After two decades, Kao the Kangaroo is returning from the depths for an all new adventure this Summer. Tate Multimedia made the announcement recently, along with a brand new demo that is available now on Steam Next Fest.

Many of you younglings may not remember the original adventures of Kao the Kangaroo, seeing as it was released back on the original Dreamcast in 2000. I was 21 at the time, but I digress. Kao boasts a playstyle akin to Super Lucky’s Tale and Spyro in a 3d platformer with tons of sentient animals both friend and foe. Just imagine Kung-Fu Panda but only ahead of its time. Kao, which is pronounced as the letters K-O, comes with a nifty set of boxing gloves to aid in his quest.

At launch, Kao will find himself embarking on his biggest adventure yet, 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 colorful and vibrant world alive with activity and visual flair.

Kao the Kangaroo will launch digitally and physically on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam this summer.
