Shaq Wants Our Money to Make a Shaq-Fu Sequel

Shaq Fu

If you grew up in the late 80s/early 90s, chances are you played Shaq-Fu, the horrible Sega Genesis and SNES game featuring Shaq doing kung-fu. Well, someone thought it was a good idea to make a sequel, and Shaq is hoping people will chip in $450,000 on IndieGoGo to get it made. If that’s not hilarious enough, check out some of the rewards. $500 will get Shaq to follow you on Instagram, while a grand will get him to follow you on Twitter. For $150 you can record a line that will be in the game (admittedly not a bad deal), and for $400 you can attend a launch party in New York.

The funniest bit is that they already have DLC planned, meaning they think they’re going to raise almost a half million dollars to get a sequel to one of the worst games ever made.

I don’t know about this one, but I’d probably pitch in to get another Barkley Shut Up and Jam! made. PS, have you heard about the fanmade RPG based on that game?

  • Come on Shaq you have that change sitting in a jar by your oversized bed.

    • Haha that’s what I was thinking.

  • Those rewards really are such a joke, but what little of the game they showed (granted it wasn’t really gameplay) looked good. I wish they had focused on the “plot” of the game rather than it just being “Shaq beating up a bunch of random ninjas.” They could/should totally take this into Afro Samurai territory (the series, not the game… that game sucked too).

    Oh no! As a former Electronic Boutique employee i can tell you we could not give away the original and am being serious here too. Electronic Arts had are store giving away free copies back then and i had people throwing them back at us!
