Developed by Big Deez Productions, Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn will be dribbling its way onto the Wii U after reaching the $450,000 funding goal on Indiegogo. Based on the legendary former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal, Shaq-Fu’s remake will distance itself heavily from the 1994 game, which is widely known as one of the worst 2D fighting titles.
Yesterday, the new and improved Shaq-Fu game met its hefty target goal and raised a total of almost $474,000. The 2D fighting title was originally planned for PC, but when the campaign didn’t quite hit the ground running, console versions were promised and helped Big Deez Productions to reach their goal.
Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn is a modern-day take on a classic beat ’em up stylised game – you can check out the teaser trailer above, which sees an oversized, hyperbolic Shaquille O’Neal taking on various goons. The game is set to release on PC, Wii U, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
