The launch comes ahead of the brand-new Cartoon Network original series, OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes, set to premiere on Monday, 11 September – giving Cartoon Network viewers a unique opportunity to get to know the hero of the show in a brand-new way.
The show is set in the town of Lakewood Plaza, which is filled with heroes and characters who strive to be the greatest heroes they can be. This means years of work, training, and dedication. When the inhabitants of Lakewood Plaza are offered a drink that will help them 'unlock their full potential', few can resist. Only K.O., who is allergic to nuts, and his boss who clings to his old ways, Mr Gar, do not drink the potion.
The drink, however, turns out to be nothing more than a ploy by Box More, and those who consume it are transformed into the evil version of themselves. Mr Gar is forced to destroy Lakewood Plaza and scatter the inhabitants around the world. It’s up to K.O. to rescue the inhabitants and restore Lakewood Plaza.
The app, OK K.O.! Lakewood Plaza Turbo, allows kids to take on the role of Cartoon Network’s newest hero, K.O., an optimistic kid attempting to level up to be the best he can be in a dynamic universe. In the app, K.O. is on a quest to save Lakewood Plaza from the Lord Box More and discovers what it means to be a hero.
Key app features:
- Action-packed adventure set in an open world;
- Play as K.O.! Unlock abilities, including 'Super Moves';
- Five environments to explore, plus Lakewood Plaza itself;
- Story with a plot told through 15+ interactive comics; and
