This entirely new adventure follows Kao, pronounced K-O, on a journey to find his missing sister and solve the mystery of what happened to his long-lost father. Once again this marsupial will don his magical boxing gloves and travel the world confronting famous fighting masters all of which are under the influence of a dark power. Punching a path forward, Kao will journey through the vibrant and colorful world including the Eternal World. This chaos filled realm of mystery will grant Kao its secrets, but at a cost.
Today’s the day people will finally be able to get their hands on Kao the Kangaroo – assuming they take their boxing gloves off first. This is an entirely new adventure that both honours Kao’s previous outings, as well as offers fresh takes on the 3D platformer that newcomers can also appreciate. It’s a complete reboot for Kao, and it’s amazing to finally get the game out there!Kaja Borowko, Head of Studio, Tate Multimedia S.A.
