UFC Welterweight Champion George St-Pierre assisting with Square Enix.



Famed publisher Square Enix (of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest fame) has quite the professional opinion in their corner for their open world crime drama, "Sleeping Dogs".

Staying on his native soil, GSP has been collaborating with Canadian publisher United Front Games, mainly i the area of 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."

Sleeping Dogs was originally intended to be the third installment in the True Crime franchise called "True Crime: Hong Kong". After Activision canceled the games production, Square Enix picked up the publishing rights but opted to not purchase the True Crime name rights, thus resulting in the new moniker.

"When it comes to professional fighting, names don't get much bigger than GSP," said Square Enix London Studios general manager Lee Singleton. "We are thrilled with the expertise that GSP brings to Sleeping Dogs."

Though I've yet to play the game personally, many sources are citing that the hand to hand combat strongly resembles Arkham Asylum.
