This was a pretty good week when it comes to SEGA stuff, with them revealing new games and releasing 3D OutRun, a fantastic re-release of the original game with new features. And among the games they revealed was Tembo the Badass Elephant, an action sidescroller by Game Freak that’s coming to PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. It was playable at EGX Rezzed earlier this week, and the first impressions from the couple of our forum members who were there are pretty positive. It’s always nice to see a new quirky sidescroller, so we’ll be looking forward to this one.

First it was Pulse Man, Next was Harmo Knight and now this. Guess like Game Freak wanted a break from Pokemon for a while.
Pulseman was released years before they put out Pokémon. :V
But yeah, a few years ago they started letting their employees make smaller games and prototypes and stuff for part of their time, and so far from that has come HarmoKnight, Solitiba and now Tembo the Badass Elephant.
Damn, there are some juicy news here!
I love Hi-sCool Seha Girls! I’m watching the anime right now!
