Sega, in collaboration with Pokemon developer Game Freak, have announced Tembo The Badass Elephant for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Due out via digital download this summer, the game is a 2D side-scroller that follows an elephant as he tries to contain the devastating forces ravaging his city.
Here’s the outline, via Sega:
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. Featuring 17 cleverly designed 2D side-scrolling levels, a whole host of deadly enemies and unique comic book style art, Tembo The Badass Elephant is the heaviest action adventure of the year…weighing in at about seven and a half tons of fun.
