Publisher Microids and developer Mr. Nutz Studio have announced a November 26, 2021 release date for sidescrawling brawler Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Additionally, it will receive limited and collector’s editions, though it is not clear at this time if they will be limited to European regions. The Asterix & Obelix limited edition contains the game, a keychain, two sticker sheets, and three lithographs, whereas the collector’s edition adds a 27cm (10.5”) Asterix figurine and a collector’s box.
The game itself is set in 50 B.C.E. Gaul, which is under Roman occupation, and you are going to clobber your way to freedom with classic beat ’em up gameplay and local co-op. You will visit Egypt and Spain in your adventure as well. Mr. Nutz Studio consciously tried to evoke the original art style of the classic French Asterix comics as much as possible, and it really shows. Check out the release date trailer for Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! to see how beautiful a job Mr. Nutz Studio has done with the animation.
Pricing has not been made available yet, but Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! is looking like a faithful rendition of an iconic franchise — and potentially just a fun time all around.
