Kao the Kangaroo is just a week away as we write this, a long overdue follow-up / reboot in the 3D action platforming series. A big emphasis is on bopping foes with Kao's fists, and it's sure to tempt some Switch owners when it arrives on 27th May.

It's coming to the eShop and at retail, but now publisher Tate Multimedia has confirmed that it's teaming up with Just For Games on a 'Kaollector Edition'. It'll be limited to 5000 copies and have various goodies included, with more details to be revealed later; it's planned to ship Q4 this year, so there'll be a bit of a wait. Here's some confirmation from Twitter in addition to the press release below.
