Kao the Kangaroo Round 2

Kao the Kangaroo Round 2 is coming to Steam on June 1, developer Tate Multimedia announced.

The sequel was first released for PC in November 2003, followed by PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube in December 2004. An enhanced remake called Kao Challengers was released for PSP in October 2005.

Here is an overview of the game, via the back of the PlayStation 2 version box:


Grab your boxing gloves and get ready to rumble!

Your job is to join Kao the Kangaroo on his search for the terrifying hunter, Barnaba, and his miserable servants who are causing nothing but trouble. And to top it off, they’re keeping Kao’s friends held hostage!

Start your journey in the Forest of the Beavers and make your way past Thunder Mountain to the Ocean Lands and try to reach the forlorn Treasure Island. You’ll have to succeed in numerous adventures—jump on your snowboard and race through the icey Canyon of No Return, go for first place in a breath-taking speed bout race, and accompany your feathered friend, “Carlos the Crazy Pelican,” on his flight across the ocean, until you are finally able to catch a glimpse of Barnaba’s boat floating on the horizon in the distance.

Key Features

  • Join in on the adventure through more than 20 thrilling levels across five fantastic worlds.
  • Learn to master seven battle techniques, from boomeranging to the incredible hammer-hit, in order to defeat more than 30 different types of enemies.
  • Upgrade your abilities by collecting certain items such as the flying helmet and whirling boomerang, as well as coins and crystals.
