If anyone has ever seen a worst games ever list, then you may have seen the title Shaq Fu before. The game originally launched for the Super Nintendo and Sega Mega Drive in 1994 and geatured NBA Superstar, Shaquille O’Neal practicing Kung Fu in a Street Fighter esque fighting game. while the graphics were good for the time, the gameplay was very lacking and players often resorted to spamming their one useful attack.
Well now Shaq Attack is back! And he has used that 20 year hiatus to triple his body mass to unleash more fury on his enemies. Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is being crowdfunded through indiegogo, with Shaq himself spearheading the funding pleas (Shouldn’t he have enough money to fund this himself ?). The developers of the game this time around are Big Deez Productions and are promising this time “They won’t FU it up!”, showing they are probably aware of what the people thought of the first game. They are promising the only two similarities between the two games will be the name and the starring character. The game is taking inspiration from Streets of Rage, Street Fighter and Devil May Cry and mixing it all together for a beat-em-up sidescrolling fighter.
For more information on the game and to help support it, head on over to the indiegogo page. There are some pretty sweet backer perks, with one even allowing you to go to Shaq’s house for lunch and some ball! Check out the awesome poster and trailer below for your first look at the game which seems to be nailing that old school vibe. The game will be coming to PC and many other consoles if it reaches its stretch goals.
