced how desperately I need to see Japanese cinematic famous person Etsuko Shihomi modded into the sport. Whereas the Sister Avenue Fighter is unfortunately but to make her Sifu debut, these mods make the prospect of such a creation much more tantalizing to me. I’ll proceed to dream. Within the meantime, college’s out… and I do know a woman who has some noses to bust.
Sifu is accessible now on PlayStation and PC (by way of Epic Video games Retailer). You could find Sakura and Dodylectable’s different creations over on the Nexus Mods web site.
