Microids has confirmed today that the classic Asterix & Obelix XXL will be getting the remaster treatment and will be amusingly titled, Asterix & Obelix XXL Romastered. It will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch platform on 22nd October in Europe. The action platformer was originally released in 2004. Here’s what to expect!
“Asterix and Obelix XXL Romastered will offer up to date graphics, an option to switch between the original game and the remastered visuals, two new game modes, new gameplay, new camera and some animations reworked from the ground up! Fans will be delighted to know that the original voices have been kept!
Asterix and Obelix come back to their village after a great day hunting boars only to find their village in flames and their friends missing. By Toutatis! Romans have striked again! Our two heroes and their dog Idefix set off on their journey to find the missing villagers held as prisoners all around the world.
Fight thousands of Romans, explore the world–Gaul, Egypt, Greece, Rome–and face the greatest challenges in this long-awaited remaster!”
Finally! The original game is coming to the Switch! Now I can actually finish it (no thanks to my GameCube 1019 memory card shitting on me and corrupting many of my save files on there).
I ordered Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 and 3 on Switch (Collector’s Editions), and I was wondering why they didn’t have the first game as well. I wonder if this game will have a Collector’s Edition that comes with little figurines as well (like the other two games)?
Why don’t we get this game in the United States?
