There’s a new Asterix and Obelix game coming to the Nintendo Switch and it is Asterix & Obelix XXL 3: The Crystal Menhir. We finally have a firm release date for the action platformer based on the classic cartoon books and it is coming on 21st November. Amazon Germany has revealed that Europe will get a special Collector’s Edition which includes a 15 centimeters-tall figurine of Obelix and Dogmatix, and two smaller figurines of Asterix and Obelix. Those wishing to get some hands-on time with the game before release will be pleased to hear it is playable at Gamescom this month in Cologne, Germany.

With its five environments, its different levels and its two playable characters, the game offers great content variety that will delight all players. Battle, exploration, puzzle or collection: are you hyped yet? Complete the numerous side quests and explore every corner to collect hidden objects and become a true Gallic.

For the first time in the saga, cooperation will be offered! Play with family or friends on the same screen: Asterix and Obelix’s actions will be complementary and the two heroes will play hand in hand to progress in the adventure.

The story:

The story begins in the small village of Armorica, where a daily peace reigns. But one day, the Druid Getafix receives a strange message that will lead our friends on a unique adventure. Helped by the mysterious Crystal Menhir, they will travel far away and face dangers like no other.

  1. Will they release the physical special edition of the game in the states this time, or do I have to settle for just the digital game again?

  2. I bought XXL 2 on the Switch, but only played it for a little bit before I gave up on it. It just wasn’t for me. Not sure if XXL 3 would be any more to my liking.
