Square Enix today announced its partnership with mixed martial arts (MMA) champion Georges St-Pierre to collaborate on the development of Sleeping Dogs.
St-Pierre, known to his legion of fans as “GSP”, has been working with Square Enix and United Front Games on multiple elements – including combat.
“Working with Square Enix has been an incredible opportunity,” said St-Pierre. “I’m really impressed to see how the hand-to-hand combat in the game is shaping up – it’s been a great experience being involved.”
In the Hong Kong setting of Sleeping Dogs, every street corner, market stall, harbor dock or city skyscraper can become an opportunity for shoot-outs, street races and martial arts combat as players take on the role of undercover cop Wei Shen.
Sleeping Dogs will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.
