About Kao The Kangaroo

In the year 2000, Kao—pronounced K-O—began his first journey on SEGA’s iconic Dreamcast. Now, two decades later, Tate Multimedia has chosen to reintroduce the platforming genre and set Kao go once again, presenting his most ambitious journey yet.

Players will follow Kao as he takes up his magical boxing gloves and traverses the globe in search of his missing sister and the mystery of what happened to his long-lost father, all while experiencing a bright and dynamic world alive with action and visual flare.

Kao will use his boxing gloves to punch a route through his opponents in his next adventure, jabbing his way past the hurdles ahead as he pummels his way to fame.
