NBA Playgrounds has had its fair share of problems - including a complicated and convoluted wait for the online update on the eShop that left plenty of players and potential owners confused - but there was a silver lining to all that bother. Those that owned and played the game prior to its big update will be able to pick up Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn - which launches today - on the eShop for free.

Sure, it might be a sequel to one of the worst games ever made, but you can hardly sniff at a brand new game with a 100% discount from day one. Log onto the eShop and the discount should already be applied (if you meet the above requirement).

Did you pick up and play NBA Playgrounds in its original form? Are you looking forward to a new Shaq Fu? Share your thoughts below...
