The adorable Kukoos are making their way to consoles and out of PC early access and need your help saving their brainwashed pets! Kukoos: Lost Pets will be available across PlayStation 4, Switch and PC on December 6 from Modus Games and developer PetitFabrik. Today’s release date announcement was accompanied by a brand-new trailer showcasing that you don’t need to save the pets alone, you can bring a friend (or three) into the action at any time via local drop-in co-op:
The Kukoo Tree, once a safe haven for Kukoos, has been taken over in a rebellion of brainwashed pets, and it’s up to you to set things right. If you want to save the Kukoo Tree, you’ll need to travel through a tour of distinct, colorful worlds in the adventure of a lifetime solo or with friends. Despite their pleasant looks, they’re filled to the brim with wild, unexpected obstacles for the Kukoos to overcome.
Kukoos: Lost Pets is a game for all ages, approachable and easy for anyone to jump into, but engaging and fun for even the most advanced adventurers. Help save the frenzied, brainwashed pets from evil with a cast of diverse playable characters and additional critters to take control of.
