Just weeks after lifting the lid of his return, Tate Multimedia is excited to announce that the very first demo of Kao the Kangaroo will hit Steam’s Next Fest celebration taking place between February 21-28, 2022.
The brand new demo will include an exclusive look at one level – Dark Forest – offering up to 40 minutes of gameplay, depending on your playing style. It’ll be fans’ first chance to experience Kao’s return, more than two decades after he made his debut on SEGA’s legendary Dreamcast.
If the Kao announcement last month managed to escape your gaze, you can check out the announcement trailer here:
“We cannot wait to see players take on the Kao the Kangaroo demo,” says Kaja Borowko, Head of Studio. “The reaction we saw after the last trailer went out has blown us away, and so now seems like the perfect time to let people in on the action ahead of the game’s release later this summer.”
At launch, Kao – pronounced K-O – 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.
The original Kao the Kangaroo series collectively sold more than 700,000 units worldwide, with four games in total having launched across PC, PlayStation 2, PSP, Nintendo GameCube, Xbox, Game Boy Advance, and the aforementioned SEGA Dreamcast.
