Guys, Shaq Fu 2 is happening. Shaquille O'Neal said so in an interview in which he was in no way joking around. This is the most serious business to have ever happened.
In an interview with GamerFitNation at CES, Shaq Diesel himself broke the news everyone had been waiting for since rocking a six-button controller for their Sega Genesis. Shaq Fu 2 is coming.
When asked if there would ever be a Shaq Fu 2, Shaq wasted no time in proudly proclaiming it was already in the works. "Actually, yes," the star of 'Blue Chips' said. "The graphics is crazy. Yes, I'm telling you. Wooo. I promise you. Wait until you see it. Crazy."
What's interesting is how the interviewer admits it wasn't a serious question, but Shaq being the astute and stern business man he is, answered as if his life depended on it. There was no hesitation. There was no jovial smirk. This was Shaq declaring Shaq Fu 2 to be real as if he was being deposed by the Supreme Court.
Now, Shaq has messed around in the mobile market before, and it certainly would make much more sense to create such an unwarranted sequel on iOS and Android devices rather than tailoring it for a full console experience. Shaq Fu is not widely remembered as a fan favorite, but folks might be inclined to see what a follow-up has to offer if it's only $0.99.
You can check out the full interview below, but we'd prefer if you started preparations for what surely will be the greatest moment in the history of the universe times a million. That is, if it turns out to be true.
