If you've been hankering for a PlayStation 2-style mascot platformer, Kao the Kangaroo looks to fill that niche pretty handily. This reboot, announced at the start of this year, brings back the charming marsupial and his signature boxing gloves in an all-news adventure. While it might not trouble the biggest names in gaming, there's definitely an audience for titles like this. The good news is that fans of 3D platformers don't have much longer to wait.

Developer Tate Multimedia has announced the game will launch on 27th May 2022 on both PS5 and PS4. News of the release date comes alongside a new trailer, which emphasises the kangaroo's powerful elemental gloves that can manipulate the environment. The game itself is looking like simple, solid fun — we're quite looking forward to jumping in.

The game launches physically and digitally next month, retailing for $34.99/£29.99 and $29.99/£24.99 respectively. Will you be making the leap to play Kao the Kangaroo? Hop into the comments section below.
