Kao the Kangaroo Friends & Family trailer

The first of Kao’s allies highlighted in the trailer is Walt. In addition to training Kao to fight, Walt also served as a mentor to Kao’s father. Along with Walt, the trailer also showcases Kao’s stern but loving mother Marlene. Lastly, we meet Kao’s best friend Gadget who, as his name suggests, loves to tinker and invent. An official description for the trailer reads as follows:

Kao may be the adventurous, brave type, but that’s only made possible thanks to his friends and family. From loving parents to supportive friends that might have gotten him into some trouble in the past, Kao’s social circle is as solid as his right hook!
