SXSW 2014 | Shaq Touts Shaq Fu Remake

NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal is a lot of things, but nobody expected “supporter of a Shaq Fu remake” to be one of them. 

When a teaser for Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, most folks online didn’t know whether or not it was a joke or serious, but now there’s an Indiegogo page set up, and Shaq himself appeared at SXSW to promote it, so yes, it’s very serious.

Go on. Sit there and tell me you saw this coming.

While there, Shaq even got in a game of the original Shaq Fu against TechZulu host Chris Denson.

Regardless of who won or lost, we were the real winners today.

The dev team (Big Deez Productions) has promised a complete retooling of the game you grew up with against the game they’re working on now. Shaq sports a more cartoonish, over-the-top style as he faces hordes of ninjas. Here’s a trailer the Big Deez team has shared with us:

For now, only a PC version of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn has been announced. Head over to the Indiegogo campaign page to find out what you get if you become a backer. Of note is that the dev team has promised not to “Fu it up,” if that helps.
