Shaq Fu free for NBA Playgrounds Switch Owners

On the official NBA Playgrounds Facebook page a letter has just been posted concerning the issues with the launch of the game on the Nintendo Switch. In it Saber Interactive, has announced that anyone who has or buys the game before the next patch hits the system will receive a copy of Shaq Fu: The Legend Reborn for free, when it launches in fall. With this move, the company hopes to apologize for the lackluster performance of the game at launch. While you’re at it, check out the trailer for Shaq Fu: The Legend Reborn right here.

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn

LETTER FROM MATTHEW KARCH, CEO OF SABERWe love our players. The passion we see from streamers. The interaction and dialog we have on Facebook. The back and forth Tweets… We love it. We’re a small team and we’ve worked hard to deliver the best bang for buck we possibly could with NBA Playgrounds. We took arcade 2v2 basketball back from the dead and we crammed as much fun into a $20 game as humanly possible. Right away, you let us know what you wanted – what our launch was missing. So we improved. We added friends, online tournaments, reworked shot mechanics, new players, and endless performance and balance changes. We’re committed to making the game better and better. And we’re already working on the next round of feedback. But for our Switch players, still awaiting online play – and believe us, it’s coming soon – we can do more. Our Nintendo fans were left without online play and though the fix is done and going through the final motions, we can still do something nice. Something big. Something free.It’s good to be independent because no one sense checks our crazy when we look to reward a portion of our supportive, patient playerbase with something truly insane, like a free game.It’s with tremendous thanks and appreciation to our Nintendo fans who are still waiting online play that we offer you an entirely new game absolutely free. That’s right, we’re giving away a copy of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn for Switch to every Nintendo NBA Playgrounds player who has been patiently awaiting the first patch. Please note that restrictions do apply. We are still working with our partners to determine exactly how NBA Playgrounds players will receive their free copy of Shaq Fu when it releases this Fall, but if you bought or buy in to NBA Playgrounds before the patch hits, you’re getting a free copy of Shaq Fu. Why? Like we said at the beginning, we love our players and we’re always going to work to do right by them.

We believe that this is a great move by the developer and are hopeful the next patch will also improve the performance of the game on the platform. Looking at this tweet, the exact release of the patch is still unclear but it will address most issues we’ve had with this game. The patch should add online play, increase the output resolution of the game and halve its file size. We also hope that the time spent on the loading screens will also be reduced, as that is a very important factor when it comes to quickly picking up the game for a short burst of time.

We will certainly be reevaluating the value of the game once the update hits, but with the promise of a free game on the horizon, we can definitely say that the game is worth its price at the moment.

All in all, what do you think of the situation? Did you get yourself a copy of NBA Playgrounds yet or has the offer of a free game intrigued you enough for a purchase? Let us know in the comments below!
