posted on by Karen Ressler
Sega announced on Wednesday that it is teaming with Pokemon developer Game Freak to release a 2D side-scroller game titled Tembo the Badass Elephant for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam this summer. The game will be a digital download only on all systems.
Sega describes the game:
Shell City is plunged into a state of emergency after coming under attack from the devastating forces of PHANTOM, led by a mysterious masked commander. Terrifying war machines emblazoned with skulls tear through the city leaving a trail of destruction in their wake! As the National Army struggles to contain PHANTOM, General Krenman sees the mammoth task at hand and calls upon the only thing that stands between Shell City's obliteration and its salvation; the peanut chompin', villain stompin', PHANTOM romping BADASS Elephantidae…TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT!
Aided by his faithful avian companion Picolo, it's up to TEMBO to jump, smash, punch, swing and butt stomp his way through the PHANTOM hordes as he aims to bring about the end of their tyrannical onslaught.
The companies teased the game earlier this month.
