Is there any video game more anticipated in 2018 than the return of Shaq-Fu? Nothing anyone’s got lined up can compare to the master of Shaqido (an extremely lethal martial art form) and his return to the fighting game scene. And now there’s a new trailer, so powerful it’ll make you weep.
Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is an action-packed beat ‘em up starring the one and only Big Diesel himself: Shaquille O’Neal. Battle the hordes of Hollywood and hell on a one-man journey to avenge your fallen home and martial arts master. Beat down foes with devastating combos, face off against outlandish celebrity bosses, and unleash your fury with a variety of hard-hitting weapons and power-ups.
The pervasive influence of Shaq cannot be stopped. The game is coming out for every current platform — Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, XBox One and PC. It’ll be available in BOTH digital and physical forms on Day One, due to high demand. The digital edition (PS4, XBox, Switch, PC) will cost $20 and the physical edition will be $30 (PS4) or $40 (XBox, Switch) depending on your console of choice. Don’t ask about the price fluctuations. Shaq’s too supreme to have to explain himself to anyone.
Not only is it coming to all digital storefronts, not ONLY is it coming to retail store shelves, but some of you actually don’t HAVE A CHOICE and are getting it whether you asked for it or not. We aren’t joking. If you purchased NBA Playgrounds on the Nintendo Switch before June 10, 2017, Saber is sending you the Shaq-Fu game free of charge. No ifs, ands or buts. You take your Shaq-Fu!
All other video game makers will be shamed with Saber Interactive finally unleashes Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn to an undeserving world June 5. Now for that new trailer we mentioned earlier!
