Tembo The Badass Elephant Coming Next Week

By Mark Delaney, 2 years ago
What do Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steven Seagal, and Jean Claude Van-Damme all have in common? They weren't seven ton quadrupedal beasts when they lit up the action scene a few decades ago. Tembo, on the other hand, is an elephant. More specifically, a badass elephant as the name suggests, and still capable of hanging with the best The Expendables series has to offer. Game Freak's 80s inspired platformer was first announced back in March and today we know its release date. It'll arrive on the Xbox One store very soon, the 21st of July. If you aren't yet familiar, check out this stampede of screens.
