Kao – pronounced K-O – launched his first adventure on SEGA’s legendary Dreamcast back in the year 2000. Now, two decades on, Kao is giving the platforming genre a kick and jumping into a new adventure.
Players will join Kao as he sets off to find his missing sister, and solve the mystery of what happened to his long-lost father. Kao 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 colourful and vibrant world alive with activity and visual flair.

“With this new chapter, we’ve set out to make sure the new Kao the Kangaroo both honours his previous outings and offers fresh, contemporary gameplay for fans new and old alike. This is a complete reboot for Kao, and we can’t wait to see how people take to it at launch!”Kaja Borowko, Head of Studio.
