This summer, the action-platformer The Legend of Kay will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a makeover from the fine folks at German developer KAIKO. First released in 2005 for the Playstation 2, The Legend of Kay places players in the shoes, or rather paws, of Kay, a anthropomorphic cat person who must use his martial arts training to free his people from the oppressive reign of the Gorilla Lord Shun.
The people at both Nordic Games( Kay‘s publisher) and KAIKO seemed very excited to be bringing the game into the modern era via this HD remake. “It has been a pleasure to work with KAIKO and having the opportunity bringing Kay back to life again,” comments Gennaro Giani, producer & localization manager at Nordic Games. “Legend of Kay is pure action-gaming with fantastic 3D Platformer Elements and a wonderful Soundtrack. My personal tagline for Legend of Kay: Easy to learn, hard to master.”
“Legend of Kay was a true gem on the Playstation 2 platform,” adds Reinhard Pollice, business & product development director at Nordic Games. “Our strategy is to focus on our IPs and make them available to as many players as possible and also on the current generation of consoles. We keep our options open to expand on the Legend of Kay franchise in the future.”
The Legend of Kay Anniversary hits the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on May 29th and will set you back anywhere between $19.99 and $29.99 depending on the platform you’re looking to buy it for.
