After surpassing their funding goal, Big Deez Productions has confirmed that Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn
will be released on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The developers are not shying away from the fact that the original Shaq-Fu
was a colossal flop and are tackling this past failure head on. The new Shaq-Fu
is completely revamped in style and in substance, going from a 2-D fighter to a beat-em-up with multiple enemies on screen at once. Check out the teaser trailer below!
This is not the Shaq-Fu
you know and probably do not love. This is a completely new experience with new modes and features.
Play as Shaq as he kicks ass and takes no prisoners
Intricately designed combo system that leaves room for a variety of fighting tactics. Learn the moves and let Shaq rip against his enemies
Pimp your character with new moves and abilities. Select from different fighting styles or combine styles and create your own new discipline (Shaq FU is what you make it)
Challenges for even the best players.
Adaptive AI keeps the game exciting
Battles against hordes of enemies in the tradition of the lost art of the beat ‘em up. I mean, who could take Shaq one on one?
Fight through the slums of Asian cities, on the rooftops of skyscrapers. Battle it out inside buildings, seedy night clubs, and cause mayhem in the markets.
Modifiers that change your appearance and enhance your skills. Transform into the monstrous Big Daddy O and crush your enemies. Twirl into the Big Baryshnikov and pirouette your enemies like a tornado tearing through Kansas. Power up into the Big Diesel and steamroll your enemies into Kobe-Patties. A power-up for every nickname Shaq has ever had, and a few new ones for good measure.
Co-op Gameplay. Grab a friend and battle it out in tandem. Play as Shaq’s identical twin (no he doesn’t sell insurance) or select from a host of other playable characters with different skills and power-ups. Split screen action available, baby!
Co-op’s not your bag? Build up your character and fighting style and duke it out online or on the same machine against another player.
We also have a special video message straight from Shaq and the developers discussing the project and the reasons for resurrecting this title from gaming shame.
We don't yet have a release date for this but we'll let you know when we hear more!
