If you were around in the 1990s, you may remember it as a time where NBA players were basically superheroes. It was the kind of celebrity that the sport hasn’t seen since, and the only reason films like Space Jam managed to exist.
But, of course, this led the way for some bad things as well, and gamers may remember one such atrocity as Shaq-Fu. The game was released in 1994 on both the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, and has since gone down in infamy as one of the worst games ever released. As indicated by the title, the game featured the one and only Shaquille O’Neal.
While the premise alone is enough to make anyone cringe, its controls were the true suspects here, and it’s often remembered by ’90s kids as the game that was the waste of a good rental at Blockbuster or Hollywood Video.
Well, some legends never die, and it looks like Shaq is back in a much better-looking game: Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn. PlayStation recently dropped the trailer to the game…and I have to say, I don’t hate it. If you somehow have read all this without having checked out the trailer, be sure to check it out above.
Below is the official synopsis for Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn:
“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!”
