Publisher Tate Multimedia has announced that Kao (pronounced K-O, by the way) the Kangaroo will be launching on Switch on May 27th, 2022.

First available on the SEGA Dreamcast in 2000, the series went dormant in 2005 after the launch of Kao the Kangaroo: Mystery of the Volcano on Windows. The new game looks to reboot the franchise with fresh visuals in Kao's biggest adventure yet.

Kaja Borowko, head of Tate Multimedia, had this to say:

“We’ve been blown away by the response we’ve had from gamers since we announced Kao the Kangaroo was making a return earlier this year. 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!”

Kao the Kangaroo will release for a digital price of €29.99/$29.99/£24.99 and a recommended physical price of €34.99/$34.99/£29.99.
