In 1994, the world was unprepared for Shaq Fu, a freakish kung fu adventure starring basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal that is both one of gaming's worst ideas and greatest treasures. His involvement also certainly helped reach the funding goal in a timely manner, as he provided high-level donors with a host of goodies, including signed jerseys, trips to see tapings of National Basketball Association on TNT, and even the chance to have Shaq come and DJ a party for you-for the low ticket price of $35,000.
We still haven't seen much about this game and the gameplay has been kept surprisingly secretive despite the fact that it's gearing up for release this spring.
The sequel you didn't know you wanted, but are getting anyway, is nearly here.
No Shaq! That's not how we treat people!
Just in case you've been living under a rock, Shaq Fu was a 2D sprite based fighting game released back in 1994 for the SNES and Sega Genesis consoles.
It will be interesting to see how this game turns out considering how admittedly bad the original game was.
Also, it sounds like developer Saber Interactive is in on the joke. More details on the free game distribution will be announced at a later date.
You'll get to journey with Shaq to exciting locations, and fight in epic battles in this successor to the worst game ever on a mission to restore Shaq's legacy.
Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn will arrive for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this spring, after being picked up by Saber Interactive.
Fight your way through the streets as none other than Shaq Fu himself, voiced by the real deal, Shaquille O'Neal. Have you been cheated out of entertainment by Shaquille O'Neal one too many times now?
