I have only vague memories of Legend of Kay, which came out in 2005 and is about a cat that’s a samurai or something. It’s strange when the only real criteria I have for games is for them to feature bipedal animals, and Legend of Kay has these in abundance.
Considering how few waves it made when it launched, it’s maybe stranger that Nordic Games have decided to take on this old platformer to try and give it a second run. Legend of Kay: Anniversary [official site is coming out 10 years after the original PlayStation 2 release. Nordic are aiming for a bigger cross-section of gamers this time, releasing the remaster to PC too.
“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,” said the incredibly named Reinhard Pollice, business & product development director at Nordic Games. “We keep our options open to expand on the Legend of Kay franchise in the future.”
The game will be coming to Steam this summer, probably costing between £14.99 and £19.99, but for now you can take a look at how much it’s been updating right here on Steam.
