[dropcap size=small]F[/dropcap]ollowing their initial tease last week, Pokemon developer Game Freak revealed that their collaboration with Sega is a game about a “peanut chompin’, villain stompin'” creature called “Tembo the Badass Elephant.”
“We’re delighted to be working with Game Freak to bring this heavyweight adventure to an audience we feel it will have relephants to. It’s a trunkful of fun and we think gamers are going to love it. Hopefully more than my rubbish elephant puns.” -Sega VP John Clark
The game takes place in the fictional world of Shell City. After a serious of “Phantom” attacks, the city is whipped into a state of emergency and there’s only one creature that can save the day – an elephant named Tembo. Players will take Tembo, and “jump, punch and butt stomp” their way through 17 comic book-style levels.
The game is set to release summer 2015 , and will be available for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
