The new game from Game Freak (Pokémon) is called Tembo the Badass Elephant, and the name says it all. It's about a die-hard war elephant that rescues civilians from a crisis area while battling the evil Phantom Army. Naturally.

The whole thing is packaged as a comical side-scrolling action game, and it will be released in the summer on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Sega are to publish, and it'll be a digital title. Here's a bit about the story:

The National Guard of Shell City is helpless against an unknown threat, so General Krenman plays his last card and calls in his old buddy. This old buddy is none other than a peanut-munching, aggressively-stomping super-elephant by the name of Tembo, who's called in to save the day. The elephant, along with his friend Picolo, must jump, stomp, hit, swing and roll his way through seventeen levels littered with secrets.

Below we've got the announcement trailer and the first batch of screenshots. In addition to that we've already been able to talk to James Turner, director and character designer at Game Freak, about the new project. The interview, in which he explains, among other things, why Tembo is "like Rambo in elephant form", can be found right here.
