MMA Champion Georges St. Pierre Lends Combat Knowledge To “Sleeping Dogs” Video Game

When developing a gritty action game like Square Enix’s upcoming Sleeping Dogs, nailing the feel of close-quarters combat is key. Luckily, developers United Front Games were able to snag UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre as a combat consultant, making sure every punch and grapple is brutally true-to-life.

Set for release on August 14th for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC, Sleeping Dogs will place players in control of undercover cop Wei Shen, as he fights to take down the gangs of a crime-ridden Hong Kong. It has all the makings of a classic John Woo film, and judging by the GSP trailer below, looks to be just as enjoyably painful.
