'Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn' reaches funding goal of $450,000

"Shaq-Fu" may have been among the worst video games of all time, but a sequel will now be hitting the shelves thanks to a successful fundraising campaign started by Shaquille O'Neal himself.

The 2D fighting game, which was released in 1994, saw O'Neal fight "Mortal Kombat"-like battles against evil mummies and voodoo priestesses in another dimension. Despite it being a complete train wreck of a game, O'Neal started a crowd-funded campaign on Indiegogo to create a sequel called "Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn" back in early March.

And thanks to one generous donor, who committed $35,000, the campaign finally hit its funding goal of $450,000 this week.

Sure Shaq could have easily funded the project himself, but he opened the doors to the public because he wanted "to take advantage of all available options" with his "big social following."

O'Neal also set out a list of prizes for those who made larger contributions, and the person who donated $35,000 will now have Shaq travel to a party of theirs and play a DJ set.

Developed by "Big Deez Productions," "Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn" will be released on PC, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, XBox One, and Wii U.
