Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn listed for physical release on Switch, new details
We haven’t heard much about Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn in recent months, but the game may finally be coming soon. It was rated not too long ago by the USK, and a listing has now popped up on Amazon UK. Yes, this is apparently getting a physical release on Switch.
It could be a tentative date, but Amazon UK believes Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn will be launching on April 3 – at least physically. The retailer also provides the following details:
The world is on the brink of disaster. Demonic celebrities have taken over the planet. Only one man can save us: a poor Chinese orphan named Shaq Fei Hung.
In Shaq Fu, players take control of the unstoppable Shaquille O’Neal as he fights his way through the hordes of Hell and Hollywood. Defeat dozens of enemies, as Shaq learns new moves, travels to unique locations and battles the legions of the damned. At the end of each journey, Shaq must face down a powerful boss ripped straight from tabloid headlines and bent on our destruction.
Will he triumph? Of course, he will… It’s Shaq.
– Fight your way through the streets as none other than Shaq Fu himself, voiced by the real deal, Shaquille O’Neal.
– Battle outlandish celebrity bosses with special skills, power-ups and some old-fashioned martial arts.
– Master devastating combos and let Shaq rip against his enemies
– Wield Katanas, shuriken and baseball bats
– Travel to locations around the world and use each unique environment against your enemies.
– Power ups with every nickname Shaq has ever had from Big Daddy O to Big Diesel.
