New Shaq Fu fighting game coming to Xbox One and PS4, but there's a catch
Game will come to consoles like Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Wii U if funding hits $450,000.
If funding for the new Shaq Fu fighting game, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, hits $450,000 then the game will be released on consoles like the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Wii U. The news was announced on the game's Indiegogo campaign yesterday.
Right now, funding for Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn stands at $141,426. The campaign was recently extended two weeks, and now ends on May 5.
Previously, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn was confirmed only for PC, with a $1.6 million stretch goal for Xbox One and PS4 versions. Should funding reach $650,000, the game will be released for iOS and Android, while 3DS and PlayStation Vita versions will become a reality if funding hits $960,000.
Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is in development at a new studio called Big Deez Productions, which is staffed by developers who worked on franchises like Halo, Max Payne, Battlefield, Killzone, and Street Fighter, among others. It is a sequel to the 1994 2D fighting game and developers have promised that they won't "FU it up."
The company also announced a new funding "perk" for the campaign. If you donate $35,000, Shaquille O'Neal himself will travel to your party and DJ at the event for you and your friends. You'll also get a copy of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, signed memorabilia, a t-shirt, poster, free lifetime DLC, and a limited edition character and weapon.
With that $35,000, you could also buy a nice new car. Just saying.
