Sega and Game Freak join forces for Tembo the Badass Elephant


PC, PS4, and Xbox One this summer

Game Freak (Pokémon, Drill Dozer) and Sega (Sonic Runners, Sonic Boom) are collaborating on Tembo the Badass Elephant, a side-scrolling action game about a commando elephant who will seemingly level entire cities on his quest to stop the evil forces of Phantom.

How does he sleep at night? On top of a pile of peanuts, probably. Tembo is slated for a summer release on three platforms that aren't the Wii U: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Odd.

I like the part where the helicopters are shaped like peanuts. Actually, I like just about everything shown in this debut trailer. Makes me wish Game Freak would branch out more often.
