Retired NBA star and media personality Shaquille O'Neal has promised a "surprise" at the Game Awards show on Thursday night, following the successful crowdfunding campaign that raised some $460,000 for the Shaq-Fu reboot.
Posting on his Twitter account, O'Neal wrote "I'm heading to The Game Awards on Thursday in Los Angeles; have a little Shaq Fu surprise for you videogame fans."
The Game Awards, which presents accolades to the developers behind some of the most acclaimed games of the year, is due to air on Thursday at 6 PM PST (GameSpot will host a livestream). Spliced within the ceremony will be a series of trailers for new projects in development, with host Geoff Keighley claiming thatten "world premieres" will air on the night.
Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn is a reboot of the original 16-Bit fighting game which in the two decades since has gathered a mild cult following. In May last year, O'Neal launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the remaster project, andmanaged to amass $458,000 in funding.
