'Pokemon' creators team with Sega for a game about a commando elephant

Posted on

Sega

The developers behind Pokemon aren’t leaving animals behind in their next game, but they’re certainly taking them to a more badass place.

Sega announced that GameFreak, the studio responsible for the Pokemon franchise, will be producing Tembo the Badass Elephant for a summer 2015 release to be published by Sega.

Tembo is a 2D action game where players control the titular elephant, who becomes a one-man army against the mystery group PHANTOM. Alongside Tembo is his feathered friend Picolo, who will travel with Tembo across 17 levels taking on the forces trying to destroy Shell City.

Tembo is set to debut sometime this summer for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
