Game Freak, the developer behind the insanely popular Pokémon series, has finally revealed the release date for their odd side-scrolling brawler, Tembo the Badass Elephant.
Players will be able to kick some ass in the most badass way on July 21 – hey, that’s the day after my birthday! – It’s set to land on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Little has actually been revealed about Tembo the Badass Elephant, all we really know is that it’s a side-scrolling action game where Tembo’s trunk can turn into a mallet to wreak devastation on its opponents.
This is the first time Game Freak has released a game on Microsoft’s consoles, and it’s the first Game Freak title on Sony’s consoles since the original PlayStation.
The game will be priced at £9.99, with a 10 per cent discount being offered for pre-orders on Steam, as well as those subscribed to PlayStation Plus or Xbox One who purchase the game shortly after launch.
Oooooh, I get it, Tembo is a play on words, it’s like Rambo, but as an Elephant, or something, right?
