It looks like some games franchises just never stay dead as now we can look to see Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn coming to the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC this Spring. We are not talking about a remaster of the old 1994 title that was utter garbage during the time of everyone having a video game out there. We are talking about a sequel to that game from Big Deez Productions and Saber Interactive. There were a lot of gamers out there that wanted to see Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn come to light and now it is. I would not be surprised if a good portion of the Indiegogo funding came from Shaq directly, but nonetheless, it is coming and it looks to make up for that bomb from so long ago. That is a hefty task to do.
This is not the first we have heard of Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn, but as it looks like it is truly going to be a thing, we may as well get behind it for now. You can see the latest trailer for the game here and it does look like it could be a vast improvement from before, but still going through same scrolling brawler. Although I will say it does actually look like it could be a fun game to play. I do have a feeling that this version of Shaq-Fu is going to have a pretty lousy story mixed in. That is something that can be forgiven if the gameplay is actually as explosive as it is made to look in the following trailer. I guess we will find out here in the coming months though.
