Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn Indiegogo surpasses $450K crowdfunding goal

The $450,000 Indiegogo campaign for Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, the sequel to mid-'90s fighting game starring basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal, Shaq Fusurpassed its funding goal today.

O'Neal and Big Deez Productions launched the campaign last month to raise funds to develop the sequel of the poorly received original that Electronic Arts launched on Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1994. At the time of writing, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn has raised more than $453,000 in pledges with four hours remaining in the campaign.

In development for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, the beat-'em-up places players in the role of O'Neal to defeat the Black Star Ninja and his assassins. Players will have the ability to customize O'Neal's fighting style through upgradeable combos and skills, as well as special move power-ups picked up within the various stages. The game's soundtrack, composed by musician and composer Steve Molitz, will feature remixes of songs from O'Neal's rap career.

Backing tiers begin at the $15 level for a copy of the game, while the higher reward tiers include the opportunity to have lunch or play basketball with O'Neal. Five percent of all profits will be donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
