Kao the Kangaroo

Post by arnoldfranklin »

There is a new Kao the Kangaroo game coming out but guess what I found on Youtube. There also happens to be a level called "the great escape" in Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2 and it looks like someone grabbing something like a lum. Also, it is the second level. Maybe it wasn't a reference. I thought it was but it might not be. This is about Kao the Kangaroo but I needed to share that. Also, here is the trailer of that new game.
Here is the video of "the great escape"

I didn't find out this franchise until recently, Kao looks like the kind of individual that would hang out with Crash or Rayman.

I wonder if this thread should be added to the index later.

Thanks for adding it!

Btw, I wonder if that image could be considered a reference ro R2 or just a coincidence.

Is there an actual quote from an interview that confirms that Kao the Kangaroo was inspired by Rayman?

This game looks fantastic visually or I at least like how it looks. :P It will be released on May 27th.
Here's an IGN video about it.

Also, here's an official Tate Multimeida video that says the release date.

Also, here's a good amount of gameplay uploaded by GameByte.

I haven't watched any of these videos, but after reading this thread I've decided to buy the original Kao the Kangaroo trilogy on GOG and try to get into it! :) I've already started on the first game. So far, I'm only on the third level, and it's reminding me of Rayman 2's environments, and Rayman 1's unforgiving difficulty. :hap: But then, it was my choice to play on "Hard", so… :fou:

I stopped playing video games on "hard" well over a decade ago, save for a handful of occasions. I've become way too casual a gamer for that. :lol:

Funny, I only started playing games on Hard in 2014, which was less than a decade ago. I didn't think there was that big a difference in our ages :fou:
