Four New Trademarks Filed for Shaq Fu

By on June 5, 2013 at 12:08 pm

Some new developments have come to light in the story surrounding the creation of a possible Shaq Fu sequel. Mine O’Mine, the owners of, recently filed four new trademarks for the title that cover video games, computer software, video game characters, electronic action games, playing cards, and online games. This comes less than a month after similar trademarks were filed for something called Shaqfighter.

It’s unlikely that a company would submit such extensive trademarks unless they were planning to make a new game, but Mine O’Mine has yet to comment on the matter. For now, feel free to reflect on the fact that we may one day see a sequel to Shaq Fu.

    Let’s not have such a petty bias in the future, especially regarding a project as important as this one.

    • ReddChief78

      Shaq Fu isn’t made by Rare so KI3 was still announced also

  • Weird Al Yankovic

    No new Project Justice, no new Primal Rage, no new Killer Instinct (ya ya rumors)…But there’s a new Shaq Fu. SM f’ing H.

    Not a very good or memorable game and Shak’s name might not mean much to the younger crowd these days. I would have pointed out the obvious fact that the game mechanics is as dated but with games like Dive Kick getting promoted on this forum I think it could just do with some graphics polishing and re-release. I would also say Shakfu=waste of time but ShakFu(1994) > DiveKick(2013).
