Shaquille O'Neal is at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, which makes me happy. What makes me even happier, however, is that when jokingly asked by GamerFitNation if we'd ever get to see a sequel to 1994's Shaq Fu, he said yes. And that it's "coming soon."

 

Even though I'd love for this to be true -- to be able to witness what a modern-day Shaq Fu would look like -- it's unclear if Shaq was being genuine in the interview. That said, a trademark for "SHAQFIGHTER" was filed earlier this year.

 

Crazy as it all sounds, this is not completely outside the realm of possibility.

I remember renting the original from Blockbusters... it was SOOOO bad, so unbelievably bad. Even as a kid, I knew how bad it was.

I think the original has appeared on a few sh|t lists over the years.

Yeah, when we played it once as kids we realised then that it was terrible and never replayed it. Although nowadays i can't even remember why we thought it was terrible.

Easily.  I remember it had an air of gore to it, as well.  Shaq was also absolutely useless at fighting, I think the most memorable move he had was some sort of defensive force-field that looked like a basketball.

Wow that's a blast from the past.. had the Sega Genesis version anyway. Neither my little brother or I cared for it much, think our response was something along the lines of this if I remember right.

Grab an emulator and a ROM and you can relive the head-inducing gameplay  :laugh:
