Pokémon developer Game Freak's upcoming platformer Tembo the Badass Elephant is heading to PS4, Xbox One and PC on 21st July, publisher Sega has announced.

It will go for Ł9.99 / €12.99 / $14.99, though a 10 per cent discount will be available for pre-orders on Steam, or for PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold members who purchase it shortly after launch.

Tembo the Badass Elephant marks Game Freaks' debut on a Microsoft platform and it hasn't made a title for a Sony piece of hardware since the original PlayStation. While known for its Pokémon titles, Game Freak also made the platforming adventure Drill Dozer for the Game Boy Advance. Like Tembo, that title also featured a lot of bashing through stuff.

Our Chris Donlan rather enjoy his time with Tembo the Badass Elephant. "Rambo? As an elephant? I'm on board, I think," he wrote in his Tembo preview.
