Starting today, Switch owners can pick up Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn. Get a look at the official launch trailer below.

Last year, Saber Interactive announced a special offer involving NBA Playgrounds. Those who purchased the game by the time its online patch dropped would be entitled to a free digital copy of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn.

This will be going live starting tomorrow. On the eShop, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn will show a 100% discount to eligible Switch owners, making it entirely free. Again, it only applies to players who bought NBA Playgrounds before the online update.

You’ll have until July 5 to claim your free copy.

Saber Interactive hasn’t had much to say about Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn. We did recently come across a retail listing for the game, but we haven’t heard much over the past few months.

Speaking with TechRaptor, Saber Interactive finally explained the situation. Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn is apparently complete, and the team is now working around licensing issues. News will be provided soon on the game’s official Indiegogo page. Oh, and the Wii U version has been dropped, which is not much of a surprise.
