Kao the Kangaroo will make its return on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on the 27th of May.
Kao – pronounced K-O – launched his first adventure on SEGA’s legendary Dreamcast back in the year 2000. Now, two decades on, Tate Multimedia has decided to give the platforming genre a bit of a kick and let Kao off the leash once more, releasing his biggest adventure yet.
The story of Kao the Kangaroo
Setting out to find his missing sister and solve the mystery of what happened to his long-lost father, players will join Kao as he picks up his magical boxing gloves and travels the world confronting famous fighting masters who are under the influence of disturbing, dark power, all while exploring a colourful and vibrant world alive with activity and visual flair.
Kao the Kangaroo looks like an old school platformer with the visual flair of a modern-day videogame. I appreciate that this looks pretty fun and quirky even though Kao himself seems like the poor cousin of Crash Bandicoot and Ty the Tasmanian Tiger. However, who is to say this won’t be a lot of fun? With all this time and effort put into Kao hopefully, this will be a knockout when it lands across the platforms next month.
