Tate Multimedia have released a new Kao the Kangaroo characters trailer, introducing the platformer’s colorful cast of characters.

This new version of Kao the Kangaroo is a reboot of the cult classic 3D action-platformer from the Dreamcast era. As Kao, players will jump and punch their way through the Outback on a journey to find out about their father’s disappearance. Kao the Kangaroo hopes to stay true to the original’s legacy, all while bringing it to a new generation of gamers with modern visuals and mechanics.

Here’s the new Kao the Kangaroo characters trailer:

Here’s a rundown on the June 2020-announced game:

Kao The Kangaroo is a 3D platformer from veterans of the genre Tate Multimedia, featuring a plucky, cheeky but a cutie, Kao The Kangaroo (Hey, just like in the title!) on a quest to uncover the truth around the disappearance of his father.


During his journey, Kao will explore a wide variety of beautifully detailed environments, each harboring secrets to uncover. At every turn, Kao faces new challenges. He’ll have to use all his skills while learning some new ones…not all of them being natural to the world he lives in! As they say, it’s the journey that makes us, not the destination.

Being inspired by the heyday of 3D platformers, as well as building on Kao’s 21-year legacy, Kao The Kangaroo is packed with plenty of jumping, thumping, puzzle-solving, and collecting. A whole new amazing adventure with all the charm you’d expect from not just the genre, but Kao himself!



  • THE CAST – Kao’s beautiful and bright world is filled with a host of colorful characters just waiting for you to meet them… in some cases (try to) defeat them! From wise-mentors, inquisitive inventors to big old bullies, the cast of Kao The Kangaroo is as memorable as it is expansive!
  • THE FIGHT – While on his journey Kao will have to overcome many foes. Quick and nimble strikers, slow and lumbering brutes, and everything in between. Kao will have to use all the lessons he’s learned to defeat those who stand before him…
  • THE GLOVES – The mysterious, mesmerizing, long-buried, gloves Kao has on his paws are oozing with power yet to be fully unleashed. They’ll be a key tool in Kao’s journey, helping to ward off foes and traverse the world. Will the secrets of their power ever be fully understood? Kao looks to find out.
  • THE WORLD – Explore a diverse range of Unique and beautiful interactive worlds filled with fresh challenges, enemies, puzzles, and secrets! Jump, climb, dive and ride your way through highly detailed environments as Kao progresses on his journey!
