Of all the cult classics to get a modern-day reboot, I think this is the one about which I'm most surprised.
During last night's Game Awards 2015, developer Big Deez Productions gave us all our first peek at the upcoming Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn , and confirmed it will be coming our way next year.
Featuring the unparalleled martial arts skills of NBA great Shaquille O'Neal – whose abilities must've gotten better with age – the new Shaq-Fu will be quite the experience. Said Big Deez CEO Matt Karch:
"It was a thrill to join in a celebration of gaming’s biggest triumphs with the long-awaited return of one of its most towering figures. We can’t wait for fans to unleash the fury of the Big Diesel himself when this wildly stylized take on Shaq-Fu finally arrives."
Thing is, the original 16-bit fighter kinda…sucked. It was basically a joke. But the designers swear this new effort won't suck at all, as it'll boast "intense, combo-fueled, side-scrolling, beat-'em-up" fun for everyone."
