Tembo the Badass Elephant Announced – New 2D Side-Scroller from the Creators of Pokemon Games

SEGA and Game Freak have announced Tembo the Badass Elephant; a new 2D side-scrolling game for current-gen consoles and PC. This new side-scroller is being developed by the team behind the Pokemon games and is scheduled for a Summer 2015 release.

Tembo the Badass Elephant will feature 17 cleverly designed 2D side-scrolling levels, a whole host of deadly enemies and a unique comic book style art.

John Clark, the Senior Vice President of Commercial Publishing for SEGA Europe, said:

“We’re delighted to be working with Game Freak to bring this heavyweight adventure to an audience we feel it will have elephants to. It’s a trunkful of fun and we think gamers are going to love it. Hopefully more than my rubbish elephant puns. ”
