The digital version of the game can be purchased for the budget price of just $19.99. There’s also a boxed copy of the game available for PS4 and Xbox One that retails for $29.99. Strangely, the Nintendo Switch version of the game is the most expensive, with the physical retail copy being available for $39.99.
There’s also supposed to be a rare bonus edition of the game available through Wired Productions, which will include a vinyl single, an art card, a bag, and a Shaq Fu t-shirt, sort of like what you used to get back in the 1990s when games came in those big ‘ole, awesome looking boxes.
The game doesn’t take itself seriously at all, and it’s filled with gay jokes, low-budget jokes, crowdfunding jokes, fat jokes, fart jokes, and more. Surprisingly, the game seems to contain the kind of humor that most SJWs would consider outlawed in [current year]… the kind of jokes that Deadpool used to make but can’t make anymore.
I suspect that most SJWs will allow those jokes to slide because Shaq is black, and in the eyes of racist SJWs, blacks can’t be racist, therefore the soy-guzzling foot soldiers of the Intersectional Inquisition will either have to grit their teeth and take the irreverent politically incorrect humor on the chin, or attempt to mitigate their offense onto some other member of Saber Interactive’s team who lacks the melanin levels for which they can’t find protection on the “Progressive Stack”.
As for the game itself, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is a 3D beat-’em-up game that hearkens back to the days of old. It was crowdfunded on IndieGoGo some years ago but was initially designed to correct the wrongs that was the original Shaq Fu from back during the 16-bit era.
