Next week sees the release of “Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn,” a satirical martial arts video game which stars Shaquille O’Neal as a kung fu fighter that has to save the world.
It’s a follow-up to the widely panned 1994 fighting game, and a tongue in cheek 3D brawler which was successfully crowdfunded on IndieGoGo. However, it’s the game’s still not officially announced but on the way DLC pack that’s getting attention.
Titled ‘BarackFu’, the additional story allows players to take on the role of ‘Dirty Barry’ – a very thinly veiled take on former United States President Barack Obama. Trophies found by PSN Profiles reveal you can use the move ‘Barack n’ Rolla’, part of the action takes place in France and allows you to use a baguette as a weapon, and you can win the title of ‘Commando-in-Chief’.
Even more interesting is one part will see players get into a confrontation with a Kanye West-inspired character called Con-Ye and if you defeat him you win ‘The Death of Pablo’ trophy. Obama famously called West a jackass while in office, while West recently criticized Obama for not doing more for Chicago while in office.
The game is set to be available on all platforms including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
