Some dark, evil force has somehow possessed Saber Interactive to revisit the Shaq Fu game, openly admit it sucked in their promo trailer, and then still say they’re making a sequel thing? We’re not quite sure if it’s a sequel or reimagining or what at this point. Check out that trailer above if you want some deep existential dread at the sight of original Shaq Fu footage and give the press release below a look if you actually want more info.
