Shaquille O'Neal launches Indiegogo campaign for Shaq Fu video game sequel
Shaquille O'Neal is raising $450,000 via Indiegogo to create a second title for his 1994 Shaq Fu video game. The game sequel will be called "Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn," according to Polygon.
O'Neal explained: "I'll admit it, Shaq Fu was a horrible game. I'm a huge fan of video games and want to have my name associated with a Shaq Fu game that I'm proud of and would like to play. This is my second chance and it's even better this time since I'm able to partner with the fans to make this happen."
According to PhilStar, the original Shaq Fu was lambasted for being one of the "worst games ever made." The basketball superstar said the second title will have significantly better storyline, effects, and gaming factors, the report said.
Those who back the Shaq Fu campaign will receive various perks including a free copy of the game, free admission to the game's launching, voicemail message from Shaq himself, an autographed sneaker, or a lunch or game at one of Shaq's houses. The perks will depend on the amount donated to the campaign, the report detailed.
The 46-day crowdfunding campaign for Shaq Fu will end on April 21 at 2:59 am ET, Polygon reported.
