It’s been a while since we’ve heard news about the crowdfunded Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, the sequel to the 1994 “classic” which featured the famed basketball player attempting to fight creatures from another dimension using his self-taught kung-fu.
The latest trailer knows very well about the past and not afraid to poke fun at it, simply by claiming that the new entry will be “Better then the Old One”. Currently, Saber Interactive has announced a Fall release window and has confirmed that the game will be coming for the Switch along with PS4, Xbox One and PC.
For those who picked up Saber’s other title “NBA Playground” on the Switch, which lacked Multiplayer Support, will also be getting Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn for free. “We had every intention of launching online play for NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch within days of release, but, despite our best efforts, it didn’t play out that way,” said Matthew Karch, CEO of Saber. “We sincerely apologize for the delay and want to let everyone know the fix will be coming very soon. But words are cheap, and games are not. So we’re giving everyone that bought NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch before the online play patch hits a free copy of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn on Switch when it is available this fall to express our gratitude.”
