Remember Shaq Fu? That 2-d ridiculously terrible fighting game that let you play as NBA Super Star Shaquille O’ Neal? Well independent developer Saber Interactive has announced that anyone who purchased the recently released NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch prior to a pending update will receive a free copy the sequel to Shaq Fu, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn. Fans will receive the copy this fall when it launches.
“We had every intention of launching online play for NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch within days of release, but, despite our best efforts, it didn’t play out that way,” said Matthew Karch, CEO of Saber. “We sincerely apologize for the delay and want to let everyone know the fix will be coming very soon. But words are cheap, and games are not. So we’re giving everyone that bought NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch before the online play patch hits a free copy of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn on Switch when it is available this fall to express our gratitude.”
I mean come one guys, is this not the best way to reward players for having patientence? Besides the fact that Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, looks friggin’ amazing, receiving another free game for waiting is a great way to calm down slightly pissed off fans. Other studios should learn from Saber *stares straight into the eyes of Ubisoft’ For Honor*
