The brand new demo will include an exclusive look at one level - Dark Forest - offering up to 40 minutes of gameplay, depending on your playing style. It’ll be fans’ first chance to experience Kao’s return, more than two decades after he made his debut on SEGA’s legendary Dreamcast.

“We cannot wait to see players take on the Kao the Kangaroo demo,” says Kaja Borowko, Head of Studio. “The reaction we saw after the last trailer went out has blown us away, and so now seems like the perfect time to let people in on the action ahead of the game’s release later this summer.”

If the Kao announcement last month managed to escape your gaze, you can check out the announcement trailer below.

At launch, Kao - pronounced K-O - will find himself embarking on his biggest adventure yet, setting out to find his missing sister and solve the mystery of what happened to his long-lost father. Players will join Kao as he 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.

The original Kao the Kangaroo series collectively sold more than 700,000 units worldwide, with four games in total having launched across PC, PlayStation 2, PSP, Nintendo GameCube, Xbox, Game Boy Advance, and the aforementioned SEGA Dreamcast.

In his latest adventure, Kao will use his boxing gloves to punch a path through his adversaries, jabbing his way through the obstacles ahead as he pummels his way to glory.

Kao the Kangaroo will feature:

  • Beautiful, diverse worlds, packed with secrets
  • Engaging and fun gameplay for all ages - family-friendly, but for core gamers too
  • Magic gloves stacked with powers
  • Kao - a cheeky, brave, and feisty kangaroo who embarks on a life-changing journey
  • An engaging story filled with a cast of captivating characters
  • Challenging combat including unique boss battles
  • A whole host of items to collect

Kao the Kangaroo will launch digitally and physically on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam later in 2022. Look out for the free demo between February 21-28 on Steam Next Fest.
