Shaquille O’Neal Settles the Score of ’94 in SHAQ-FU: A LEGEND REBORN Trailer

Nearly twenty-five years ago, NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal lent his name and likeness to the classic 16-bit video game known as Shaq-Fu. However, the only reason that the game is a classic is because it might be among the worst of all time. But don’t take our word for it! Even the new trailer for Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn openly acknowledges just how bad the original title was. And now, Shaq-Fu is back and out for revenge…against himself?!

Playstation’s official YouTube page has released a new trailer for Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn, the squeal that O’Neal has been promising for years. We first learned it was real at the 2015 Game Awards, after O’Neal and his collaborators successfully crowdfunded the game. It took a long time to arrive, but A Legend Reborn not only looks like it will be fun; it could even redeem the name “Shaq-Fu” in the eyes of gamers.

Big Deez Productions gave A Legend Reborn a layer of polish that the original never had, and yet the gameplay may be even more over-the-top than before. Only a few seconds of footage was on display in the trailer, but what we saw looked incredibly enticing. That’s especially true for the scene where Shaq-Fu is wearing a weaponized cactus costume to unleash hell upon his enemies in the streets. Note the Icy Hot endorsement in the background!

Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn doesn’t currently have a release date, but we’re keeping a close eye out for this one!
