Shaq Fu 2 is Coming to You

227803-Shaq Fu Header

Just over twenty years after his first martial arts adventure astounded and confused us on the Sega Genesis and SNES, Shaquille O’Neal himself has just dropped the surprise news that a sequel is in the works during an interview with GamerFitNation at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Needless to say details are being kept heavily under wraps on a project as significant as this, but O’Neal has at least assured us both that Shaq Fu 2 is “coming soon” and that “The graphics look crazy.” A next-gen version of the game is apparently a possibility.

Released in 1994 and then ported to various handhelds in 1995, the original Shaq Fu recounted Shaq’s journey across an alternate dimension as he attempted to rescue a young boy named Nezu from the evil mummy Sett-Ra, doing battle with his various evil minions along the way. It was released to widespread critical panning, with many publications even going so far as to name it one of the worst games of all time, as well as spawning the twin websites Shaqfu.com and Saveshaqfu.com, the former dedicated to finding and destroying all existing copies of the game, the later to finding and preserving them for future generations.

    So, we live in a world where Bayonetta to get a second installment has to published by another company I’m fine with nintendo I have wii u but, it shows just how bad it underperformed. No, Megaman game for years. No, F zero for awhile. no, translate for mother series aside from earthbound. Thousand of good third party that never got the second installment deserve. COD and Battlefield selling million despite being broken as fuck. and this going to exist. HUMANITY HAS FAILED.

    Why?

  5. If he’s joking (which is very likely), the reaction from him saying it’s happening will most likely tempt some developers to make it anyway.

    If the titular “Shaq” of Shaq Fu 2 doesn’t look like Sir Charles Barkley, like he did in the original I’m not buying this game.

    I think I’ll stick with Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden 2.

  7. Why? Why is this being made? Is the entire gaming market (at least for independent) just living on nostalgia and hipster like taste now a days?

  10. Howdy, Cool write-up. There is a difficulty as well as your web site in world wide web internet explorer, may perhaps examine that? Internet explorer nonetheless may be the market director and a large part of other people will certainly miss out on your own good composing for this reason trouble.
