If you've been gaming in the 90s and you remember gems like Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat, Earthworm Jim 1&2, Chrono Trigger........heck, I could go on forever even without mentioning the timeless classics on the N64 like Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time. But, if you remember monstrosities like Shaq Fu....oh boy, you definitely weren't lucky with your games back then!

Shaq Fu is, without any doubt, one of the most universally hated games and certainly one of the worst games ever. No one ever thought (especially at that time) that a sequel would ever come out. But...it's happening. Ever since a crowdfunding campaign was launched back in March 2014, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn managed to collect (and exceed) $473 000 in total which was enough to make the sequel "a sure thing".

As it stands right now, the game will officially come out this spring as Saber Interactive and Wired Productions confirmed. The main protagonist will, once again, be a famous NBA basketball legend Shaquille O' Neal and he will be fighting against various Hollywood-inspired goons and baddies in order to try to "settle the score of 1994". He'll be able to shift into some of his alter-egos like Big Diesel and Big Daddy O and he will also be able to use a bunch of different weapons ranging from baseball bats all the way to shurikens. Well, he better succeeds.

And here is the official statement of the CEO of Saber Interactive, Matt Karch: "We know diehard fans have been waiting eagerly to experience the hard-hitting action of this new take on Shaq Fu, and we're excited to team up with Wired Productions to get the game physically into the hands of players this spring". To be honest, the term "diehard fans" in this case made me die a little bit inside since I doubt any committed gamer could end being a fan of one of the worst creations the gaming industry ever saw but, at least, I can bow down and salute the effort to make things right this time.

We will see whether the sequel will fix the mistakes of the original game. If the things get messed up again, our dear Shaq will definitely be a part of history....and not a good one.

Here's a little trailer for the end:
