A Cartoon Network series is closing in on a second season, which the network says will premiere in 2018. The network released an update today on plans for “OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes.”
“Created by Ian Jones-Quartey ‘OK K.O.!’ is a dynamic storytelling universe at the nexus of gaming and animation,” Cartoon Network said in its announcement. “Developed in tandem with the series, ‘OK K.O.! Let’s Play Heroes’ is the upcoming console video game.”
Cartoon Network also released the first official trailer, which you can see below.
“Season two will be even more heroic for K.O., Enid and Rad as they continue to level up with all new adventures,” the network said. “There are new threats and villains on the horizon as mysteries of Lakewood Plaza Turbo begin to reveal themselves. Surprise heroes will also make their debut alongside some familiar faces in special crossover episodes that will kick up the action, laughter and comedy into maximum drive.”
“OK K.O.! Let’s Play Heroes” is published by Cartoon Network, developed by Capybara Games and written in collaboration with series creator Jones-Quartey.
“This latest video shows off the many familiar characters fans can expect to see, as well as the game’s colorful blend of side-scrolling action and RPG elements,” the announcement notes. “When Lord Boxman resets the card levels of every hero in Lakewood Plaza, it’s up to K.O. to help his friends and secure his place as a true hero. Battle Lord Boxman’s evil robot army in fast-paced brawls, explore the mall to find quests to complete, and level up special POW cards for new abilities to put the pain on Lord Boxman’s most diabolical scheme yet.”
“OK K.O.! Let’s Play Heroes” is expected to launch on the PlayStation4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam in early 2018.
