Tate Multimedia has announced the revival of it 3D platforming series Kao the Kangaroo. The new game, called simply Kao the Kangaroo, has been announced with a new gameplay trailer. It is a reboot of this once-popular franchise, whose last entry, Kao the Kangaroo: Mystery of the Volcano, was released in 2005 for PC. Check out the trailer down below.
Kao the Kangaroo will see players assuming the role of, well, Kao the Kangaroo as he embarks on a light hearted tale set against a variety of different locations. Players will have to brawl with enemies using simple combat, run and jump through obstacles, grind on rails to make it through to the end of the levels, and more.
The visuals certainly look great, with a vibrant colour palette and art style clearly inspired by the recent Crash Bandicoot and Spyro games. There’s no firm release date just yet – except for a vague Summer 2022 window. Kao the Kangaroo releases for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Nintendo Switch.
