I’m proud of my gaming history, I’ve played thousands of games including just about every AAA title you could dream of, but with the smooth comes some rough titles, and non more so than Shaq Fu back in 1994.
For anyone who isn’t old enough, Shaq Fu was bad, terrible in fact, actually, calling Shaq Fu terrible is a disservice to every other game that’s been classed as terrible in the last twenty-odd years and while there’s a few neigh-sayers who might fight shaq’s corner, as you’ll see from the trailer below, it’s pretty universally accepted how bad the original game was.
So you might forgive us for being a little apprehensive about the newly announced Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn.
Can a 1994 title that was so poorly received find a place in 2018, we’re not so sure, but it’s definitely one to watch ahead of release this Spring.
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.
“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,” said Saber CEO Matt Karch.
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.”
Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn will arrive globally at physical and digital retail this spring
