If you have fond memories of the Shaq Fu games of the 16-bit era, then you are in luck. Shaq is back with Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn which is headed to Nintendo Switch at retail in Spring this year.
Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is an intense, action-packed beat ‘em up which sees players take on the role of the unstoppable Shaquille O’Neal as he fights his way through the hordes of hell (and Hollywood). Master devastating combos, battle outlandish celebrity bosses and take on all comers with an array of weapons, including katanas, shuriken and baseball bats. Channel Shaq’s alter egos, Big Daddy O and Big Diesel, in epic battles in the successor to the worst game ever on a mission to restore Shaq’s legacy.
Saber CEO Matt Karch excitedly said on the impending release:
"We know diehard fans have been waiting eagerly to experience the hard-hitting action of this new take on Shaq Fu, and we’re excited to team up with Wired Productions to get the game physically into the hands of players this spring."
Not to be left out Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions, commented:
"Shaq Fu has an incredible legacy in the history of video games, and we’re delighted to be part of the team shooting to earn Shaq his place in the future of video games."
Of course, anyone who purchased NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch prior to June 10, 2017, will receive a free copy of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn upon release by way of an apology for its botched launch.
