Today, video game developer and publisher, Atari, announced the future release of a second Kao the Kangaroo game. It will be released for Xbox, PS2, GC, PC, and a PSP version is also in development. Developed by Tate Interactive, the game can be defined as an action 3D platformer starring a yellow kangaroo named Kao. The game is currently scheduled for release in March of 2006 and will have a suggested retail price of $19.95.
“For consumers looking for accessible, fun, pick-up-and-play games, Kao
the Kangaroo fulfills that need,” said Emily Anadu, brand manager,
Atari, Inc. “With colorful graphics, a lovable main character, witty
humor and addictive gameplay, Kao the Kangaroo is sure to leap into the
minds of gamers.”
Atari released this statement about this game:
Kao the Kangaroo Round 2 places gamers in the role of Kao, a brave
kangaroo straight out of Australia. Players are challenged to save the
world of animals from an evil hunter and his wicked henchmen. With over
30 challenging enemies to overcome, Kao players are equipped with an
array of fighting techniques from boomerang throwing to devastating tail
attacks. Kao the Kangaroo Round 2 features an action-packed single
player mode, and offers various gameplay experiences, including platform
action, fighting and racing. The multi-player mode in Kao Challengers
is enhanced with wireless capabilities for the PSP system. Quick to pick
up and play, but with a depth of gameplay that keeps players absorbed,
Kao the Kangaroo Round 2 presents a rich and colorful gaming universe
with over 21 vividly rendered levels set across five diverse worlds
ranging from Kao’s natural habitat of Australia to the rather less
sun-baked Arctic. Kao Challengers includes a bonus world with 4
additional levels set in a mysterious swampland ruled by an evil witch
and her magical minions.
