Microids announced today Asterix & Obelix: Slap them All!, a new 2D beat’em up in the universe created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo.
Check the teaser trailer down below:
Be prepared to prove your bravery! Asterix and Obelix: Slap them All! Is set in 50 B.C. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans and only one small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders. Play as Asterix & Obelix and set sail to the most iconic places in the comic book series while battling Roman legionaries, pirates, brigands and even the dreaded Normans. Get ready to slap left and right before the sky falls on your head.
Asterix & Obelix: Slap them All! is a brand new adventure arriving this fall on PlayStation 4, Xbox One Consoles, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The game will also be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S via backward compatibility.
Microids has tasked the development of Asterix and Obelix: Slap them All! on the hands of Mr Nutz Studio with the gaol of making this adventure as respectful to the original material as possible. The development team chose to go with an artistic direction very close to the comic book where the characters, the scenery, and also the animations are hand-drawn.
Asterix & Obelix: Slap them All! will be a tribute to the 2D animated classics and a style that will surely appeal to fans and retro gamers alike.
Here is an overview of the game via Steam.
