Shaq-Fu Remake Due in 2011, EA Says

By Published April 01, 2010 at 10:12 am

One of the most mocked games in video game history, Shaq-Fu, has vowed to return to "prove its concept was strong," says a PR rep. EA announced that they are publishing a "secret project" on March 28th, and just a few days later, several leaks pushed the group to make an announcement:

"We have decided to fully disclose our newest title in the best interest of the gaming community." The PR rep continued, "...Due to the recent success of the television show Shaq Vs., we are moving to renew the Shaq-Fu title, published originally in 1994 by EA. We cannot make a commitment to any platforms for the time being. We are aiming for a holiday launch in 2011."

Next to the infamous Battletoads, Shaq-Fu is a common joke among gamers. If I were to review it today, I would make note of its corny dialogue, horrific gameplay, and degredation of Shaq's name. What do you think about this? Could it be a worthwhile venture for EA? Comment below.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
