"Shaq-Fu: The Legend Reborn" is just like "The Legend of Zelda", which will be released on Nintendo Switch. This is good news for those who are waiting for the game's release soon on the console instead of the Wii U, which has been set aside.

The video game, "Shaq-Fu: The Legend Reborn" tells the story of a basketball player's career in the 1990's set in the backdrop of hip-hop and the dope environment. According to Technobuffalo, Saber Interactive, the creator of the Indiegogo-backed brawler game will bring Shaq-Fu on the Switch this month. Back in 2014, with a total of 1339 backers and crowd funders, the game came with the Wii U.

Well, the game is the sequel to the 2D fighter Shaq-Fu as revealed by Nintendowire. No less than the CEO of Saber Interactive, Matthew Karch made the revelation that "Shaq-Fu: The Legend Reborn" is only one among the company's creations that will land on Nintendo Switch console. NBA Playgrounds, which is a new game in a four-player co-op shooter game will also be released on the Switch.

It was back in 1994 during the time of Shaquille O'Neal's career in the NBA that the "Shaq-Fu: The Legend Reborn" game series came into being. Basically, the game takes advantage of the player's fame and the game established the brand for the player. Saber saw the need to tell the story about the legend, hence the crowdfunding activities that generated $458,000 for the Wii U release.

Apart from the Switch, "Shaq-Fu: The Legend Reborn" will be made available for the PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. For more update of the game, stay tuned to Gamenguide.
