Launching on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch this fall
Earlier this month, news from Shredder’s Revenge made me bust my buried but thankfully still findable copy of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. Now here’s another announcement that makes me sigh for the glory days of Konami’s arcade: a sleek new Asterix beating game.
The nostalgia mining fighter is called Asterix and Obelix: slap them all And it’s coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in Fall 2021 from publisher Microids and developer Mr Nutz Studio.
Today’s press release suggests “pretty straightforward” beat-’em-up gameplay, which, hey, that may be totally fine! – and also confirms the local cooperative. Slap them all It will encompass “the most iconic locations in the comic book series” with enemies such as “legionnaires, pirates, bandits, and even the dreaded Normans.”
I’m not sure how it will feel to fight the Roman threat, but I appreciate the higher-than-usual effort to achieve the look of Asterix and Obelix: slap them all. Some nice details there.
If you’re curious to see beyond the short clip, Microids has a few more images here.
