PSA: The new Shaq Fu is free today on Switch if you own the original version of NBA Playgrounds

Before they fixed it

Shaq is back, and he’s on the attack.

Yes, the how-did-this-get-made-but-actually-that’s-kind-of-awesome-that-it-did sequel to Shaq Fu is live today, following a series of crowdfunding efforts. The thing is, you may already have a free copy of it without even knowing. As previously promised, the studio behind Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is giving out freebies to folks who previously purchased NBA Playgrounds before the update.

As a reminder Playgrounds was kind of a mess on Switch, as the developer struggled with update limits for weeks until a patch could actually roll out. This is sort of an apology letter, and the promotion will run from today until July 5.
