Sega have teamed up with Pokémon developer Game Freak to develop a 2D side-scroller called Tembo the Badass Elephant. The game is in development for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Tembo puts you in the shoes of an elephant that jumps and butt-stomps his way through 17 stages to fight the forces of “PHANTOM,” which are led by a tyrannical commander.
“We’re delighted to be working with Game Freak to bring this heavyweight adventure to an audience we feel it will have relephants to,” said John Clark, the Senior Vice President of Commercial Publishing for Sega Europe. “It’s a trunkful of fun and we think gamers are going to love it. Hopefully more than my rubbish elephant puns.”
Tembo the Badass Elephant is planned for release this Summer as a download title.
