Game Freak’s Tembo the Badass Elephant drops on July 21

Draws first blood on PC, PS4, Xbox One

I’ve covered Tembo the Badass Elephant only once — back when it was unveiled in March — and the side-scrolling action game is nearly ready for us with a July 21 launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Nice to not drown in promotional materials, for once, although I wonder how much that’ll affect sales.

The going rate for Tembo is $14.99, but there’s a 10 percent discount if you pre-puchase on Steam or buy the console version during launch while subscribed to Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus.

As a Sega-published Game Freak project, this had my attention by default. I hope it lives up to the great premise. Tembo’s trunk can turn into a hammer, you guys.
