In May, Kao the Kangaroo will be released for Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and PC

A new Kao the Kangaroo trailer shares the release date and some gameplay footage. The premise this time is that Kao is using boxing gloves with elemental powers to defeat enemies, track down his missing sister, and uncover the truth of what happened to his long-lost father. Along the way, he will confront and defeat “fighting masters” whose minds have been corrupted by a “dark power.” Ultimately though, it’s all just an excuse to explore colorful, family-friendly worlds in a 3D platforming setting.

The latest Kao the Kangaroo game will be released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 (PS4), PlayStation 5 (PS5), Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC via Steam on May 27, 2022. It will cost $29.99 digitally and $34.99 in stores. This 3D platformer breathes new life into a franchise that debuted in 2000 and had all but died by the mid-2000s. None of the original games were well-received or had much cultural significance, so it’s unclear whether history will repeat itself now.

Highlights

  • If you’ve already played Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Crash Bandicoot 4, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and even Demon Turf: Neon Splash all the way through, and you’re somehow still desperate for more platformers, maybe Kao the Kangaroo will provide your next fix this May.
