Shaq Fu has returned to dunk on fools once more, and not just in game. The Nintendo Switch version of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn will cost more than the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions.
Both options still sit below the standard game price of $60. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game retails at $29.99 while the Nintendo Switch version is $39.99.
So far, neither publisher Wired Productions nor developer Saber Interactive has made a statement about the price difference. If we remember back to L.A. Noire, its Switch version was more expensive due to the game needing a larger storage card. This could be another example of that, it could be due to licensing fees, or perhaps greed, for all we know.
If it is a restriction to the game card's physical capabilities, then the digital download option of the game should (in theory) sit at the $29.99 pricetag. There's no confirmation as to if this will be the case or not.
Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is the sequel to 1994 Genesis and Super NES 2D fighting game, Shaq Fu. In the classic Shaq Fu, basketball player Shaquille O'Neal travels to an unknown land to fight strange beasts. It was widely considered one of the worst games of its time. Superman 64 hadn't come out yet, after all. Now Shaq is back, fighting in a beat-em-up style game in urban environments.
