You had me at Shaquille O’Neal takes on demons. I mean seriously, this has to be such a massive call-back to a huge variety of schlock ‘sploitations’ we couldn’t possibly have enough time to list them all here. Bottom line is Shaq is back in gamer form to take on hordes and hordes of Hollywood demons with the utilization of a deadly martial arts known as Shaq Fu…and we are coming along for the ride too.
Synopsis goes like this:
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.
This follow-up to 1994’s Shaq Fu for Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis is way overdue and it all comes neatly packaged in the same sort of platforming martial arts action.
This has made the hell out of our day but how about you guys?
Are you prepared to enter the fu? Ready for more Shaq Fu shenanigans?

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn coming June 5 for PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
