As we’ve talked about before, we’re getting a brand new Shaq Fu game in Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn sometime this year, as the game has changed from a fighter to some kind of platforming beat ’em up. A few days ago, even though the game doesn’t have an official launch date and we’ve only seen bits of footage from it, er just got a launch trailer for it. We’ve loaded the video along with the game’s new description below, both of which totally admit the original game was a piece of garbage. Whether or not people are into buying a new version of the game with a different premise and story and mechanics and structure and… well, everything… that’s yet to be seen. But at least they’re giving it a decent go!
Shaq Fu is back and better than ever! Settle the score of ’94 in a fast-paced, dynamic beat-’em-up game, combining modern and classic approaches to the genre. The player takes control of Shaquille O’Neal, voiced by none other than Shaq Fu himself, and takes on the hordes of Hell and Hollywood. Fight dozens of different enemies, learn new moves and travel to unique locations around the world. As you proceed through new levels, face powerful bosses and defeat them!
