You've all heard of Dumbo. But have you heard of Tembo?

Game Freak's Director and Character Designer James Turner announced on the PlayStation Blog that Tembo the Badass Elephant will be available on PlayStation 4 tomorrow.

Inspired by the platformers of the '90s, Tembo is "a big, powerful elephant commando who can bulldoze almost anything in his path." The team spent a lot of time trying to get the balancing control right; Tembo needed to feel heavy and strong but also "speedy and precise." You'll need all the strength and agility you can get, as the PHANTOM army will throw everything but the kitchen sink at you; a challenging swarm of helicopters, tanks and massive bosses.

Turner said that in order to realize their vision for this physics-based action, they needed the power of the new systems. He said that "working on the PS4 was a great experience," as artists could manage to "fill the screen with high resolution textures and environmental effects, and the level designers could pack levels with objects and enemies to destroy."

This one looks like tons 'o fun. Gonna give it a try tomorrow?
