Atari today announced that Kao the Kangaroo Round 2, Tate Interactive's 3D platformer starring Kao the yellow kangaroo, has shipped to stores nationwide.

"Kao the Kangaroo is an accessible, fun, pick-up-and-play title that will appeal to gamers both young and old," said Emily Anadu, marketing manager, Atari, Inc. "For just under twenty dollars, Kao the Kangaroo provides hours of fun, humor and great entertainment at a price that is easy on the wallet."

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.

Kao the Kangaroo Round 2 and Kao Challengers are rated E for "Everyone" and available for suggested retail price of just $19.95 for all platforms.
