For those of you who remember the 1994, Shaq Fu was a 2D beat-’em-up released on the Sega Genesis and the Nintendo Entertainment System. The game received incredibly poor reviews, but maintained a cult following due to its ridiculous premise (It’s Shaquille O’Neal saving a kid from a mummy. What more do you want?)
Now, with the help of Big Deez Productions, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn has appeared on Indiegogo with a new trailer, a $250,000 goal, and a promise that, “This time, we won’t fool it up.” The new game looks like it’s taking a cel-shaded 3D art style much like Street Fighter IV, and that it’s gameplay will mirror spectacle fighters.

So, d’you think that this IP has any hope, or should this just remain vaporware? Leave a comment below.
