The sequel to the early ’90s 2D fighter Shaq-Fu will be headed to the Nintendo Switch in addition to several other Saber Interactive titles, according to Nintendo Everything.

The information was recently disclosed in an interview between Nintendo Everything and Saber Interactive CEO Matthew Karch.

Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn gained public attention during its 2014 Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, during which its developers announced a release for Wii U consoles if successful.

The campaign exceeded its goals, but news regarding the title has been sparse apart from a trailer released in 2015.

Despite the lack of news, “What we’ve heard from Karch indicates that the project is still very much in the works,” says Nintendo Everything.

Whether or not the game will still see a release on Wii U remains to be seen.

Additionally, Karch also shared with the Nintendo news site a few other Saber Interactive games that will be landing on the Switch in the future: NBA Playgrounds, “a new motocross title” and a “new four-player co-op shooter” that is “perfect for the platform.”

NBA Playgrounds is set to launch on May 9th.

No other details were provided regarding Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn, but Nintendo Everything indicates that they will “have more from Karch and Saber Interactive when [their] full interview goes live in the near future.”
