Well this came out of no where, and from Gamefreak? Didn’t they only do Pokemon games? Still a game about a badass elephant seems interesting and a 2d platformer that looks like it came straight of Comix Zone (you do remember that game, right?) is right up my alley.
SEGA® of America, Inc., SEGA® Europe, Ltd and GAME FREAK Inc., have today announced the launch date for TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC as a digital download on each platform, will be July 21, 2015. Part Commando. All Elephant. TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT is a larger than life, 2D side-scrolling action adventure from the creative geniuses behind the Pokémon games.
Steam users who pre-order TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT before July 21st will enjoy a 10% discount on the SRP of £9.99/$14.99/€12.99, while PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold members will receive a 10% launch discount, making the whole package at least 10% more awesome. TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT features 18 action filled levels, packed with charm and cleverly designed platforming action all wrapped in a unique art style with a tongue-in-cheek humour that encapsulates classic console mascot games, with a nod towards 80’s action movies. Put simply, it’s seven and a half tons of fun!
“We’re very excited to be able to confirm the release date for TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT.” said John Clark, VP of Commercial Publishing for SEGA Europe, “We don’t think there’s a single game out there with a better name and hope that consumers will stampede the digital marketplaces in order to get their hands on this mammoth adventure!”
