LOS ANGELES (AP) — Shaq wants to be back in a video game and he’s seeking funding to help make it a reality.

Shaquille O’Neal says he’s seeking redemption for “Shaq Fu.” The infamous fighting game starring O’Neal is considered to be among the worst games ever made. The four-time NBA champion is launching a crowd-funding campaign to create a “Shaq Fu” follow-up called “Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn.”

The original game released in 1994 was derided by Shaq fans for its cheesy story, wonky controls and blatant attempt to cash in on O’Neal’s superstar status.

O’Neal is asking fans to contribute money on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo to back the new beat-‘em-up game to be developed by Big Deez Productions.

The multimillionaire basketball champ said he’s looking for fans to help resurrect “Shaq Fu” because it’s a “new way of doing business.”
