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...
Fair play to the developer for keeping their word. I look forward to reading how the game has turned out.
Free game. Sweet!
That's a really nice gesture! Nice to see something like this happening when most things are looked upon so negatively nowadays!
Not sure if I'll ever get around to actually playing it considering how long my backlog is but hey, a free game is a free game.
Still not showing in the UK eShop.
Kick ass about time. Free is free so hopfully there is no way its as bad as the first game.
@tourjeff 14h UK, 15h EU etc.
Classic Wii U eShop times.
Wondering why 0:00 o'clock is still not a thing for Nintendo :-/
@MaxlRoseGNR Tks for the clarification, I didn't know that
Love Shaq, love Saber....
I've watched some of the gameplay before release and I must say, it is very politically incorrect and hilarious. It looks like they did a great job and I'm looking forward to playing it.
Im in est timezone and i dont see shaq fu 2 on eshop anywhere? Has anyone dowbloaded it yet??
This has been known for over a month already.
@MaxlRoseGNR The Switch seems to have many varied release times. 2PM is standard store update. Though we have had games release midnight, 2AM, 10AM and even 10PM. Don't get it either.
So a random time. Nice of them.
@Yasume Yeah but it comes out today
Awesome news I will be downloading later today .
Can confirm it is available on the UK eshop now
The only game on Switch I really regret buying.
But is Shaq Fu any good?
The original Shaq Fu is not one of the worst games of all time. The concept itself seems to have given it the bad rep more than the gameplay. It wasn't a good game, but there are hundreds of much worse ones.
EDIT: Downloading for free now. Lets see if its any good.
Only played a little, but I`m pretty much satisfied. It looks like its gonna be hilarious game.Shak Burnt Rice lol
So it's a sequel to an infamously bad game by a studio who's previous NBA efforts were mehhhh at best.
Thank god it's free.
I've been playing Shaq Fu for an hour or so and I'm really enjoying it. Combat is fun, music is excellent and some decent comedy. Very good game.
Nice to get the game for free but I am finding it pretty generic. Probably won’t stay on my Switch long.
Does anyone know if the e-shop version will have the "Bonus Fu You" content that the physical copy has?
my left joycon is acting weird in this game and only in this game. weird. anyone else has the same problem?
