SEGA and Game Freak announced its new collaboration title today: Tembo the Badass Elephant. The game is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC as a digital download, but not Wii U.

James Turner, director and character designer at Game Freak, was recently asked by Gamereactor about why Tembo isn’t coming to Nintendo’s console. Turner replied:

When I was writing the presentation documents for this game, I drew a mockup poster, and I put the Steam, PlayStation, and Xbox logos at the bottom. It seemed to fit, and it happened to stick that way. We thought about other hardware during development, but our hands were pretty full with those three platforms!

Turner was also asked about the possibility of bringing the game to other platforms in the future, such as 3DS. To this, he said: “Information on the potential for other platforms is classified. Right now our main mission is deployment on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.”
