Shaq Fu Set For Return Twenty Years Later In 'A Legend Reborn'

Shaq-Fu-Returns-20-Years-LaterTwenty years after the world was burdened with the woeful multiplatform 2D fighter Shaq Fu, the basketball hero is set for a return thanks to the crowdsourcing platform IndieGoGo. Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is hoping to raise a massive slam dunk of $450,000 to create "what the original game should have been".

This incredibly daring statement goes to show that the developers, Big Deez Productions, are very much aware of the game's tarnished reputation. Since its release on the Mega Drive and Super Nintendo, countless gamers have referred to the title as being the worst game of all time. Whether or not this revival can fix Shaq's digital legacy is something only time will tell.

Instead of building upon the original game's 2D fighting foundations, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn will be heading down a Streets Of Rage styled brawler, one dribbling with plenty of humour.

A $15 donation to the campaign will secure a digital download of the game, while a more generous $25,000 offering will land you the opportunity to have dinner with Shaq himself.

Now all we need is a Kazaam unlockable costume and I'll be all set!

Honestly though, if this gets close to the Wii U goal, I might grab it just for sheer hilarity.

There'll be a remake of Shaq Fu? Would it be wrong if they remade good games instead? :-?

Ha! No shit. If this thing gets made before a Resident Evil 2 remake, it would make me wonder what kind of clowns are putting money into these "kick-starter" deals to begin with...
